I think he was agreeing with you, perhaps worded like this it would have been more to his intent:
"As pbromaghin says, it is worth noting that the court is of course lit a little brighter than the seating area in most arenas so don't assume the whole place is evenly lit."
At least that's how I took it based on your previous comment.

It is worth noting that the court is of course lit a little brighter than the seating area in most arenas so don't assume the whole place is evenly lit as pbromaghin says.
Not sure where you got the idea I said it was evenly lit. The difference in the influence the court and seating have on the meter is my biggest problem
