    That guy seems like he gets hard ons for trains. Still, least he's our train geek.

    Watching the NFL game this afternoon Levy must be laughing all the way to the bank when it comes to the naming rights, I don’t think I have ever heard a stadiums name been mentioned more in my life, in three hours I don’t think they have gone more than two minutes without saying Tottenham Hotspur Stadium and that’s being conservative, Levy’s negotiating tactic will be to just to sit any potential sponsors down and make them watch a NFL game from the Lane.

    Well, I rather enjoyed that. Great noise - even when less than half full, the boos and cheers were reverberating around the stadium. Man size seats. Decent beer. Which didn't run out (although there were some problems with the Budweiser pish at our bar). Even the food was well above the usual football stadium fayre.

    Despite being shiny and new, the stadium still had character, with some nice touches around the place. It'll never be WHL, but it's definitely something to be proud of.

    Nice one, Levy.

    Strange being able to drink at your seat though.

    Dunno how big the underground car park is but might struggle to squeeze in the 35,000 vehicles stipulated in the NFL’s Super Bowl criteria!

    The Host Committee for Minneapolis told the Star-Tribune “while the Minnesota Super Bowl Bid Committee did not agree to all of the NFL’s Super Bowl bid specifications, the competitive bid remains private."

    We don't know exactly what the Host Committee declined to accept, but it clearly didn't matter.

    A bit of a typical poor article trying to address the money return question -> https://www.football.london/tottenham-hotspur-fc/news/spurs-nfl-money-stadium-levy-17079463

    Synopsis is

    - Flat "rental fee" for each game
    - Food and drinks revenue (Drinks alone has exceeded 1M each game)
    - Kit revenue from Spurs shop (which switches from 90/10 Spurs/NFL to 10/90 stock on NFL day) and apparently store had significant lines on both game days.

    Big payday would be if Levy gets a sponsor that see value in stadium naming for both NFL (they have bigger naming rights deals) & PL in one deal.

    Usual, when it comes to money, Levy is the best in the business

    That laser show is not part of the on site lighting system. It was a hired system for the event

    It allows Americans to sit and eat junk food and donuts and at the same time not miss anything, as nothing really happens.

    I think you have to be SUPER into it to fully get it i.e. when they line up and face each other, if you can see that player X is going to fake this way and that, but player Y already saw it but oh-no! player Z actually faked and gave it to player G who blah blah blah.

    All I see is smack whack grunt whack smack yeeearrrrr SHMACK

    Interesting - I'm sure I read a year ago that our state of the art lighting system was of the same type that could do all that shizniz. Do you know for a fact that it was a hired in system?
