I know this is probably Germans but this weekend in particular, the atmosphere in the new Alex Box just appears low key. I know the facility is top notch but the crowd appears detached. I've been to the old Box numerous times & I just don't get that "magic" eminating from the new Box, at least from a TV broadcast perspective.
Not saying that's why we lost. I've never had a chance to see a game in the new Box so I can't speak from someone who's been. However, a packed house in the old Alex Box was a great atmosphere. It just appears from watching on TV it lacks something. Can't really describe it.
quote:yall are comparing 90s gorilla ball to nowadays. i really dont hink you can compare the 2 time periods. That like saying Tiger stadium was way better louder and crazier back in the 70-90s than it is now.
you are correct. it's not a huge drop-off but it's noticeable to anyone who's been going for years.
that being said I really really like the new box and I think it's first class. I don't find myself missing the old box that much - just the memories..
