Scoreboard Pictures

A week late, but as promised here are some pictures I snapped of the new scoreboard when in Hamilton last weekend. I must say that I didn't find the scoreboard to be overpowering in any way. If anything, it surprised me with how much it elevated the overall look of Andy Kerr.

Standing on the visiting side, and looking at the Dunlap stands with this scoreboard in view, and you get the feeling like you're in a pretty serious football stadium. Now, we just need to take care of that visiting side...

Anyway, the pics. Enjoy!

The scoreboard in all its glory. Looks like Colgate Raider fans should be using Alliance Bank wherever possible. They are the big time advertisers on this scoreboard.

In rebuttal to some message board banter, here's the look from behind the scoreboard. The trees hide it very well, and it hardly takes away from any view of the valley.

This is from the top of the stairs leading to the Dunlap stands, right above the visitors half-time locker room.

Here are the Dunlap stands and the new scoreboard framed together. I think it anchors down that endzone pretty well and gives Andy Kerr some new 'heft' and clout!

This is from the visitors sideline. A wonderful view for opposing teams to watch replays of another Colgate touchdown!

And, in the interest of some equal opportunity, here is the new scoreboard for Van Doren field, home of the soccer teams. No video, but a nice upgrade nonetheless.


  • I have bad, bad memories of the previous scoreboard...

  • I'm bothered by the overwhelming advertising signs on the scoreboard. It seems that the white Alliance signs abd others overpower the red "Colgate" areas and take away from focusing on the scores and other stats. I would rather have had alumni foot the bill for this and kept the advertisers out of it. It cheapens the whole deal...

  • Maybe I've got Colgate blinders on, but I think the ads are totally appropriate and make the stadium feel more legit.

    Once there is actually a scoreboard there and some video on the screen, I think those adds will fade into the mental background, much like some internet advertising is. You focus on what matters once you've been looking at something for a while.
