No it doesn't. There might be a running track. But non of the seats provide a restricted view.

Not the best examples. But still way way better than anything you got over there.

Then place your bid and see which way the wind blows. You're full of talk but I don't see that bid, cupcake.

You obviously don't want America to get the bid, that much as clear. But America's bid is looking pretty good right now, so you're just going to have to get over yourself and deal with it. If you don't like it, don't come.

BTW, atmosphere is created by the people in the seats, not the physical ground itself. If atmosphere to you is singing, being seated in an American football stadium doesn't preclude one from singing. And for your information, the reason we don't sing in American sports is that we have timeouts. Our sports don't have 45 minutes of uninterrupted play. It's just a different sporting culture here, not good or bad, just different.

And explain to me what a 'restricted' view is. How exactly do our NFL stadiums provide restricted views?

Nor will the seats in a 2022 USA bid.

The current world cup has no shortage of tarped off seats due to obstructed views.

I don't think there will be a major problem with adapting a stadium to FIFA world cup field requirements. As you said, it is worth hosting. Dallas and NY may prove to be challenge due to their field boxes, maybe?

The one thing that stood out for me while observing the impressive list of venues a few pages back was the current FIFA requirement that every stadium needs to be partially roofed for VIP's. How will that go down in places like Denver, NY, Miami etc?

Then again, you may not have to worry too much as FIFA change their 'requirements' to suit.

100% roof coverage of the stands was a FIFA prerequisite for the WC 2006 in Germany!
We had no problems to fullfill this..........(nor will any other country in Europe bidding for a future WC!)

I'm sure FIFA will accept all this gridiron stadiums in the name of a big profit!
For the europeans a world cup is a kind of "stadium developement fair", the most impressive Stadiums of the 2010 WC are designed by european architects.

I would like t see a WC in the US, but are you sure the US won't disapoint Fifa again like 1994?
The stadiums were packed, but a lack of atmosphere and no progress in the US Soccer (I hate this word for the game......)League!

Well it doesn't seem to matter with South Africa. Can you honestly say that the current South African and American stadiums are lacking in any way because not all of them a 100% roofed?

What is with the roof obsession some Europeans have, America has been building bigger and better stadiums longer than anyone, its a bit much telling them how to do it.

Isn't the Rose Bowl still a possible site? I would think there would be a stadium in Los Angeles whether it's the Rose Bowl or the new Los Angeles Stadium.

I don't get why LA need the Rose Bowl & Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.

Are either used?

Yes. USC plays at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum and UCLA plays at the Rose Bowl, and the Rose Bowl game of course.

Except for sunny Spain and Italy, the weather is always crappy in moldy ol' Europe so the FIFA "Fifis" are simply mirroring, projecting their own issues onto others as if the rest of the world has to exist by their blueprint. I mean seriously, 100% roofed stadiums? Haha! The 2014 Super Bowl will be in New Jersey, in an unroofed stadium, in February! I hope it's -20F: good football!
