Yes, let the refurbishing of James Brown Arena begin, but we definitely do not need any skyboxes.
How about first replacing or repairing the antiquated public-address system that cannot be understood at all on one end of the arena – in Sections 118,119, 120 and 121 – which has been non-operational now for several years? How about replacing the big scoreboard over the middle of the arena that also was broken beyond repair? Other competing arenas have big overhead boards with large video displays, which also enhance advertising.
We do not need any skyboxes. No one will buy them.
