As a non-fan of the team, I was blown away by Lambeau. The stadium and hall of fame are cool enough as it is, but the fact that it rises up like a monolith out of this tiny city with nothing but small houses, restaurants, and a two-story Best Western around it just adds to the mystique.
 
2013-06-26 07:18:31 PM  
I lived two miles away.
It was fun.
Generally I'd have sales reps take me to the games, but when I went with friends, Lambeau rocked for tailgating.
 
2013-06-26 07:25:37 PM  
Lambeau is hardly a surprise at number 1.

SilentStrider: Lambeau is hardly a surprise at number 1.


I assume that the headline is referring to the fake-out with the Metrodome.
 
2013-06-26 07:41:31 PM  
I've never been to the Metrodome, but the Colts' old stadium, the RCA Dome, was pretty awesome.  It had great sightlines, it was well lit, and entering in through the airlock was cool.

Pretty good list, but giving a +1 for automatically going with deslide. Good jorb subby

Subby, I want you to write a book about internet etiquette, and then shove it down the Fark's throat. You are awesome with the deslide!

/was sad not to see the Superdome - not because it's a particularly great stadium (it really isn't, even with recent and massive upgrades) but because so many amazing sports moments have occurred there regardless of whether you're a Saints fan or not

I have always wanted to see Lambeau in person, but have just never had a reason to go to Green Bay. I was in Madison once, but because everyone there is apparently a raging alcoholic I got dragged down in a weekend of debauchery, missing my change to see it. Love or hate the Pack, there's no denying the legend of that field.

Ehh....good to see Cardinals Stadium on the list.  It is new, it is clean, it has really good sightlines.  I've sat all over that barn and for some reason, even when you are int he shiatty seats, it feels small.

one thing i liked about Sun Devil is how in late afternoon, the setting sun would cast this amazing orange light on the field, which made for a pretty cool visual.  that iconic picture of Pat Tillman running off the field (memorialized in a statue on the northwest entrance of the new stadium) was taken in that light.  I talked to the photographer (it was a Cards/Saints game in i think 1998, possibly 1999) and he said that was one of the things all the photographers missed (probablyt he only thing they missed!) about Sun devil;  that amazingly warm, orange light that came through the stadium's southwest portion at the end of games.

Where's Tampa's pirate ship?   That's much more cool and family friendly than anything on the list.

I've always liked Ford Field.  That brick makes it look like a college stadium.  Outside is nice too.

I'm a Bears fan, and I've been to Lambeau once (for the game in Jan 2011 that we lost 10-3). It was an awesome atmosphere. We parked about 2 miles down the main stretch (Oneida, I think) and hiked through the sea of green & yellow, and orange (hunters). What a stretch.

/one day I'll be able to afford to go to Soldier Field
 
2013-06-28 02:53:48 PM  
Can't wait to see Arrowhead that full again.
 
2013-06-28 03:13:21 PM  
That Colt's stadium is friggin' ugly.  It looks even worse in person.  Really?  Millions of dollars at your disposal and a team of architects and all they could come up with is a barn?  To be fair, my Seahawks have a stadium only .1% less ugly, nothing worse than an It's A Small World theme welcoming you to a smash mouth football game.
 
2013-06-28 03:17:14 PM  
Lambeau and Arrowhead were very, very cool. Hitting up Soldier Field this year and the Superdome next year!

/Ravens fan who goes to one road game per year
 
2013-06-28 03:18:35 PM  
Why do they even bother with a roof that opens only a tiny bit like Cowboy Stadium? It's the difference between having a real convertible and a moon roof. The stadium in Seattle seems to get it right... well, as right as a convertible stadium can be. Atlanta's new Goatse stadium is going to be another moon roof type stadium even if they're trying to fool everyone by making the non-opening part of the roof clear. There still will be no wind coming in and with the slightest chance of rain, it'll get slammed shut... or maybe I should say, the roof will pucker up tightly.

I always thought it was cool to be driving along the freeway and look over at a whole shiatload of purple seats when I was driving past your stadium.
 
2013-06-28 03:26:14 PM  
Surprised they listed Soldier Field "the Muffintop". There isn't a whole lot that's remarkable about the place, other than it's an old stadium with new upholstery.

/Bears fan
 
2013-06-28 03:27:07 PM  
Arrowhead and Lambeau are the two game-day experiences I'd really like to experience.

And Seattle, but for the Sounders rather than the Seahawks.

I am not going to disagree with that point

Since I have toured a lot of stadiums (have seen all on the list except for candlestick) I would just say this
Raymond James should be on the list, but I suspect its not because it is in a craphole neighborhood.
I know I am biased but I really don't like Soldier Field, yes they kept the old and melded the new but they did an awful job with it. Its like they landed an alien spaceship on top of the old Soldier Field.  Hard to argue the location so close to Shedd and the Field Museum and the lake like that beautiful spot.

Oh nice fake out with the Humpty Dump. That place SUUUUUUUUUCKS I would rather watch a game in the dilapidated Silverdome.
I am glad Minnesota got a new stadium done.

Maybe you should look into why it was designed the way it was before you open your mouth. There is usually a reason why things look the way they do. Context can provide reasons.

They always bring up the BBQ when it comes to Arrowhead. I've always liked the place because it just seems like the right size for the venue -- more collegiate than other stadiums I've been to.

Seattle looks like a really neat place to watch a game, too. If somebody told me they pumped in Hendrix during the breaks, I'd put it on my bucket list.
 
2013-06-28 03:44:23 PM  
I had the (mis)fortune of landing at Sea-Tac during afternoon leading up to the kickoff of a Seahawks game. Every car around me had Seahawks gear adorning dashboards, windows, bumpers, and the rest. I was on the road for two hours. Two miserable hours. It should have been a half-hour drive.

You guys love your football, that's for sure.

That field has a shiatload of history that make it worthwhile.  They're tearing it down after the Niners leave.  That history is gone.

It's also the last place the Beatles played a concert.

Rhypskallion: Where's Tampa's pirate ship?   That's much more cool and family friendly than anything on the list.


As someone who used to live in Tampa and go to Bucs games I was kinda surprised it wasn't on there. Its a well done stadium and the pirate ship is certainly unique. It gets bonus points for being within walking distance of about 20 strip clubs.

Lucas Oilfield?  "Vibrant downtown?"  That building is blah, and Indianapolis is lame.

The Superdome may architecturally be extremely 70's but it ain't blah like the Lucas Oilfield.  Jesus H Christ, the French Quarter is vibrant, not Indianapolis.

And this will make it less ugly how?  Unless its a tribute to all barn dwellers far and wide who have given their lives in the cultivation of livestock I don't see your point.  I have been there, I have stood before it, and behold, it's a multimillion dollar barn.

Plus it shoots t-shirts into the crowd whenever the Bucs score (which probably means there's a storage unit in Tampa somewhere overflowing with t-shirts).

History? HISTORY? Now you care about history? What about Kezar? But you already tore that down, didn't you, after you abandoned it for your fancy new park. Now they play Frisbee there, where John Brodie once faced down the Fearsome Foursome.
And now you kids are leaving Candlestick, because it's all about something new, isn't it. You don't care about history.

Family jewels friendly.

But yeah I was wondering why the Tampa stadium was left out. I always thought it look great on T.V.

Really? I always thought that the Seahawks stadium looked to be an ideal venue. I was kind of hoping that when we get a new stadium here in St. Louis that we'd copy CenturyLink Field.

Wow still talking. There's a reason why places like Hinkle Fieldhouse, Conseco Fieldhouse, and Lucas Oil Stadium continually get voted some of the best venues in the country. It's because most people find them aesthetically pleasing, they are good facilities, and its continuing the architectural tradition of fieldhouse style venues in Indianapolis.

You don't need to go there to appreciate the "history". It's a shiatty ballpark and a shiatty football stadium. Poorly designed (heaters for the seats buried too deep in the concrete). Field below sea level. Concession area designed for shiat.

And the Beatles concert is famous for noone being able to even hear them.

But I'M the idiot... YEEEAAAHHHHH

Candlestick absolutely sucks balls.  I don't care about the history.  I don't like that the Niners are going to Santa Clara, but burn that shiathole down.

Been to Soldier, Metrodome, Candlestick (duh), Arrowhead, and Lambeau.  Arrowhead and Lambeau are very awesome.  That said, my younger brother who has been with me to all five of those stadiums at least once, and whose opinion I trust on matters of sports stadiums and arenas, says that Heinz is the best of them all.  I hear equally awesome things about PNC.
