Other than size AGCS is better in every conceivable way.

But baby, yours is so much prettier than my ex's huge one...   ;D

The West side is shabby and the concourses are terrible.  The East and South sides, though?   The concessions and home football team were natrocious.

Lol. Just another example of people outside of Arkansas not being impressed with something here that we Arkansans are. All that talk about DWRRS and how awful WMS and LR is, and TCU fans are S#!+ing  on DWRRS.

TCU remodeled their stadium and reduced seating to allow more chair packs. It's a nice stadium.

They are right about the concessions and the water shortage.  That is very poor planning.  I was there and the lines were the worst  have ever seen.  People were filling up their water bottles at the drinking fountains and that caused even more congestion.

That was a pretty good read. Sounds like we were fairly well behaved. Frankly, I don't care about the condition of the stadium, but agree with their issues about the concessions. So stupid. Maybe Long needs to tweak that before adding a bunch of suites.

I like this one, and alludes to our poor second half history—
When they were loud it was pretty intense at field level. But they didn't have much to cheer about that is for sure.

I hardly remember them calling the Hogs after halftime.

Tell that to the thousands that continue to move there each year. But it's pretty obvious NWA can't compete with DFW.

Give it another 10 years and you'll have close to a million people.

This right here. Our area gets accolades, but of course it's missing a big city vibe and missing a lot of what a place like Dallas has to offer. It's missing a lot of the BS and bad stuff, too. We're in a nice little sweet spot, I think.

Million people and a 1-11 football team given current trends.

I've long maintained the more UA retreated into NWA the more money they would make at the expense of actually winning any games.

A great trip! Leaving with a win always makes it better. Agree with everyone else about the concessions being absolutely horrible. We have been to many stadiums across the country over the years and this was by far the worst.

Talk about leaving money on the table. Seems like everyone wanted to buy something but most chose to watch the game vs missing 2 quarters to get something at the concession stands. The fact that you are not allowed to bring an unopened water bottle in the stadium and it would take 2 quarters of waiting in line to buy one, plus the water fountains don't work, it's almost criminal.

Quote
Everything about the stadium except the actual seats was a total joke. Could not believe what a cluster it was to get in or how poorly designed the place was.

Quote
The fans were gracious and they used to be rough back in the day. How many of you were at the last 3 at Ark games (88,90, 17). Mrs. Dutch said 25 years of eating humble pie has softened them up.

It really is interesting reading what visiting fans have to say.

I've heard this both ways.  I sat next to a Bama Fan a few years ago at DWWRS.  He talked about going to every Bama game and having been in 90% (I think he said the only one he hadn't been to was Vandy) of the SEC stadiums and that ours was easily the nicest one in the conference seating and  amenities wise.

They apparently aren't impressed with their own stadium either.  The place was 2/3 full after halftime last year and a LOT of that was red.  They hadn't scored at half and they can exit and reenter the stadium so many didn't come back. 

It all comes down to a competitive, winning product on the field.  The rest is window dressing.

The stadium isn't all that bad, but no excuse for the problems with concessions.  Long better figure out how to make going to the games enjoyable because the team isn't much help.  Maybe we'll see a Frank Broyles bobblehead day coming or a first 5,000 fans get a free hog finger night.

Was in Alabama this summer. Had a hog hat on. A waiter we had had no idea what Fayetteville was. Or where the university was. Or is that not "anywhere in the country?

No. If the next tampon vender gets the sad news he is heading to Arkansas for a while to work for Walmart....then I'm sure they know exactly where nwa is. Don't mean they are thrilled.

Only inflated mindset of the area. The rest of the country could give two craps about Arkansas. Much less a particular region of Arkansas.

When I attended the Bama game in 2010, the only seats I could get were in Bama fans area. All the Bama fans were very nice, and very complimentary of our stadium, and how loud it was. They didn't say anything about the concessions. I've always had issues getting food and drinks at DWRS. I try to go to the bathroom before I go into the stadium, even if I have to use a porta potty.

As for food or drink, I have always just had to pick my moments when to try. I usually just go without because the lines are always so bad. Not that big a deal if I hydrate right before I leave my truck.

In all fairness most of them were right regarding our Stadium, it has a bad design, the concourses are very low and tight and I don't care what they do with the bathrooms they are not enough for a Stadium of this size.  Their are parts of the stadium that has the look of being cheap, others I know are not going to agree of course but I've worked most of my life in construction and I've seen cheap workmanship on a lot of big jobs that doesn't get tagged just so the work keeps moving along.  RRS has many such flaws, BUT, if you look at every Stadium across the country you are going to find the same such problems, especially if you have and old Stadium that has been added onto several times throughout its history.

Why do you think anyone give two craps where anywhere is?  I don't, I have been to ever corner of this country and points in between.  We are all the same pretty much about our homes and if you do move away you spend you life trying to get back.  It's funny but I bet a lot of those Texas kids coming up here for school have such past connections to the state.

Well if ya'll believe it, it must be so.  There was a time it should have been harder than it is now but it wasn't.  Go find another mantra, we can recruit the players we need for the right system ran by the right coach.  Finding that coach might be a problem...

TCU Stadium is sh*t.  Been there many times, it's a serious sh*tpile...(+ the TCU posters speak as if they have an overwhelming lead in the series which, by astronomical light year proportions, is opposite of reality...).  The Hogs will be back on top soon....

I was in California this summer and a park attendant didn't know where Minnesota was.  "That's just above Texas, right?"  That's not a reflection on Minnesota.  That's a reflection on stupid people.


No. If the next tampon vender gets the sad news he is heading to Arkansas for a while to work for Walmart....then I'm sure they know exactly where nwa is. Don't mean they are thrilled.

So then they sign up for the minimum 2-year commitment and get pissed when they have to leave and go back to some place far worse...and now they know it.

I have no dog in this fight but it seems to me like you might have misread his post.

Maybe, but how many people in "the rest of the world" have you talked to? Most of the TCU fans commented on how nice Fayetteville was. Go anywhere in the country and mention NWA to someone that has been there and they will most likely have good things to say.

Your account of the waiter in Alabama who didn't know anything about Fayetteville is kind of pointless because that person had never been to NWA, so they wouldn't be an example of a person that hogsaint has mentioned.

Sorry, just an observation.

We don't have the population around us to recruit at a high level. More NWA grows more opportunities we have.

Not unless demographics change.


The rise of NWA has been bad for HS football

WRONG. NWA's rise has nothing to do with the fall of football in the central part of the state.

RRS is nice, but I haven't been to all that many road games over the years and I have probably been to 10 stadiums that were nicer, larger and had a better game experience. For the size and wealth of our state, we have a nice stadium. But it doesn't rank anywhere near the top nationally IMO. Razorback fans on the other hand rank in the top 10 as passionate fan bases go IMO. I have seen some more fired up at games (Ohio State and LSU for example) but not many.

On the other hand the NWA wine and cheese crowd overall is a negative IMO. They are somewhat arrogant in my experience and are not as devoted as fans in other parts of the state. That's why they don't travel to LR for games any more. I had some tell me they are not going to drive 2 hours for a home game and I have also heard a lot of negative comments about the neighborhood WMS is located in. Some NWA fans have told me they don't want to drive into the hood for a game. Lots of negativity and class judgement from some of the NWA fans that has been detrimental to the football program overall IMO.

TCU Stadium is sh*t.  Been there many times, it's a serious sh*tpile...(+ the TCU posters speak as if they have an overwhelming lead in the series which, by astronomical light year proportions, is opposite of reality...).  The Hogs will be back on top soon....

They have renovated and damn nearly built a whole new stadium at TCU. I've not been there since though. However I did notice that many more of the visitors were in the upper deck. I admit the concessions there are not good and the concourse is not very wide. Of course the concessions were not good throughout RRS last weekend!

When all the booster club types run to wall marts land participation rates among the less fortunate drop.


Most of Arkansas is now a basketball state.  UA can't attract those athletes to flightville either.

ALL of my family and friends would prove you wrong. You come on here and constantly prove you're not a Hog fan and geographically filled with hatred. We get it. Time to go away and troll elsewhere.
