Not sure why that should be the case.

(1) Seating may begin at ground level, or it could begin higher up. West Ham have that choice.

(2) An athletics track is fairly standardised, and the seating is not going to be any further away from the track than most big athletics stadia. Presumably the same would therefore apply to previous athletics stadia converted to mixed use.

(3) What is the angle? How does it compare to most recent football stadia, e.g. Wembley or Emirates?
1) not in their plans they don't. They are keeping the lower bowl and removing the upper temporary structure. Therefore seating starts at ground level.

2) Further than any non-track pitch. I think you'll fine that large event stadia also have more space around the track for media and circulation. This is no Crystal Palace remodel they're designing!

3) google it, I'm too tired to explain

Or it can begin one row up (above advertising hoardings)?

Oh sure, but my point was not to compare this to a single-purpose football stadium, when the seating will always be closer. I was proposing that, as football stadia with running tracks go, this won't be unusual.

My bad for the poor phrasing. I know what you mean by the 'angle', I was asking what the angle was in degrees.

You claim it it is too shallow an angle, but to me it looks pretty much like the kind of angle you get at new football stadia like Wembley or the Emirates. I may be wrong.

The camera lens always fore shortens the image so that i not accurate to be fair.

But I have been to the scumriates when it newly opened. Long story I hadnt seen a cl game and I like architecture and the missus's dad is a big gooner with connections so he got us tickets for scum against hamburg. Well his connections wern't so great cos we were in the upper tier on the side behind the goal. Not that far from the front of the tier but you couldnt tell if it was walcott or henry for one half.

They tolerate it now but as soon as peado goes they will have a husk of a stadium. Why would you pay a grand to see scumants run around for 45 mins.
I have also been to the Emirates :oops: and sat high up directly behind the goal (leg-room was shit btw!) and yes agree about it being hard to make out the indvidual players etc. Heaven knows what it will be like at the Olympic Stadium!

I just wish we'd leave the Spammers have it, it'll be the noose around their neck! We need to move on and get another plan in action. Preferably in the N17 area...
