^ Poor camera :lol:

They had an open house for the proposal of Edmonton's new hockey arena. They had AEG Guys there, the people who brought you Staples Center and LA Live. FUCKING EPIC!! http://www.revitalizedowntown.ca/



Some sorta of "Winter Gardens" aka LA Live where they gonna have an Oilers Hall of Fame. How about some statues of Gretzky, Messier, Kurri, Fuhr, and the rest?





Stantec and PCL better do some good shit! Where are the bums gonna go? I'll miss them at the Greyhound station. HILARIOUS Daryl Katz:


Kevin Lowe agrees!

peep this shit I jacked from 2dopeboyz:



“It’s hard being a sports fan these days.”

“Stadium Status” is a documentary which examines the rush of new sports stadiums in NYC as the latest example of an obscene national trend. New stadiums are built every year and the private businesses that own them benefit from huge sums of public money for their creation. Are we getting our money’s worth?

What's going on with the new Nets Brooklyn arena is horrible. I believe all those residents at the Atlantic Yards have already lost their homes and for no good reason other than the greed of Bruce Ratner.

Shea Stadium was a real shithole. The Mets needed Citi Field. And if the Yankees didn't get the new stadium they definitely would have left for the Meadowlands. And if that would've happened City Hall would have been burned to the ground. Really nobody's complaining about the two new ballparks now.

Just for fun here is a list of all the new NYC area stadiums/arenas:
Yankees - Yankee Stadium (opened 2009)
Mets - Citi Field (2009)
Giants/Jets - Meadowlands Stadium (2010)
Knicks/Rangers - Madison Square Garden (renovations start spring 2011)
Devils - Prudential Center (2008)
Nets - Barclays Center (planned opening 2012)
Red Bulls - Red Bull Arena (2010)

The Isles are the only ones not in on the party. They're stuck at the dump called Nassau Coliseum until 2015.

Looking nice! But I hope for your sake, Dai, that Edmonton will have a team that deserves a new arena when they build it.

Stadiums you've seen a game at?

Giants Stadium - East Rutherford, NJ
Izod Center - East Rutherford, NJ
Prudential Center - Newark, NJ
Yankee Stadium - The Bronx, NY
Old Yankee Stadium - The Bronx, NY
Citi Field - Flushing, NY
Shea Stadium - Flushing, NY
Madison Square Garden - New York, NY
The Vet - Philadelphia, PA
Wachovia Center - Philadelphia, PA
The Spectrum - Philadelphia, PA
The Palestra - Philadelphia, PA
Franklin Field - Philadelphia, PA
Liacouras Center - Philadelphia, PA
Michie Stadium - West Point, NY

That's all I could think of right now.

Hmm... Edmonton - Rexall Place for Oilers hockey

That's it   :D

This was hilarious, good thing I never order any food. shit's expensive - tho I did have the free popcorn during practice :lol:

 

Rexall Place has 24 health violations
Edmonton arena's food safety record worst among major Canadian sports venues
Last Updated: Monday, July 26, 2010 | 10:16 PM ET
     
Edmonton's Rexall Place has racked up 24 health code violations since 2009, making it the worst major stadium in Canada from a food safety standpoint.

Edmonton's Rexall Place has the worst food safety record of all major sports stadiums in Canada. (CBC)
A CBC News review of health inspection reports found a wide range of violations, from unsafe storage of food to a lack of sanitizer bottles for cleaning food preparation areas and utensils.

On Jan. 27, 2009, as fans watched the Edmonton Oilers lose 10-2 to the Buffalo Sabres, a health inspector wrote up eight violations against concession stands.

At one concession on the main concourse, the inspector found undercooked hamburger patties. At another stand a box of frozen patties was being stored at room temperature. A third concession stand had four hamburgers sitting out at room temperature. The inspector noted it appeared they had been out for a long period of time. Three other instances of food being stored at an unsafe temperature were found, and the inspection also found that there were no paper towels at a staff handwashing station.

When an inspector visited Rexall Place again on Dec. 19, 2009, 10 more violations were found. There were 50 wieners being thawed in a pot of water; bacon, chicken fingers and french fries stored at room temperature; and shredded pork being held at an unsafe temperature. The inspector also wrote up two citations for a lack of sanitizer bottles and one for a staff handwashing station lacking soap.

Five violations were found during an inspection on Jan. 28, 2010, including beef being kept at an unsafe temperature at a buffet in the media lounge. Another violation was recorded on Feb. 6, 2010, with ground beef and cheese for pizza sitting at room temperature.
'They deal with everything': inspector

Despite the hygiene blunders, people eating at Rexall Place can keep doing so, said Michael Kahn, the Alberta Health Services inspector who vetted the facility.

"They deal with everything I ask them to. Every time I've caught something that's a critical violation, they ensure that they try to make sure it doesn't happen again," Kahn said.

"I think it's important that we put this into perspective. It's a big facility. The amount of violations that I find there is in conjunction with many other facilities that I inspect, like regular restaurants."

Kahn said he does his inspections when Rexall is busy, during events like Oilers games, and said that may be why he's catching more violations.

Other major Canadian sports facilities fared much better, however. Scotiabank Place in Ottawa had no violations, nor did the Rogers Centre and Air Canada Centre in Toronto. Inspections are carried out by either provincial or municipal bodies and therefore vary somewhat across the country in how they assess food safety.

A Rexall Place spokesman called food safety "a top priority" for the venue.

"When issues do arise, we take every measure we can to address them and to identify them," Brian Leadbetter said. "I know that there were many jurisdictions in the United States, for instance, that had significant issues that were far more severe than those that were captured here."

According to ESPN.com, some stadiums in the United States fared much worse — with Tropicana Field in St. Petersburg, Fla., recording a 100 per cent failure rate when its vendors were inspected.

SHIT! Los Angeles and AEG knows how it gets done, just genius. Farmer's Field looks EPIC! Saw it off Magic Johnson's twitter: http://www.farmersfield.com/pages/our-plan/





Quote
Developer: AEG
Project Manger: ICON Venue Group, LLC
Design Firm: Gensler

Stadium Specs
Seats: 68,000, expandable to 78,000 for special events like the Super Bowl or NCAA Final Four
Location: Downtown Los Angeles at the current West Hall of the Los Angeles Convention Center, alongside the STAPLES Center and L.A. Live.
Size: Total new Event Center would be 1,700,000 gross sq. ft. with a retractable roof.
Funding: $1 billion investment for the development of Farmers Field, all privately funded (this means no debt for the City of Los Angeles).
Parking: 32,000 parking spaces within a 15-minute walk to Farmers Field are already in operation.
Traffic: To limit congestion, Farmers Field will utilize four freeways and over 20 interchanges (on/off ramps), and continue to use the successful traffic and parking model employed by STAPLES Center, L.A. LIVE, and the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Plenty of politics involved but epic staidums benefit all. Imagine SMTOWN there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111111111

Edmonton Arena Debate makes the ultimate push FORWARD!! lotsa citizens came out to debate but FUCK. as much as Rexall is the ultimate arena with no bad seat in the house, it's a shitty facility cuz the concourse is just too tight and the team needs money to survive, FACE FACTS. What other tourist destination is there than an epic arena vs some stupid museum(s)!! Just use Rexall for kids shit like Selena Gomez :tama-mad:

Even Messier agrees!


now I just need to find out which company is doing the design so I can apply for a job there XD
