I know alot of people think that....but I think your just too used to seeing the new Space Age stuff in Dallas and Phoenix.

Ya know what...we don't NEED that stuff. Phoenix is the desert and Dallas is humid as hell.

The best part about a stadium in Nor Cal is the Weather.

I like this stadium alot because it puts whats most important first...Fan Experience...not looking pretty in pictures and paintings.

Ya know what pretty? A full stadium and the Niners bound to the Bay Area for another 30 or 40 years.

I respect your opinion and You have some valid points. But I still think this is a really ugly design. I've been in many many stadiums around the world (since I am an avid soccer fan), but this one is just too plain for me. We live in a world class area with some of the most sophisticated people. We deserve better than this plain design.

That's a bit of a stretch. It is definitely better looking than that and on top of that, those drawings are of a *naked* stadium (no banners, lights, props, ect.) and the Stanford stadium is during a live game.

Really, no comparison at all.

Stanfords actually looks ALOT smaller too.

Jokes on you all. The new stadium design was created by a high schooler using Madden's EA "Stadium Creator" feature.

LOL!!! I meant to say "someone used a .warz version of AutoCAD 14".

I like the new stdium. I think to many people are obsessed with the whole retractible roof thing.

For stadium and fan purposes its actually a great design. All the seats have great vantage points and there doesn't seem to be any bad seats. Its designed with the fans in mind.

Second, Cali has some of the best whether in the country and during playoff time, the muggy weather becomes a homefield advantage. Why would you want to take that away by putting a retractible roof on the thing.

Only problem i have with the stadium is the exterior. Its not very aesthetically pleasing. Hopefully its just the computer design and not a finish product. Hopefully they improve on the exterior design.

is it going to be loud like the other stadiums? and for it being right next to the headquaters it's awesome, i live in florida and i work right next to the bucs stadium and there headquaters is right next to the stadium and i make the area look great.
like some one said, we should just play at Stanford... I think we'd save lots and lots of monies.

I'm pretty sure that's the final design. This design was well detailed in their proposal to the city, so....

but whtvr, i hope ur right

I'm sure that's close to the final design as far as the footprint and general layout, but they have at least a year left to tweak the jewlrey and make it look less . . . .

For instance they could tweak the design by adding an overhang to the upperdeck for not a ton of relative extra cost and make a major aesthetic upgrade. Plus I'm sure there'll be a ring of honor type of exhibit among other bells and whistles. And for my money I'd prefer to see a more oval shaped field and not so many straight lines.

There's time to tweak.
Like I said earlier, it just looks like a big college stadium. I hope they put some more style and substance in it when built. If it's built that is. The design isn't bad, it just looks bland and with no flavor to it. A little stylistic modification can go a looooooong way.

Exactly how i feel as well.

Not blown away, but not overly disappointed either.

As long as they win championships I don't care where they play as long as it's in the Bay Area. They can even play in the middle of the Castro district. hahahahaha

so what, it'll still be the best value.
