I'll admit, I am not crazy about the bridges. However, do not understand why everyone will be so obsessed with the scoreboard. Do you go to watch the game or the scoreboard? They will have the score, time, stats, and video on the bridges. I am worried about the view. If I stand up, will my view be obstructed?

I go to watch the game among the masses. If I'm at the back of a tunnel then I might as well stay home or go to a bar

Any word on what tickets in the bridges are going to go for(STH price)? Guessing they are going to try to market them as premium seating, I'd be interested at under $110/game or so, but I'd guess they are going to be more than that.

If I remember correctly they were planning on making the bridge seats premium...so probably over $110/ticket. Not sure I'd rather be that high up as opposed to Row 1 or 2 of the upper bowl.

Had a feeling, at that price, I'd rather take gallery seats in the upper bowl.

Has anyone ever found out officially why you have to manually override your computer's date and push it forward by at least three weeks to view the most recent construction photos? That seems like nothing more than bad web design to me...

I thought the common wisdom was that they wanted to hold back the 'latest' and control the message

I guess the best fans in the upper 200s can hope for is that the bridges won't obstruct the playing surface in any way or fashion. Not being able to see the scoreboard won't be that big of a deal, but I can imagine that the tunnel vision can be disorienting.

They look to be right where they should be... There will be seating on the bridge, just like on the West End Balcony, so the steel you see hanging down on the ice-side above the construction platform will be the base of the pour for those seats... with the bridge platform located higher and behind.

I have been advised that the media will be moving to the bridge next season, and the platform currently being used will become DAP exclusively (the 200's, 8th & 31st quadrant).

A few season ticket holders had access to the new 3D Seat Selector. Is the new one public yet?

I'm astonished that seeing the main scoreboard is so critical to people. Life was okay prior to 1990 before we even had a center ice scoreboard.

You guys are missing the big picture (literally). It's not about seeing the screen specifically, but more like seeing the entire arena and being immersed in the crowd. Who wants to sit in the back with only a view of the ice looking below a bridge in your face? The tunnel vision vibe is the problem. Missing the scoreboard sucks too, but that's not the bigger issue

The solution is simple but brutal... You'll have to either sit in an unaffected area or stop coming to games.

When they came up with this design, MSG bet that the bridges wouldn't piss people off enough that they'd stop coming... Or they knew that the bridges might cause people not to come but were confident they could get others to take their place at the same price.

It's not that I don't get it. I just think it's not enough of a reason to stop coming to games, especially sight unseen. Not all STHs who post here sit in the 200s.

If the media is moving to the bridge, does that mean there will be seating in the corner 200's where the media is now? And there's supposed to be 1,000 seats on the bridge, that won't all be needed for media on a game to game basis.

EDIT - Media doesn't take up one seat like a regular person does, usually more but still it seems like a lot of room that won't be needed during the regular season.

They were really tight in the press box this season, so if they're moving media to the bridge, I would think that would become something of an auxilary press box, which they had above the old section 334 before the renovation. I'd be surprised to see the main press box moved, because it's right at the elevator that connects us to the press conference room, locker rooms, and the media entrance. Moving all the media away from that doesn't seem like it would make sense. They haven't said anything to us about it, as far as I know.

I have been advised that the seating in the lower corner 200's, 8th avenue end, 31st side, will be a DAP platform. No new general seating will be added. DAP all the way. What is not known is if they will be tearing down the higher glass that was in way of this media / DAP platform.

1. Home TV
2. Away TV
3. National TV
4. Home Radio
5. Away Radio
6. National Radio (slim to no chance during regular season)

That being written, all the broadcasting facilities will not be used for all games, but they will need to reserve enough to make it work, for say a National game on NBCSN that is not made exclusive.

A typical two-person media team takes up maybe two rows, 8 seats, all said and done considering all the production staff and the needs of the broadcasters (notes, laptops, monitors, etc.)

What we do not know is how many rows of seating they plan to install on the bridges. If they install 4 rows which span 5 sections each, at 25 seats per section, two bridges, that's 1000 seats.

They could also be adding bar stool seating behind the rows of seating...

Cheers!

home away and national tv is all already taken care of. that wouldn't move from where it is now.

there will be 2 rows of seating, along with barstools much like the west balcony.

How are they (TV Media) already taken care of if media is moving to the bridge. As I wrote before, I have been told they will NOT be in front of 222 any more.
