I don't get all the love for Cowboys Stadium. It's farking huge, but that's about it. Maybe it's great if you're one of the 1% and get to experience the luxury suite areas. But for the normal seating areas I was not impressed.

/That's just my opinion
//Plus $60, $80 and $100 parking is just obnoxious.

I still think one of the great blessings in my life was that I was born and raised not far from Lambeau field.

I miss it terribly.

Going back home either this season or next and catching at least one game there with dad. I haven't been there since '96.

Love the Pack or hate them, Lambeau is simply a unique bit of history in modern sports that everyone should try at least once in your life. Even the visiting team fans get treated pretty well.

OMFG.  I guess everything really is bigger in Texas.

Is there any public transit at all that stops at that monstrosity, or did Jerry Jones' billion-dollar fleecing of area citizens include a provision to ensure that asshole gets even more money?  Maybe seeing a Cowboys game is like the Hajj: since you only do it once in your life, it doesn't matter how much it costs.

Nope: not a single public transport option as far as I know. I saw some of the nearby hotels and restaurants ran shuttle buses.

That's my view. Go once and be done with it.

mjohnson71: Cepheus Crater:  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.

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.


Believe me, I'm in the minority opinion group here in Seattle, most fans love it.  I don't mind the layout of the seating, you really are close to the action, however, both ends are completely open which makes it akin to sitting in a 300 mph wind storm on blustery, rainy days.  The two open ends accelerate the already howling banshee gails coming off the Sound.  Plus, the previously mentioned Small World inspired structure at the north end is absolutely silly looking.

This is definitely true. Most people I know love the Clink, myself included. I think it's a neat design and it sits well next to Safeco. From the ferries it provides a pretty cool anchor to the downtown skyline. I love seeing the arches on top light up at night. It gets farking loud in there too. And they pack roughly double the amount of people into Seahawks games as they do for Sounders games.

Although, interesting fact about our stadium is you'll hear three different names for it from most residents since it went through multiple name changes. Generally you can tell their age by what they call the stadium.

Some call it Seahawks Stadium - the First name. Some call it Qwest, and the current name is the Clink after Century Link. Of course some people also call it the New Kingdome but that's more in jest.

Bonzo_1116: No love for our local tribute to the miracle that is concrete?

/Utterly unsursprised


This thread made me realize that the only active use NFL stadiums I've even seen in person (and not from a landing plane) are The Q, Rich Stadium, Candlestick, whatever that place the Panthers party is called, and that not-Three-Rivers in Pittsburgh.

I've only attended the first two, so I have no idea what a quality stadium is like.

Oh, forgot Qwest Field. Looks good, never been inside, but the roof over the Amtrak tracks is neat.

Steve Largent Stadium would have been my emotional choice...

MetLife is ugly on the outside and worse on the inside.

Everbank Field will be on the list next year when our ultra jumbotrons, cabanas, and swimming pools are installed.
