ASU to Shrink Wells Fargo Arena?

Wells Fargo Arena

Doug Haller of the AZ Republic wrote that ASU is talking about shrinking down WFA to a capacity close to 10k.  This would create a better atmosphere for the fans and provide a bigger home court advantage.  In what is the 2nd largest arena in the Pac-10, ASU draws an average of approx. 7,500 fans a game.  Last years team averaged the biggest crowd since 1995-96 (approx 9,500) and in such a saturated market, will probably rarely eclipse that number. 

What I hope to see with this change is a complete overhaul of the seating.  For years people have been complaining of the discomfort from the person behind you jamming their knees into the back of their head.  The arena is in need of a continued facelift, perhaps matching the seats with the athletic department's dream of a gold out.  Why not help out with gold seats, or at least Sun Devil maroon.  What do you think about changes to WFA?
