Another pic of the new massive MSG scoreboard has been leaked out, but there seems to be a big problem (H/T reader Anthony G)...
Damn that's one big shadow that thing leaves. Here's some more pics (H/T HF Boards)...
...i've got to assume there are lights in the under belly of that scoreboard to help alleviate that ridiculous shadow. Although, you know what happens when you assume.
...as to the scoreboard itself. Amazing stuff. Too bad half the arena won't be able to see it. Damn bridges.
the screen that leaves a massive shadow is perfect for the terrible new Rangers team, who will leave a massive shadow all season long. FIRE SATHER! WE WANT MESSIER!
Those bridges are idiotic. I hate the Dolans.
Off topic: I have a mini plan and have a couple games that friends can't attend with me. If there's a fan who wants my +1 at face value, I'm happy to share with a fellow diehard. Sec 223, top row, $75.
Wow those bridges, though I haven't seen them in person, look terrible from the stands. Maybe it would be a good thing to move the garden sooner rather than later!
looking forward to tonights game! all the guys i wanted to bitch about played well...lol. i love seeing this.
lets hope for some carry over and some momentum. if not for the points for the standings, then just for the sheer entertainment. that was one of the funner (is that a word?) games that ive seen in quite some time.
Yeah I was going to say the same. Looks nice. Now get that shit finished so our boys can get off the damn road.
I don't think this is something to worry about. In all probability this photo was taken with just the work lights on in the arena and not the sports lights. The lights under the board would not be used to light the playing surface, they are movers that go all over the arena and can project images.
Too bad I will never see it in person unless I win the f'n lottery or become friends with some wealthy stock brokers. Supply and demand with too much money involved....the real fans have already been bought out for years. It's sad.
We as true rangers fan have to do whatever we can to keep msg rowdy and authentic. I have so many childhood memories and even current memories of the ludicrous things that occur during ranger games;especially from 97 to the lockout. I've ways felt like ranger fans have differed from the average fan group and we must keep it alive for the future of all ranger fans to come
There's a chance that some lights haven't even been installed just yet. I'm sure it will come out fine.
@TheNYRBlog the arena lights aren't up all the way in the pic.
@TheNYRBlog They have lights on the bottom.
@TheNYRBlog w/ the new additions,msg is slowly losing there home ice advantage,its too commercialized.not rowdy enough,u price out real fans
@TheNYRBlog i think the bridge was an ambitious idea,,but that $ could have been spent in improving msg and not adding gimmick seats
@TheNYRBlog it's nice. But we're still in obstructed seats. So yeah.
@thegumper FIRE SATHER!!!!
@johnnyb3910 Decided to break it up. Trust me, they'll be a post on this shortly.
@johnnyb3910 "Rumor" is true. Have two friends who have worked on the construction crew at MSG over the summer. I have photos of the new piping before the floor was poured on top.
@FireSather yup. tickets for 3 for the family + stupid prices on concessions? hundreds of dollars. ive got the cash but cant justify spending it in that way. hope that doesnt make me a bad fan...
@Jercooks845 Ive been to many games over the past three years including 3 playoff games. This year I keep looking at prices from every outlet and I cannot rationalize going to any game at these prices. I might be done. I'll always try for playoff tickets but I refuse to buy regular season tickets at these prices. it sucks, but to me it's not worth it anymore.
@ScottMark98 Let's hope so.
@AG_Blue It looks like it. But lights under scoreboard are probably not on.
@Sioux_per_man I hope so.
@NH_NYR_88 @Jercooks845 Mentioned this in a thread a while back, but my wife and I started buying tickets to games in NC, FL, etc and flying down. Face value tickets plus a cheap flight is still better than the markup in big markets like NYC and FL. Just moved to the Tampa area and already have my tickets for two games against the lightning: 10 rows from the ice $95/each.
