We should switch the TV camera to the East side of the stadium.

    Sometimes I think I'm too smart to be watching football. And then I look at my post count which brings me back to reality

    I agree that there's probably a way to do if the broadcasters really wanted to, but most of them wouldn't want to deal with it.

    But It could really affect more than the 3:30 games. The 12:30 starts would have the issue later in games, especially later in the season. And the 7:30 games could have some issues particularly early in the season.

    For those thinking we should build skyboxes on the East side, exactly like the West side, keep in mind that there could be some major almost blinding reflection issues from all that glass during these same periods. My guess is that if and when they build them, there will be less glass or something done to significantly reduce the reflective surfaces.

    It is strange that few places do this. I was in Yankee Stadium two years ago sitting in the nosebleed section on a day with the temperature around 100 degrees. They have an awning stretched out over the top deck and it was incredibly comfortable. My buddy had spent $400 each for box seats and he had to tip the usher to move back to worse seats just to get in the shade. It seems a lot more economical than a dome.

    I've always wondered that myself. Maybe someone needs to contact www.sunsetter.com. This could be beneficial for both. They could come up with something that could work and at the same time make money by selling these to other stadiums.

    Good points related to football but why haven't we made the camera switch for basketball?

    Actually, that's a good example for not expecting an increase an interest level just because you lighten the requirements for admission.

    Go GATORS!

    My point exactly. The stupid kids at FSU are also skipping games.
