Crazy Question
What's the old saying? If you have to ask the price, you probably can't afford it. In the New York area where I live, Giants fans actually paid thousands of dollars just for a "seat license" that gives you the right to spend even more money buying the actual tickets. I'll watch it on TV, thank you very much.

Re: Why fi?
Interesting point about costs. Is it really going to be free or passed down to ticket prices? What a crazy question... Nothing is free.

Wifi
 

The free wifi would be a good perk. Even with 4g sometimes the video streaming isn't as good as a Wifi connection. I'm not sure how that can help determine concession service levels. I'm sure there is data that can be collected; I'm just not seeing it right now.

Screw the Wifi. How about charging less for beer?
