Totally agree...BofA is a nice stadium, and it a wonderful place to watch a game--especially on a warm, sunny fall day when football first starts.

I also love how MetLife is ranked twice--at #13 and #14 for the Giants and Jets...

You would have loved Veteran's Stadium in Philadelphia then. I actually saw my first football game at Shea Stadium in New York when the Jets were destroyed by the Bengals in Joe Namath's last game. The memory of that game was it was below freezing and pipes broke resulting in raw sewage coming out of the bathroom. That place was a dump a little more than 10 years after it was built. Arrowhead in Kansas City a current example of an outdated stadium that is worth voyage. What a thrill it was to attend a game there a few years ago.


I actually did take on a Cleveland Indians game in their last season in Cleveland Municipal Stadium in 1993. You would have indeed loved it. Hockey, too, I saw the last Boston Bruins game in the Boston Garden when they played the New Jersey Devils in 1995. Same thing with the old Maple Leaf Gardens, I saw a game there in 1990, best single game experience of all time, with knowledgeable fans in an old arena.


Yes, I can really appreciate older stadiums. There seemed to be more of a blue collar element, whereby anyone could attend a game, regardless of income. Nowadays, the common man is priced out, so the entire experience is sanitized. I had more disposable income before I had kids, so I was able to take on these games, but nowadays, even if I had the money to attend, I wouldn't do it nearly as much.

I appreciate these comments as the average family cannot afford to attend sporting events with baseball still being somewhat affordable. This is probably a discussion for another thread or something already hashed over but wanted to acknowledge it.
