    Estes Stadium in Conway

    Pros: small environment. The Stripes. Nice video board.

    Cons: small seating. Food SUCKS. Poor Gameday planning.

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    Pros: Great Tailgating set-up, indoors, new video boards, loud, pretty decent highway access, bacon and pork chops on a stick

    Cons: Too small, need another 5K to 10K seats, Not enough GA tailgating spots, no beer inside,

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    Cowboy Stadium

    Pros: Good seating with no track, good atmosphere, great tailgating setup, loud cannon, and new turf (starting with next season)
    Cons: Scoreboard is starting to get outdated, ugly new (last season) handicap ramp down to the field in the north endzone, and not enough fans.

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    Western Illinois University - Hanson Field

    Pros: Beautiful location right in the middle of campus, east side (visiting & band) side stands are decent, concessions area and bathrooms on east side are nice, field turf, new "Rock" Hanson statue just outside of stadium, new video board and scoreboard work well
    Cons: west side (home) stands are old and falling apart, track around field, nobody shows up, new video board is still tiny compared to many conference-mates.

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    EJ Whitmire Stadium in Cullowhee, NC, home to the Western Carolina Catamounts
    Built in 1974
    Capacity - 13,742
    Surface - Desso Challenge Pro 2 turf (2008)

    Pros:
    - Excellent parking that's close, easily accessible, friendly attendants and for visitors, free
    - Gameday experience - very good to excellent tailgating often with a bit of a party atmosphere(especially in the fieldhouse lot with the students), great athletic dept staff and police presence that's not intrusive
    - Beautiful setting with views of the NC mountains and it's just off the center of campus
    - Seating is close to the field
    - Paws Porch on the roof of the field house
    - Enthusiastic band
    - Great video board
    - Great looking turf, in person
    - Loyal fan base even when we've sucked

    Cons:
    - Built in 1974 with the only major improvement coming with the completion of the west stands and concessions area in 2003
    - Press box from 1974 and no luxury suites, geez it needs a good coat of paint
    - Small field house
    - Turf looks a little odd on TV/video, mostly because of the angle of the sun
    - Chain link fencing around the stadium

    Re: Pros and Cons to your stadium

    Thanks for all the replies. After looking at the responses, we have many of the same issues (parking, RV spots, no indoor beer garden). The uniqeness of the Dome, you will find that our field goal posts are bolted to the end zone walls. Pro-Con? It is what it is.
