Red Wings' Little Caesars Arena to swap all 18,600 of its red seats for black ones First thought was no thought really.....I didnt really know if this would be effective or not for what the purpose is or if its truly a problem? I mean, I've seen the explanation that multi-coloured seats make empty seats "look" better and can see the results on tv. Im not sure how straight black will work. And going back, if we are talking about modern arena design, while the revenues produced from this arena style are probably big......as a fan Im sure at that point I would like a Euro style arena more. Heard Glenn Healy on Jeff Blair's show saying the reason the NHL doesn't love the Euro games is because there is slightly too much emphasis on the "regular" fan. So yeah, going back to it, Im not entirely sure how I feel about this.
