I personally love the way Reliant Stadium look from outside though I've never been there. It just looks nice

As hardcore of a Pack fan, and football fan, I've never been to a game. Will be going to my first game at Lambeau Field the 23rd of December. I've been to Lambeau Field before and have taken the tour and went through the motions there but never for a game. Also stopped at Lucas Oil Field on a road trip. Was on my way back from Kentucky and had to go right through Indianapolis so decided to stop and check it out. Unfortunately they weren't running tours that day but from the outside and from the pro shop, it looks beautiful. That's my very limited experience for NFL venues.

I went to Altell stadium when it was called that maybe 10 times for football games. It was a miserable experience to be honest. The stadium is nice but going to games when you're not interested in either team was dumb. The seats were great and I was taking a different person each time so that part of it was ok. Jaguar fans were spoiled back then and hearing them complain about Fred Taylor and Mark Brunell was nauseating.

I agree. It just looks so out of date and trashy compare to other stadiums. I have not personally been inside Candlestick or Oakland's stadium, but I've gotten a good view from the outside when I go to the bay area. Damn Californians litter too damn much. Some say Metrodome sucks, but I've been to Metrodome and its better than California stadiums that I've seen. The location of Metrodome is pretty nice too.

It's not as bad as people say but I didn't find it that great either.

Qualcomm is pretty nice to be fair.

I've only been to Mile High Stadium, but IMO the biggest upsides is that it's pretty clean, its a modern design, and there doesn't seem to be a bad seat anywhere (I've sat everywhere around it). The stadium has sold out each game since it has been built so there is always tons of fans in it which make for a good atmosphere.

That being said, it doesn't seem all that unique to me. It would be a lot better if they had an expanded venue around, since the area around the stadium isn't the best even though it's in downtown Denver and minutes away from Coors Field and the Pepsi Center. They could make the area so much more exciting..

Not really. Personally it was the worst stadium I've ever been to. It's just incredibly outdated and quite frankly a dump. There was nothing interesting about the stadium really, incredibly plain, can't think of a single thing that stood out. The technology suggested that I was in the <80s. Although I will say the tailgating was pretty cool, it was massive.

i thought the tailgating atmosphere was below average. not to mention no bars or places around for people to go before or after.

the trolly (although crowded after games) is very convenient

If you came to Pittsburgh and didn't have Primanti's, your trip was a complete failure.


Even though the food there is extremely overrated, its definitely somewhere people who visit Pittsburgh should at least try.

I liked it a lot to, good location, people, places around it. I found during fourth quarter my ears were going to fall off though. The weather was December rain so it might have ruined it slightly for me.

That definitely sucks. My season tickets are seats just under the jumbotron in the South endzone so we are safe from rain no matter what Very Happy You should come to a game in October, they are much better.
