how are they going to build it without interrupting the season?

it overlaps Busch Stadium
The construction teams will do all the ground work and parts of the stadium that do not overlap first. Then, after 2004 ends with a World Series celebration they start demolishing the parts that do overlap. I think then they plan on playing 2005 in a busted up Busch and then in a partially finished new Busch. 2006 rolls around with another win and the new stadium is done. Then the plan for the old stadium is to knock the rest down and build condos that overlook the new stadium. *I think* I read this about 6 months ago and I assuming that it is still the plan. I think the new Cincinanati stadium was built the same way. :cheers:

Great Pics and Thread
Most of the big stadiums are College Stadiums where the best of the game of football is played and most of the smaller stadiums are from the NFL

I think this is a international forum, for a better understanding it s better to call Fottball (=soccer) as Football and American Football as American Football. Without this "international" calling system we talk not from the same if we say here "Football". It s the same sense of decency to speak here english or at least to try it in this international forum part and not to talk e.g. in German with you.
Maybe for some Americans it s difficult to understand and respect other systems than them own.

In the U.S.A. football is football & that boring sport in which they kick a ball around is soccer. The thread is about the U.S.A. if you didn't read the title.

Ha ok, so A) Football should be the game where you use your feet!
B) what can be more boring than 20 seconds of play and 5 mins of adverts for 5 hours?
and C) Football is the most popular sport in the world! American football does not come anywhere close

so think before you get into your one dimensional US Centric mindset!

And the funny thing about American Football: its Rugby, but with:

a) Lots of breaks to regain energy
b) Lots of padding, helmets and the like to ensure no actual contact and to ensure mummy's boy doesn't get hurt

On another note, I don't need to repeat what the enlightened JacobRit said other than that nobody in the wide world who is sane watches NFL or any other anally retentive American sport - now that is funny :lol:

The great thing about that is we dont care what you think or say because we are not here to please you or cater to you.
Funny, i have talked to many rugby players that has played Football and they say Football is about as physical if not more than rugby. You see what you see on tv and you think hey this is like rugby yet you probably never played a minute of the game.

I've not played professional - I'm simply not that good. I play wing and have played for ooooohhhhh for around 7 years. Luckily the worst I've had happen to me, is studs in the eye, being winded on several occasions and having an unfortunate incident when my crown jewels came into contact with a right royal of a kick (all better now :lol:). I have however seen some awful acts - legs splitting right in two (ie a full clean snap with splintered bone ejecting out the leg - made half the team sick), awkward fulls with ankles twisting 90 degrees of more. My dad saw a guys eye pop out while he played, peoples faces being cut up like they had just been knifed. Its an awful game, but when played right it is a brilliant game.

The reason we disrespect your sport, is because you disrespect our sport by calling it soccer when its football. I dont call you a tossing loser do I - because you probably aint!!!!! So if you wanna be nice and not be the odd one out IN THE WHOLE WORLD then you really ought to understand where we are coming from.

What freaks me out is how some of these stadia have such large capacities with whole ends missing - I'm trying to imagine how large the above would be if it the side stands were continued all the way round to form a bowl...

Nick - association football ("soccer") is only "football" colloquially in the parts of the world where it's the dominant code of football. In most states in Australia "football" is Aussie Rules, in NSW and QLD it's rugby league, in New Zealand it's rugby union, in Ireland it's Gaelic football, in the USA it's gridiron, in Canada it's Canadian football etc. etc. Even in the UK you'll find entities like "Leicester Football Club" (rugby union) and "Hull F.C." (rugby league) which were founded before the rules of soccer were established...

Where I think you're coming from is the misguided belief that the code of football you follow is the only (or original) form of football, and North Americans and Australasians have "stolen" the game, unfortunately it just makes you look ignorant and intolerant... :)

AAAARGH!!! There is no "real" football - football is a generic term for ball games played on foot. This argument is akin to beef and pork fans arguing ownership of the word "meat"... :bash:
