Next step for Bombers

Letter of the day

Re: Cowbell flip-flop just a silly mess (June 12). Now that the Blue Bombers have relented on the noisemaker issue, they might like to look at food and drink offerings.

Last year, my wife, son and I were fortunate to go to a rugby match at the Olympic Stadium in Sydney, Australia.

The new Investors Group Stadium viewed from across the Red River on River Road. This is a panoramic photograph that is made up of many photos that have been stitched together to create a long wide photo. The panorama image is not meant to capture a specific moment in time, as a conventional photograph does. It captures an environment over a few seconds. Elements were not added nor remove from a scene. May 29,  2012  BORIS MINKEVICH / WINNIPEG FREE PRESS

One of the things that impressed us was the variety and quality of the food. Besides the expected burgers, fries and dogs, they also had healthy alternatives, like chicken and salad wraps and even some vegetarian options.

If the Bombers are going to prevent fans from bringing in any of their own food, then they should look at offering choices for people who don't want to have the high-fat, high-sodium and sugar-loaded items their concessions sell. Also, I suppose people who follow a kosher or halal diet will have to go without.

In addition, since they're not allowing people to bring their own bottled water, maybe they could sell the water at a price competitive with convenience stores instead of charging two or three times the going price. It's interesting that the MTS Centre isn't afraid to have water fountains.

By the way, the stadium in Sydney had superb, multi-level parking facilities. What will we have at the Investors Group Field?
