What Is Your Favorite NFL Venue?

For you NFL fans, what NFL venue takes the cake? Here is a rundown of all the NFL stadiums I have been to:

Sun Devil Stadium--A pretty bad pro stadium. Also used by ASU. Right below one of the approaches to Sky Harbor is about the only cool thing. I heard the new stadium they are building is going to be awesome.

Jack Murphy (or whatever they call it now)- built for both baseball and football, used only by the Chargers now. Decent sight lines, awesome city travel to a game for.

Network Associates, Oakland- A fitting dump for the team that plays there. Sight lines are horrible. Only good thing is that BART runs right up to the dump that Al built.

Texas Stadium- Pretty bad. Jerrry Jones is getting a new stadium soon, which is good, because this place has got to go.

Reliant Field- Second best stadium in the league. Spotless. Best part is while standing in line for a beer, you can watch the game live.

Paul Brown Stadium- Super nice, and probably pretty loud now that the Bengals are decent. All the seats are centered towards midfield, which is good.

Alltel Stadium- Decent but dated. Most fairweather fans in the league. This team will be moving to LA in the near future I predict.

Astrodome- Well, not really doing well right now, but it was eventually going to get replaced anyway. Smelled bad (probably smells worse now).

Dolphin Stadium- Seats are centered to the yard line, and not to the center of the field, which causes a headache towards the end of the game.

Heinz Field- Awesome field, awesome fans. Intense as all get out. The giant Ketchup bottle is cool. Place shakes when the fans get loud

Lambeau Field- The NFL's shrine. The place reeks of history, and the fans are super polite. Take off, eh?

Georgia Dome- Dome's are domes. Not much personality, but this one is BIG.

And the best stadium in the league, housing the best fans is none other than Mile High Stadium in Denver. Load, roomy and modern.

Taken from club level about 2 hours after the game ended during the 5th quarter party,

Taken from my seats at the game, as you can see, Moss got screwed out of that touchdown.

Taken on club level, a beautiful area of the stadium that not too many fans get to go to unless they have club level seats, or a V.I.P pass


So without a doubt FedEx Field. It is the largest stadium in the N.F.L 90,000.00+ seats , There is a 30 plus year waiting list to get season tickets. Just a overall beautiful stadium. These shots were taken this past Sunday.

I do not know why the second shot above is not coming in full size, in the shot you can clearly see both feet are down and the ball is in his hands, but they ruled it no touchdown. Oh well, we scored on the next play. Denver, your next.

Of the ones that I've been to, I'd say Alltel Stadium in Jacksonville is the best one...I'm going to a game at Invesco Field @ Mile High in a few weeks, looking forward to that, pretty much everyone Ive talked to says its a great place...looks pretty nice from the outside...

We have you guys on Sunday. I think the score is going to be low. Skins defense is pretty good.

Only been in two-and they've sat on the same spot.

This one:



And this one:



The first one, old Cleveland Municipal Stadium was a dump by the time it was done: terrible site lines, pillars in the way, but it had an aura about it, it was loud as all hell when the crowd was roaring-it had character.

The second one, the new Cleveland Browns Stadium, is a great place to watch football-far better in every aspect from the old ballpark except one: it doesn't have the character or the personality of the old one. Maybe that's because some of the best teams in NFL history called Municpal home, while there hasn't been much good football played at the new one.

That place was bad. You could tell on TV. Pretty cool when the Dawg Pound would throw dog bones out onto the field.

Only been to three:

Soldier Field (old): Not that great of a stadium, but there was a lot of history in the place. The great Bears teams of the '80's played there. I'll be checking out the remodeled version this season.

Alltell: Saw quite a few Jaguars games here, during the time when the team was regularly in the playoffs. Got to go to their first ever MNF game...that was a blast. It's a pretty decent stadium, no complaints.

Edward Jones Dome: Caught a Rams-Bengals game here a couple of years ago. Not a bad place, but it is a dome so it loses points there. Not as loud as my friend was telling me it was, but then again it was a regular season game against the Bungles, so how loud was it going to get?  Wink

The Giants and Jets agreed last week to build a brand new stadium in the Meadowlands they will jointly own, it will replace Giant's stadium and the name of the new stadium will be sold to the highest bidder.

It will be the only jointly owned NFL stadium, the NFL is going to contribute up to $300 Million for a retractable roof or to build supports to enable a temporary roof to be built for events like the Super Bowl.

The deal also means the Jets are moving their headquarters and practice facilities to Northern New Jersey, the stadium should be open by the 2009 season. The project includes the $800 Million Dollar Stadium, a $150 Million dollar NJ Transit rail station adjacent to the station connecting with NY Penn, Rockland and Orange County NY aswell as 11 NJ Transit rail lines. It will also be connected to Xanadu the $1 Billion Dollar entertainment complex already under construction.

Trivia question about the venues.

Someone told me that all of the official NFL fields are on a North/South (so that no team was playing into the sun, on old rule from the "out door" days) axis except for one, is this true?

My buddy told me that when Ford Field in Detroit was built, they were given an exemption to this rule.

For those who don't know Ford Field was built in Downtown Detroit on the site of the old Hudson's department store warehouse, and portions of the old building were incorporated into the new structure. He said because of the geography and architecture, they were allowed an east/west axis.

Anyone know if this is true?

With the exception of the burning river, I'd have thought you were talking about Filthydelphia.

After all, the "Linc" picks up the proud tradition of the old Vet by having a prison and court built into the stadium.

Actually Slider, I'm sorry to report that Eagles Court (the term for the in-stadium courtroom) has been disbanded in the Linc...although apparently the jail cells are still there should they wish to bring Judge McCaffery back for some swift justice...

You also get an amazing view of downtown, and the rivers. Save time on parking and take the river boat over, the Gateway Clipper.

Heinz Field no doubt! The ketchup bottles tilt and "dump" ketchup on the jumbotron when they make it to the red zone. Everyone in Pittsburgh hates it. It would be cool if it was like a molten steel laddle or something, but oh well. Their names on the building.
