I don't work for the Blue Bombers, but I feel that Ed Tait's May 17 column, New Blue stadium lives up to the hype; now it's up to you, leaves out one the best seating-design features of the Investors Group Field.

The sightlines are greatly enhanced for spectators. The seating areas in both upper and lower decks are curved so that people sitting near the end zones have a view straight back into the field without having to turn their necks or look around a neighbour.

This is common in all new sport facilities built south of the border, and a major upgrade from our old stadium and Shaw Park, where the stands were built in straight lines. This and other amenities (such as the wide entrance concourse), plus its profile on the University of Manitoba's Fort Garry campus, make it by far the best sports facility in the city.
