Good news is looks like excellent sightlines from every section.
Thats the point.
Good sightlines and a showcase, innovative stadium in which we can be proud and invested for the next decade are not mutually exclusive.
Why isn't it a showcase...because it doesn't look like a space age egg? I think you're COMPLETELY missing the point. This will be a state of the art facility...it just won't look like something Apple would build.
lol...its like the PC vs Apple argument for me. ;-)
I never said it had to be a space age egg or giant snowplow. I would just like to see a bit more than an open air standard coliseum with a Marriott hotel of luxury suites planted closely on one side.
And it does mean something. It is not a coincidence that the Seahawks latest run coincides with Quest field opening in 2002. I lived in Seattle and the look, feel and quality of the stadium there contributed to the level of fan investment in the team. There was ownership there, and the net result was a very loud stadium that makes life hell on opposing teams.
So it isn't just a matter of aesthetics -- it directly represents our connectedness and identification with our team. This bland stadium creates no vision or passion in and of itself IMO and that is undefendable.
