    Why is it that the escalators at Relaint Stadium are ALWAYS broken? How freakin' hard is it to have escalators that need to work 12 games a year (not counting rodeo)? This isn't a recent problem...its been happening since the very first season.

    Broken escalators are also known as stairs.

    Not when the officials prevent you from grtting on them as 'stairs'.

    I just find it rediculous that as something as simple as an escalator should brake down constantly.

    LOL!

    They do seem to overheat a lot.

    Odd. I haven't missed a home game, use the escalators all the time, and have not seen them broken once! Maybe I'm just lucky!

    She Texan must not use the gate formerly known as the Miller Lite gate. One or more of the escalators at that gate are out of order on a regular basis. Freakin' rediculous. Especially for the stadium with the most poorly designed ramps in the NFL.

    I hear ya, I am in section 514 and last week it was the top escalator and this week the first floor was out. I would be happy to use them as stairs since it would save time compared to the ramps with their 3 degree elevation!

    I come in from the Bud side, and have to admit, I only have to go up one flight. I get off on the 100 level so my heart, and legs, go out to you guys who have to either walk the ramp or WALK the escalator up to the top. I would have to go to first aide!!:jogger:
