Unhappy w Rose Bowl "Improvements"? Contact the RBOC Now

Ahhh, the return of UCLA football.

The play of our team has been discussed and dissected six ways to Sunday. What I want to talk about is the new improvements at the Rose Bowl, specifically the new video board.

As a long-time season ticket holder I was looking forward to seeing the first round of improvements at the Rose Bowl. Sure, it is a very historic venue, but some updating was needed.

I can say that the new video board is very impressive. The clarity of the picture is amazing. But, as impressive at it is, it is still lacking. There is now no indication on the North end of the Rose Bowl as the current game relevant statistics such as down and distance, score, quarter, and time left. Nothing.

If you sit off of tunnel 2 as we do, row 16, you need to turn to look at the scoreboard at the South end or turn to look behind you to see the new scoreboard on the East side. What is worse is that we could barely read the titles of the various data items on the south scoreboard from our seats as the titles are not lit in any matter. No way anyone from the North end could read them.

Is complaining about having to turn my head to read the scoreboard being overly critical, perhaps. However, if you're spending the kind of money that the Rose Bowl Operating Company(RBOC) is then you would think some thought would have gone into the overall guest experience. Not just what the future suite buyers will want to see. While we may no be big ballers with a suite, we are 4 chumps with season tickets going on 20 years and faithfully support what has become a lackluster product.

So, perhaps some of you that were there against San Jose State are feeling the same way. Maybe not. But if you do, you may want to use the RBOC Contact page to let them know how you feel about it. Sure, you'll probably get a canned response, but you'll get a response.
