    Maybe I am more traditional but Football should be outdoors. I far and away prefer the Niners stadium to that Oculus crap.

    Ravens stadium will eventually be due for some renovations but a complete rebuild of a facility that is far from a piece of crap (M&T) is silly. A facelift and some amenities I can get on board with in a few years if economically things are better

    Um, I think you have your Lanna stadia confoozled:
    Centennial Olympic Stadium was the 85,000-seat main stadium of the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta....After the Olympics and Paralympics, it was reconstructed into the baseball-specific Turner Field.
    Where the Falcons play is 4 years older: "Not only is the Georgia Dome the home stadium for the NFL's Atlanta Falcons football team, the Georgia Dome has hosted some of the sporting world's most exciting athletic events since opening in 1992."

    I don't think there is anything wrong with M&T Bank Stadium, but in this crazy "gotta keep up with the Jerry Jones'" world, do you think it is going to be time to build a new stadium for the Ravens anytime soon?
    Why do we have to keep up with The Gloryholer?

    I don't think the Ravens need to, but a lot of times owners see one team get a new stadium they want new stadiums. Luckily I don't think Steve B. is one of those types of owners, but who knows?


    ARE YOU NOT ENTERTAINED?!

    I still think Seattle has the best stadium in the league.

    I think ground level images of architectural plans are more important than aerial shots, and the ground level shots of the pantheon plans, in my opinion, are rather attractive and not nearly as outrageous as the aerial view, which would only be seen from airplanes and from blimp shots during commercial breaks. It reminds me of the Brown Center at MICA, only on a much larger scale. pantheon.jpg
    "A lot" is a two word expression denoting a great deal or greatly, as in "I like sunshine a lot." "Alot" is a lovable imaginary grammar monster. You can love a lot; you can love an alot; you can love alots a lot; but they are not the same thing.

    Re: Over the Top Stadium designs

    I don't like either one of 'em -- bah humbug! I miss Memorial Stadium! Granted, even I recognize there's limits on revenue in a place like that -- you can't charge those atrocious prices and expect people to sit on cold, sticky aluminum. But that just means the teams wouldn't make as much, if everybody still had stadiums like that. You know what though? There'd still be pro football and we'd still love it. Not sure I like the direction this is all going. Carry on.
    No one likes us, and we don't care.

    I have to say, I like the 49ers stadium more than either of the Falcons ones.

    Just something about a simple, classic looking stadium...focus on the football, not the aesthetics.

    As someone mentioned before, it's about making the most money possible.

    Whether fans in Bmore want to admit it or not, either retrofitting or a new stadium will be needed if we hope to compete. Yes, it is indeed about keeping up with The Jones'. This is an huge part of the Ravens being the franchise that is so admired.

    We have a very "cookie cutter" type stadium. We did get the new scoreboards and HDTV's in the concourses. That's a good start.

    I would love to have a stadium like Reliant Stadium in Bmore. For me, that's the perfect football stadium. There isn't a thing about that stadium I don't love (well, besides the team that calls it home). Sight lines, comfort, ease of entrance and egress, concessions, playing surface, retractable roof, sound system, etc. are all top notch.

    The open concourse is a key thing when I think about the new stadiums.

    It's nice but it would be a lot better if it were downtown instead of out on the beltway (or whatever you call it down there). Also, I sat in the upper end zone there one time and was staring at the roof structure. So not all the site lines there are great either.

    It is pretty funny when you think about how far stadium designs have come since the 70's. The Astrodome was supposed to be one of the modern marvels or whatever, but sitting next to Reliant it looks like a dog pile...

    Rinse. Lather. Repeat.

    Nothing wrong with M&T, it's not going anywhere anytime soon. Next.
