For me its neither. And why on earth is Atlanta even talking about a new stadium? Their stadium is pretty nice in a great location.

This explains why the new stadium is being built: Overview | New Atlanta Stadium and there is no more talking about it being built, it is actually under construction as we speak. It is being built right next door to the GA Dome!

Didn't see anything in the article about the GD being rundown, inadequate, too small, not enough bathrooms. Being built in the 90s is not old. Seems like such a waste. I can see replacing stadiums like RFK, Candlestick and Memorial stadium in Baltimore. Replacing the GD makes absolutely no sense.

I really don't like either. The designs are definitely interesting and unique, but both seem over the top for their purposes. I get wanting to stand out, but they're still football stadiums, a sport meant to be played outside (I don't like any of the indoor stadiums). For attracting Final Fours and Superbowls, they're great, as those are huge spectacles, more than just sports.

I prefer stadiums like Lambeau, the new Meadowlands, Centurylink, Soldier field... outdoors but great designs and/or history.

Gun to my head, I'd pick the Vikings...

Vikings Stadium
Quote:
On May 10, 2012, the Minnesota Legislature approved funding for a new Vikings stadium on that site. The project is projected to have a $975 million price tag, with the Vikings covering $477 million, the state covering $348 million, and $150 million covered by a hospitality tax in Minneapolis.

Falcons Stadium
Quote:
The Atlanta Falcons revealed Monday that the projected cost of their new downtown stadium has risen to $1.2 billion, a jump of $200 million from the $1 billion figure that the team long used as a ballpark estimate.

I think the GA Dome is fine quite honestly, but her days are numbered! They've already demolished two historic churches and closed MLK for site prep. The new stadium will sit directly adjacent to the GA Dome.

I was at the very first Falcons game played in the Georgia Dome -- in 1992. I covered the fan angle for a Metro ATL newspaper. The highlight was crawling out, on my hands and knees, with our photographer onto the catwalk over the center of the field, to take a birds-eye, fish-angle lens view of the packed stadium. I will never forget that day. I was in awe. IMO, the a Georgia Dome remains the finest indoor sports facility ever built -- most certainly for the sport of football. It has hosted two Super Bowls, the Olympics, more than two dozen CFBS bowl games (including the Sugar Bowl and CFA Peach Bowl) and countless SEC and ACC games, as well as the NCAA Men's Final Four (three times), the NCAA Women's Final Four (once), the Georgia High School Football Championships, and innumerable major concerts, religious crusades, marching band competitions, conventions, and movie shoots. Quite frankly, the Georgia Dome is one of the best economic investments the state of Georgia ever made. I will cry on the day its walls are imploded.

Atlanta is a strange city. They're going to be demolishing a perfectly viable sports facility the Georgia Dome and replacing it with a taxpayer subsidized, lower capacity, newer facility that isn't needed (despite all of the BS put out by the Falcons).
