    Is it April 1 again? That looks like a joke. (Esp. the tower).

    Pre is spinning in his grave.

    On the other hand, when it's done, it will probably be very impressive.

    if Pre were still alive he'd be a very rich retired man, sitting on the Nike BOD and and being a driving force for the construction of this facility.

    Hey, you've got a career in politics, as you've mastered the art of taking both sides of an issue. Congrats!

    I was serious. I HATE the loss of the old HF, but I am progressive enough to welcome a new idea. It will grow on ALL of us. In 25 years we'll have enough cognitive dissonance to remember the old HF as being too antiquated and out of touch with state-of-the-art stadia.

    Looks horrible....where is the 12000 stand coming from...that thing is huge..and no picture of the East Grandstand...

    Almost all of the meets at Hayward get at most 3000....it is going to be bizarre....all this for one dumb meet....

    And to say it's the same Hayward is like tearing down a Frank Lloyd Wright house and putting up a MacMansion....they can build that monstrosity anywhere there is vacant land..and use it for some other purpose......what is so special about 15th and Agate...

    I'm going to throw up...

    Just say you don't know what you are talking about and leave it at that....what is this 12,000 going to look like? Zero news on that..Blocking off sections is idiotic..and except for this stupid one off meet.....there is no reason for anything bigger.

    I think it will be just a big white elephant like most if not all stadiums become after a one off event....all this for Phil Knight's ego....

    I think a 12,000 stadium even without the East Grandstand would be fine...if done right....but there is no plans out there showing what that will look like....just this huge thing that is way too big for any other meets...
