It will have less seats next year, higher prices and you have to buy a cable subscription to see them around here if you don't see them live.

I heard that it was closing, but never why. Are they building a new one and taking this one down?

That's nuts! I would think for 1.7 billion they would be able to give the old one an updated look!
