People aren't going to go just see it, that's not the point, it's simply a nice addition to the arena (like a new sign or statue out front).
Besides, what difference does it make to you if they add it? Are you going to complain that it's too big or something? I don't see any negatives in getting a new scoreboard other than maybe cost.
Clearly people aren't going to go just to see it.
To answer your rhetorical questions, What difference does it make to you if it remains the same? Are you going to keep complaining until it gets replaced (size has absolutely nothing to do with my argument) I really don't see any positives in getting a new one either( that aren't completely pointless). I know that it will eventually be changed, but the purpose really goes no further than to please people who think that having outdated technology really matters (in this case anyways). My whole point is that it's not necessary. I think the board we have now adds character to the rink.
