Who has the best stadium in the NFL?

Recommended Posts

Honest question. If the Bills were to build a new stadium and the stars align in our favor, which NFL stadium would you hope the Bills emulate?

This would be a good poll question. A number of Bill's fans travel to other stadiums.  Most of us just see what's on TV.

There's a fictional stadium on madden, where the dome is completely glass. Its like a glass bowl overtop the stadium. I want the bills to build that. If the Chicago game is an indication of anything, that if the weather is nice, the stadium will be full, even for a 2-6 teams.

I’ve maybe been to about 1/3rd of them. The new Atlanta stadium is far and away the nicest that I’ve been to. I haven’t been to Jerry World yet though (next season). 

 

In in terms of the model for the Bills Lucas Oil seems to be the most practical.

The glare from that glass would be insane.   Not to mention the shadows at 1pm games.  I like consistent light all over the field.

The Mercedes Benz dome in Atlanta is incredible. But not Buffalo. To me, Lucas Oil Field is exactly what Buffalo needs. From the outside, it speaks to the history of the city, the grind and grit. The dome in Atlanta is too flashy for a city like Buffalo.

I've been to the Superdome, Jerry World, Nashville, Jacksonville, Houston and Tampa when the Bills have been there. Dallas is by far the nicest of those but Tennessee would be a good copy for the Bills. It's a nice, basic stadium with a few amenities but not over the top like Dallas.

Detroit's stadium looks really nice to me.   It looks like the fans are right on top of the field, maybe just an optical illusion but that's a great looking venue.

I know people love the outdoor stadium for nostalgia but it would be a mistake if they didnt build a domed stadium next time around. Exactly like you said, even if the team is bad it gives people something to do and during winter it will be an escape from the cold.

 

As much as people want to believe it, the cold/snow in December does not help us at all. Sure maybe teams from the south arent used to it but neither are most of our players and it puts both teams at a disadvantage. It also is a massive deterrent to a fanbase that is one of the smallest in the NFL.

Oh how fun it is to dream! I don't mean to be a Gloomy Gus but imagine the cost of a ticket, cost of concessions, cost of parking, cost of apparel etc. to offset the cost of a stadium. Then add in the increase in taxes for everyone. The Pegula's aren't footing the bill. Neither is New York State. I'd love to see it happen and I hope somehow it becomes a reality but I think there's a better chance the team moves. There's a reason why there's no real plans to build a new stadium when the NFL has made it clear the Bills need one to be viable in the future. There's not enough money to make it happen! Anyone ever stop to wonder why the Bills are the only team in NY State and playing in an outdated stadium? Anyone know how much the Yankees and Mets tickets went up in price after their new stadiums opened?

This is about the dome stadium N.Y. and Erie County can afford:

.....and given how bad the Bills are, about what they deserve.

 

This is what most Bills games seem like by the time they end:

If it were free, I'm all for a domed stadium. Jerry World or Atlanta, go big.

 

If "Other People's Money" is not involved, I say repaint the Cap.

Been to a number, the ones that the Bills should follow, which is simple yet functional are Cleveland, New England, or Seattle. All older style, open (cheaper option) that have the suites that Jerry Skeletor Jones requires from owners regardless if their market can bear it, but also being what normal paying fans want.... good sight lines, good concourses, easy in and out. 

 

Keep the one we have. Pushing a new stadium for this garbage product and asking for taxpayer handouts is going to drive people away and I can't see a net gain in profit for the team.

I said if the stars align, this is not about your crappy "reality" that may or may not even be the truth in the end afterall. This is about Terry Pegula leaving his mark on the world and building a state of the art stadium in Buffalo. I'm tired of people taking the most negative outcome and pushing it as reality. How often do your worst dreams come true?

Yeah, wanting a new stadium in Buffalo makes me a Zero. We could always stay at New Era field until the stadium falls apart we get moved, that'd make me a real winner then.

Minnesota, but too rich for the area I think.

 

Lucas Oil in Indy is what we should be looking for..something like that.

It wasn't always that way. Buffalo players used to ride snowmobiles, hunt, and sleep on their porches in T shirts. Raiders 51-3 baby. Today they are kitties.

No. We all want a new stadium. What makes you a zero is posting on an internet forum and then getting upset because a reply doesn't fit your desires. If you want nothing but responses that fit your idea of a proper response, then you should start your own forum, make it private and provide rules to your membership that if someone makes a post that you don't like, you will blow a gasket. You really need to lighten up. It's the Internet!

For an old curmudgeon like me, I loved Lambeau. I mean criminy were two rows from the top and sight lines were like the clubs. The concourses were awesome and wide and plenty of space.

 

Being a realist, I also understand a roof of some kind is prolly a have to have, not a nice to have.

 

So if we could build a Lambeau type field, a big bowl with bench seating, nicer clubs for the swells to sit in up top..and stick a retractable see-through roof on that sucker I am all in.
