According to the Detroit News story linked above:
"One thing I'd love to do is close in at least one of the ends," Brandon said. "The south end of the stadium is the place we would start.
"If we were to take the bleacher system up to the top of the (new) scoreboards, which would be even with the elevation of the east and west towers … it would take the total capacity of the stadium up close to 119,000, maybe 120,000."
Not exactly sure how I feel about that. Part of me is like "cool" while another part wonders is another 10,000 bodies inside the stadium (and their cars outside the of it) a good thing? A what point does it start to negatively affect the gameday experience?
My biggest beef is that no matter how big the stadium gets, the ticket prices will continue into the stratosphere. I think it sucks ass to know that even if they were to squeeze a million people in there, they'd still continue to charge folks $70 - plus the @#$% seat license fee! - to see Michigan sodomize EMU.
This actually reminds me of an old post and picture on The Onion entitled...
No longer sure if that belongs on The Onion or instead the front page of the Detroit News circa 2046.
