Ax is doing the best the can hoepfully so we hopefully hear in the next couple of weeks.
For me, that's not enough. By that, I mean that the SPJA has had knowledge of the situation since January at the minimum. It's been almost 5 months with no solution. This is feeling like when you call in to a customer service number and after explaining the problem, you're put on a painfully long hold, the entire time listening to "We apologize for the delay, but your call is important to us..."

With so many people worried about safety, this is the kind of thing that needs very immediate and swift work, let along that they could be cutting off traffic for those of us that plan ahead and booked hotels near the LACC. It's similar to when people pre-registered for 2011 very early, but suddenly there were lower pre-registration rates a couple of months later.

That's about the line of logic we came to a conclusion on in the other thread, that the Olympics date affected the X-Games.

I am a bit more concerned about foot traffic since the X-Games is using the Staples Center. That will mean multiple lines and crowds around this building, and after being there for SummerSlam, I've seen how the walkways around the building on all sides are just choked with people. The only thing I haven't seen in this regard is when you add beer to the mix since the WWE does not do alcohol sales at their events.
