This is just lazy and unimaginative.
It looks just like pre-renovation Yankee Stadium on the outside, which is exacty what they were trying to do.

Discussing things in a "civil manner" would involve you not whining and bitching about how much any stadium except Safeco sucks.

Clearly you know nothing about stadiums. I really don't know why you're on this thread.

I disagree. The old pre-renovation Yankee Stadium and even the post-renovation Yankee Stadium (1976-2008) looked better, the escalator pods notwithstanding, and were not similar to Yankee Mallpark. I loved the cathedral style windows that Yankee Stadium had on the loge level. Yankee Stadium had so much more detail in its facade than the current building.
Yankee Mallpark, to me, is not attractive. I hate how the limestone abruptly stops as the stadium curves revealing just a blank gray wall. The entire setup of the OF is gross. The ugly CF restaurant, the high billboard style scoreboard that does its best in hiding the fact that it's located in a less visually appealing Bronx neighborhood. I didn't say it's the ugliest stadium ever, but I do find it to be ugly.
Let's be mindful that this forum is about discussing stadiums and arenas and nothing else.

I'll admit, there's some similarity, but the old one, including after the '70's renovation was more ornate and was blessed with detail the new one only wish it possessed, IMO.

This is futile, I know, but yeah, I disagree. Coming from a country whose largest stadium seats less than 20,000, the Wembley Stadium is already a Cathedral ( by our standards). Hehe. The British are lucky.

Yankee Mallpark's tapered stands make me depressed. Monument Park has the same dreary ambience as a dark alley. So much to dislike about the place. What a missed opportunity by the firm formerly known as HOK.

I was going to put a pic of Marvin Lee Stadium in Trinidad after seeing it in the CONCACAF Champions League but I see it was already done in this thread. What a horrible little stadium. It literally makes no sense.



Edit. Hell, I'll put in another pic.

Well, technically you said forum, as stated below.

I wouldn't call the Dutch ones ugly, just modest.

Id' echo that most stadiums in the CFL could use a real retrofit, although I never realized that the stadiums in Regina and Ottawa were that bad. Yikes. Hopefully the new ones will be better then their predecessors' (especially Ottawa...nothing says "dont' drink!" like that much of a plunge to ground level.)

That being said, the stadium that the Alouettes play at seems pretty classy, even if it's lone competition is the Big Owe.

i like the way the away stand is called 'the untouchables'

maybe they should rename it to 'the un-usable'

Haha, that's an old pic. They put the shirt sponsor up there. That's the stand they give to the Glasgow teams fans when they play them.

It does look extremely weird though, the pitch there is awful and I suspect that massive stand has something to do with it. You could argue that the state of the pitch was one (of many) reasons Gretna went bust.
