Titans Controlling Owner Amy Adams Strunk on Friday "made her biggest pronouncement yet" about Nissan Stadium's future, saying she "wanted to put to rest any idea that she will be approaching the city seeking a new one," according to Paul Kuharsky of PAULKUHARSKY.com. Strunk has said in the past that she was "not yet thinking about a new stadium even with Nissan Stadium's lease set to expire" following the '29 season. Strunk said, "I don't want a new stadium. But I do like The Hard Rock Stadium. That's a very interesting model and one that we need to keep looking further at to make improvements. I'm all about making it the best stadium for our fans that I can without being ridiculous. Because at the end of the day the stadium doesn’t win football games." She added, "That's important to me. Fan experience -- we have a lot of areas we get better at every year. We've got to just keep looking down the road for what would be the best thing for our stadium to become." Asked if the Titans could play at Nissan Stadium while it undergoes a major renovation as the Dolphins did at Hard Rock Stadium in '15 and '16, Strunk said, "I definitely think so. I think we can retrofit it. Whenever this transpires" (PAULKUHARSKY.com, 8/2). Meanwhile, see what Nashville Convention & Visitors Corp.
