Coliseum Could Have Been Worse

USC originally had some plans for the Coliseum to have “towers” on both sides of the field. Imagine how much of a relocation that would cause? Instead of the current 9,000 it would have been twice that. Or more.

    Historians will look back at Pat Haden’s Folly and shake their heads.

      I’ll say this for the proposed finished product – it is no where as horrific as to what those ‘progressive/white-left’ elitists did to Soldier Field – they completely destroyed it’s beauty.

      • Jethro G Sabbath

        So “progressive/white-left elitists” handled the Soldier Field makeover?
        Please, tell me more.

        • Alvarado

          Yes of course they did….note the ‘flamboyant’ sweep of the oh so bloated arc of acceptance and the giggling of the traipsing minions prancing and flitting all over…..completed before 2008 ‘but’ rest assured it was 100% Obama approved and sanctioned…Obama approved and sanctioned….never any blow back for anything approaching malfeasance – when did any demokratiche president ever get mocked? Obama the worst ever

            Awsome!

  • Ken Hart

    Shut up please!

    • Alvarado

      Huh? Hey did any f us know that was the original plan to alter both sides of the stadium? I didn’t – someone pushed back and I’m glad esp. if this was ‘Haden’s’ dream – where is Pat Haden? Why is there no word about this golden boy and his true fall from grace?

      • marvgoux1

        Some people can’t handle the truth.

        • Alvarado

          Seriously Marv did any of us really know this was the fully intended plan by Haden? I seriously doubt USC had anything but full acceptance of this plan – I suspect it was the historic preservation/monument committee that push hard way back against the dual build – they should have re-designed the north side and saddled the media with the sun and heat they deserve.

          • marvgoux1

            Ken apparently did and wanted it kept a secret. I loathe company men like him.

          • Alvarado

            He sure seemed indifferent to the revelation huh?

          • Jethro G Sabbath

            So why are you a “company man” for Donald trump?

    I hear the suites are already 93% full. Is that true?

    • The USC Heisman 7

      Yep!

      • Sas

        Wow! That was fast!

      • Sas

        Are you in a suite?

        • The USC Heisman 7

          I am still on the fence.. My season seats are below the walkway in tunnel 7.. So I am safe.. I sent a email to USC stating we are keeping our season seats, but are open to the new seats if the number worked.. Hope all is well.

          • Sas

            Cool. Should be a great year buddy!

  • I doubt Haden cares what people think. The guy has enough money to last until he is 1000 years old, but since his health probably limits him to maybe 7 more years of life, he is financially fine, if anyone cares.

    . And like most people with public opinion against them, Haden will rationalize his way out of harm’s way, and fall back on his financial well-being, as short-lived as that probably will be.

    • Alvarado

      Got it John but you know and he knows in his obituary is going to be the Mayr Foundation scandal and his lead role in the plundering of it.

  • Ted

    You dummies need to be thanking God for Pat Haden and the Great Scott Wolf! You could have had two towers looking down on you with the eyes of Sauron at the newly named Chico’s Bail Bonds Memorial Coliseum”

          I heard. But I mean his brain.

        • Sas

          I feel sorry for them. Hope the mom recovers.

    The Rams Stadium is pushed back to the 2020 season. There’s still time for another change.
