    Just a question regarding rink capacity. Now that Cardiff Devils are an established success, should the owners invest in adding seats to IAW? We sell out a lot of games, so surely it makes sense to add more. All the premier teams around Europe have around 5000 minimum.

    We have been here before. Where would you like to put all the extra seats?

    Gantry - 100% possible.
    Only one slight problem, 0% ambition in putting them there !

    Is it possible to flag a topic as boring and repetitive?

    There's so much space on that gantry they could put an extra 1000 seats and still have space to store all Thommo's excuses.

    I have been on the gantry. Easily able to fit an extra 5000 seats, 5 snooker tables, a small animal petting zoo, 3 land rover discoveries, a climbing wall, a full production team and possibly a gym. Or not

    And with the new retractable roof we can host U2's Joshua Tree 50th Anniversary tour in the not too distant future....

    Maybe we should be able to sell our laps as additional seats???!

    This.

    There's no need for the snarky replies. Just because a lot of you people spend every day trawling these boards doesnt mean everyone else whos dares to post a thread on what a lot here consider to be their exclusive little forum. Dont be so fkn rude to people not in the inferno old fart circle jerk.

    I absolutely agree. I was embarrassed reading the responses today. New members or ones that don't spend day in day out on this site may not have seen the previous threads. New posters should be encouraged, not derided.

    I didn't think anyone was being rude to the original poster. We were joking around with KingMo19.1 ?

    I don't think that IAW will ever be expanded. As much as I'd like to see it the costs would be too great as it would also likely involve the purchase of the facility off Greenbank too. Basically the roof would have to come off and it extended out for it to be anything over a hundred or so.

    It's more likely and a better bet that the Devils will be playing elsewhere in 5-10 years time than there is of extending. Im sure the management will be keeping an eye on any developments of the CIA's replacement which is due within 5 years that will be a Sheffield/Belfast type of arena.

    I'd love to see the Devils move back into town as l've never been a huge fan of the bay. If the CIA gets replaced will a new arena be built on the existing site? Also l think it would turn IAW into a white elephant if the devils moved to a larger multi purpose arena. This is Cardiff county council we're talking about though so l think a replacement for the CIA will more likely be closer to 10 than 5 years time. Hopefully TK and the Calgary 4 are still running things by then because a 10k+ arena full of Cardiff Devils fans chanting 'lets go devils lets go' would be quite a sight, and sound and if anyone can fill an arena that size Todd can.

    Really? So remarks like 'BORING' and 'ls it possible for threads to be marked as boring and repetative' are "joking" in your book? Not mine, but l suppose it's acceptable for the dads army posters to be rude and condescending as it's "joking"...
    Gotcha
