^ Why did they leave those peculiar gaps in the seating bowl in the first place? I'm surprised they didn't just finish it off when they expanded the stands a number of years back.

Winnipeg Warriors maybe. And maybe a team in Ottawa the Ripsaws possibly?
The Winnipeg Roughriders. It has a nice ring to it.

I believe we'll already be seeing that group on the turf at Investors Group Field this year...

Starting tonight, I believe.

I'm not entirely sure why they left those areas clear.. In the past, they have offered Sportscasters area to have vista over arena while talking about events..


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mSDYg7HUTCM

..and have been used most recently for added live entertainment (live band) such as during the last NLL Finals game.



It also offers space for drawing second level curtains for events etc..
The space can simply have seats slid into place if used on retractable base..



..or seats could be added on a permanent deck like the rest of the upper level..

Considering SaskTel Centre has been filled with sell out crowds 8 times (that's 8000 extra saleable seats that could have been there) in the last couple weeks alone including Justin Bieber's concert tonight, I wouldn't be surprised if SaskTel Centre gets those seats erected in those spots in the near future..
