Nope, you just have two fan bases totally giddy in love with their stadium and in love with the fact that because the teams are sharing the stadium the fans are saving so much money because the teams kept ticket prices so low.
SAR you are right. You can't find even one fan of either team who would think anything negative at all about glorious Met Life Stadium.
Why do we care what the stadium cost our owners?
What, you think we'd be paying less
if the stadium cost half as much to build? Like they'd pass that savings back to us
instead of lining their pockets with the profits? And you're the big advocate of a solo Jets stadium in New York. You know how much we'd have been paying then
Club seats were inevitable. PSL's were inevitable. A shared stadium kept 43,000 PSL seats affordable, allowed 27,000 upper deck seats to have no PSL at all. That's 70,000 seats that are quite affordable, the vast majority averaging the same $125 we'd been paying in the old place, upper deck seats now as low as $50. A dozen different pricing zones allowing anyone to afford something, opening the door to new fans who used to have to pay scalpers a lot more just to get in the door.
I've been to Gillette Stadium, Arrowhead Stadium, Qualcomm Stadium, Dolphins Stadium, Jaguars Stadium, Lucas Oil Stadium, and even Lambeau Field and they're all the same. A concrete bowl with drab grey interiors. The outside of these things, just non-descript concrete slabs or some fake roman columns. On gamedays, the seating areas all have color-coded stadium walls, Rings Of Honor, endzone art, LED screens, ribbon boards. In other words, the same stuff we have now.
One can argue that MetLife with its metal louvers more closely resembles the skyscrapers and architecture of the city it represents than any other stadium in the NFL. I don't recall the Romans storming the cities of Chicago and Indianapolis or the Space Aliens invading Arizona, Dallas, or New Orleans. I can see those
fans having something legitimate to complain about.
None of your arguments work. Stop arguing.
