yep .. however, i've always been a fan of our old olympic stadium; and i think that given another round of tender loving care, it could regain it's place as one of the world's great sports venues.


it's not like the area around it is dead either .. it's actually booming, in a way. spruce up the concrete lot it's on with some trees and nice landscaping stuff, renovate the concessions area inside so that it's doesn't look like a post war bunker, ehm ... new seats maybe, and fix that god awful thing they call a roof and it could be a great place for an, say, NFL team to come play a few regular season games :P

DO you have a hi-res version of the second picture of the stadium with the city skyline?


I have been looking for that to put on the wall of my garage for my expos tribute


i found this looking for high resolution pictures of the stadium (the actual one, you know, the 70 thousand seater we have in the east end ? remember that one ?).


anyway, it looks like an awful scan, i'm not sure how it would turn up printed. there's even a line the middle that looks like a fold. nothing a little photoshop love can't fix, though ...

Ce projet était très avancé, les plans de structure pour construction avait été complétés, dommage, ce stade était très beau avec le centre-ville derrière, ce stade aurait relancé les Éxpos.:mad:


Je ne suis pas sûr que ce stade à lui seul aurait permis de relancer les Expos. Il aurait fallu que ce stade soit plein pendant 10 années de suite. Souvenez vous, qu'en 2004,la masse salariale des Expos était d'environs 35-40 millions...la plus petite de la ligue. POur pouvoir compétitionner sur une base régulière avec les meilleures équipes, ça prenait une masse slaraiale d'environs 75 à 100 millions par année. Pour pouvoir se permettre cette masse, lews Expos avaient besoins d'attirer au moins 35,000 personnes par match, pendant 162 parties(81 parties à domicile)...et à Montréal, je ne sais pas si cela aurait été possible!
