Not as great as it used to be...but Soldier Field, even though it looks like a UFO landed on top of the old one...

This thread is just going to get people upset. There are a ton of awesome stadiums in this league with unique features. I really refuse to comment about which one is the best. It is not fair to do either.

I really like how Seattles looks (never been there).

Yes, this is going to come off homer but Paul Brown Stadium is an amazing stadium.

It was the only football stadium to make the top 150 for the best architecture in the United States (came in 101)

Arizonas stadium is the best IMO. If you want to know which has the best gameday feel? Probably K.C. with all the barbQ smells and loudness. Packers are up there and could easily push for #1 with there "impossible to ever get a gameday ticket" history.

I went to Arrowhead last season to see the Ravens vs. Chiefs, and its a nice stadium, but the talk of it being the loudest stadium in the NFL is far from the truth. Maybe it was that we were dominatin the game so nothing really to cheer for, but even at the opening kickoff it didnt compare to the noise M & T Bank makes.

FeDex is just big... As a stadium and people that attend the games I don't like it. Too many cooperate business type people go.

Ravens (M&T Bank? They always change the name lol) stadium is nice, I've been a few times.

I never got to go to a game at RFK, but from the looks of it, it was pure craziness. You could feel and see the lower level seats rocking back and forth from the sound. I know theres a vid of it, lemme try to find.

Reliant (http://www.selenaforever.com/images2/Reliant.jpg)

The Cardinals stadium is probably the nicest (obviously the newest) but the outside is quite ugly IMO. If you ever make it down to Houston for one reason or the other, you have to check out Reliant. I'm still in awe everytime I drive by it.

I think the new Giants/Jets stadium is going to be the most expensive stadium in the world. Don't know how they are pulling off that feat without a roof, since the roof normally costs a lot. It better be unbelievable if it is going to be that expensive without a roof.

That being said, I really like Lincoln Financial Field and it pains me to say it.

Cleveland Municipal Stadium was awesome. It was run-down, at least 40 years behind on maintenance. There were about 30,000 obstructed view seats. The plumbing system leaked so you could smell and see piss on the ground even outside of the restrooms, which there were only like 4 of. Plus, the seating was designed so that you would be cold and wet regardless of whether it was December or September...and it always sold out.

Now we've gone soft and have the nice, clean, new Cleveland Browns Stadium.

I HATE indoor stadiums. Sure they're really nice but they are so stale. I love outdoor stadiums a lot more. Places like Arizona's, Detroit's, Houston's, and the rest of them are all very cool to look at but I don't put them up with these:

- Lambeau Field: The most historic stadium in the NFL. I really want to go there sometime and see a Bears - Packers Game.

- Soldier Field: Well I mean for obvious reasons but it's a great place to see a game. Gorgeous on the inside and I like how they kept up the pillars on the outside. Sure it's like a spaceship but great place to watch a game.

I couldn't agree more, I've lived my whole life in the Cleveland area and I don't like the new stadium at all. It's a fine place to watch a game but it has absolutely no character. For a team like the Browns and a city like Cleveland that's unfortunate.

The old Municipal was teeeeeerrrrrrrible though. Oh man...so many seats that were directly behind poles. An even worse place to watch baseball.

i loved invesco stadium even though it was raining on me at just above freezing. that is a stadium that gets loud and can really rattle a QB


on a side note i really also like the new stadium at Stanford. every seat in there is a great view, too bad you have to watch Stanford play.

Fedex sucks, and the fans there suck, no intensity or team loyalty, RFK was the best ever, a madhouse, I went there as a kid and will never forget.

M&T Bank Stadium is nice too, went there couple of years ago.

Probably the worst stadium in football, no offence, but the atmosphere is great, and the tailgaiting is great.

I never did either but my dad told me it was legendary. It would rock back and forth! I got to see a Nats game there though, but a baseball game doesnt generate any noise

it was great when i went there (mostly cuz Kampman and the D killed Jackson) but also if you get cold you can go inside the atrium which was pretty cool, but still iasnt as great as freezing your bum off.

Can't agree more that RFK was far superior to Fedex. RFK had that mystique of a football stadium whereas Fedex seems like a corporate meeting place for businessmen. Obviously my favorite is M & T Bank because I'm there so often but I would like to go to the Cardinals one and Gillette one day.

The Ralph in Buffalo is sooo underrated right now. Anytime going to Buffalo in late december or a playoff game, cold weather, fans like you dont believe. The Ralph is almost a crap sack of a stadium, but the fans, tailgating, atmosphere is AMAZING.

There was a report out previously, that had the top 3 in order as

1. Kansas City
2. Green Bay
3. Buffalo

I believe it.

If you're into history than I don't know how you can't choose Lambeau. Personally i'm not really into the history of stadiums but I prefer the newer state-of-the-art stadiums, i.e Arizona's. But still Lambeau's great.
