Can someone let me know, I have heard it is horrible to go see a game in.
What were they thinking when they built it?
What is it like to see a game in the dome?
I am from New Jersey and my girlfriends dad is a season ticket holder for the Jets so I have been to six games in the new stadium, I have to say it is seriously unimpressive. That stadium cost 1.6 billion dollars, and is 24 months old. Its very grey, it is cold in the north east in the winter but this place just makes you feel colder. When you try to go into the stadium it can take up to an hour, just to get from the ticket checkers to the escalators and he has the premium parking and field level seats. The place is MASSIVE, and it seems very corporate, it is very New York. It is not loud, and the upper deck is wayyyy to far from the field, the upper deck in the new stadium starts where the old stadium use to end, just to give you perspective. You could take old giants stadium and plop it in the center of the new one and the upper deck would be equal to the second level, Its crazy. I have a point here.
I was reading that one of the best stadiums in the NFL was actually one of the cheapest to build. Foxboro cost New England 320 million dollars and it is always mentioned as one of the best stadiums in the NFL. Why can't the city of St louis find a middle ground, something along the lines of Lucas Oil Stadium. I think the Rams should build something that is very heritage based, I like the Idea of a retractable roof. I think a brick exterior would go well with the midwest but then again I have never been to the city so I don't really know. To perform 400 million in renovation to the stadium during an offseason is unrealistic. It would likely take years to perform forcing the Rams to either play home games in a construction site. or play at another stadium. I would like to know what St Louisans would like to see in a brand spankin new stadium. because lets be honest, we are all delusional if we think the Rams are staying in STL without getting a new stadium.
So lets have an open discussion about what we would like to see in a new stadium. Something built for the Rams and the city of STL.
