My goodness. A majority of these stadiums have atrocious names.

Very little thought was put into these rankings. In fact, in some cases, like the Bills stadium ranking, it appears no thought at all was put into the ranking other than commenting on the name of the new stadium and making a bad joke about the team still being bad.

No, really, it's true. Neopolitan butterflies.


You know it couldn't be upon the carcasses of our Minnesota Viking's dreams.


God, I hate the Packers. Yet, they have the bragging rights over us.

Please read my whole reply first. Yes FED EX sucks! But the location is fine and the area is ok.It was just a bad stadium from the start.Dan Snyder has always over inflated the prices there.

The turkey that wrote this has a right to his opinion which carries about as much weight with me as my last bit of flatulence (it floated upward and quickly dissipated).

I think the location was horrible, but I'd rather have Synder keep it there than come to Virginia and bring that congestion here. But if asked I would want the Skins at a updated RFK.

You DC guys should've gotten a load of Griffith Stadium.

I attended a Giants-Skins game in 1992 at RFK. Best atmosphere I have ever experienced at a football game. I was in a corner end zone seat when Brian Mitchell returned a punt for a touchdown, and he did a forward flip into the end zone. I thought he was going to flip right onto me, that is how close those seats in the corner of the end zone were to the actual field. After he scored, the bleachers that I was seated in were actually rocking up and down because the fans were that excited. I thought the stands were going to collapse. The fans and the atmosphere nowadays in FedEx, I would imagine, cannot approach what I felt and experienced during that game. The funny thing was that was the only score they had in that entire game as the Giants went on to win, 24-7.

Stadiums are too clean and sterile nowadays. I actually appreciate a little bit of grit and grime. I was too young to experience the old Cleveland Municipal Stadium but I'm pretty sure I would of absolutely loved it. Apparently you can't even stand in the Dawg Pound anymore.
