We should have a 2nd Screen

by bobby1413 » 14 Sep 2017 14:20

I think the club should get a 2nd big screen over by the ED and West Stand

My neck hurts from twisting round all the time. Also the guy next to me continually thinks I'm looking at him and we often have awkward eye-to-eye contact

But with an extra screen you can't pretend to look at the screen when you are really looking at him. Catch-22

We should aircraft style personal screensinstalled in the back of all the seats...

Don't worry about not being able to see the screen Bobby, there's nothing to see. They don't even have team lineups these days...

Yes they do, well they have done at matches this season anyway.

Another screen would be great, but I would imagine it costs mega bucks

That exact same thing happens to me. The bloke must think I'm a weirdo

No you don't. You just want something to complain about. If they built it you'd only find something else to moan about.

How dare you, just how why... I'm lost for words.

Be good if the club could provide free wifi connectivity at all home games too, I mean this is the 21st century after all.

This, particularly if they want to engage fans in interactive stuff on our devices, such as the new points scheme suggests.

Decent free WiFi should be a given.

Dodgy reception won't encourage anyone

I don't suppose you know how much free wifi in a stadium costs clubs do you?

No idea, do you?

The trade off is the revenue they might generate through in game activities via fans' devices

I believe it's becoming a thing in sports stadia

Surely the easiest way to achieve good internet connectivity is for them to have 4g boosters to increase the bandwidth available. As most of us use our mobiles to access the web in the stadium it is that route that opens up the best opportunities.

I do, and it's a value of money which the club just cannot justify spending I'd imagine. Not less because fans should be watching the game rather than being on their sodding phones.

Celtic paid a multi million pound fee for their in stadium wifi, and it doesn't even work that well. It's just something that is realistic or justifiable.

In regards to 4G, why can I never get any internet services at the ground despite it being connected. Eg I can't get any scores or online stuff but people around me can.

I'm on vodafone so is it just because there's loads of other Vodafone users and we all are swamping the network and so we are all blocked off it?

Yes. That is why you need a booster to increase the available bandwidth.

Turn 4G off :wink: you'll have more success with 3G. This advice also is useful for emergency situations.

This will probably upset a few people but Brighton had a really good free wifi available at their ground which I used without issue on my last visit.
