MAN am I sick of the complaining about the stadium not being pretty enough.
I couldn't give 2 sh*ts about what the stadium looks like from outer space. I care what it looks like when I'm sitting in my seat watching a game. I care how easy it is to get a hot dog and how much of the game I'm going to miss if I make a run for the bathroom.
The stadium was designed the way it was to make it WIDE OPEN...exposed to the elements in a way few stadiums are. Ya know WHY they can do that? They can do it because we have some of the best weather in the world right here in the Bay Area. Almost never too hot. Never really cold. Perfect humidity.
The facade would block that open feeling. That's why they don't have one.
Those other stadiums you showed above are in freakin Denver (snow), Oakland (seriously?), Indianapolis (snow), Green Bay (snow) and North Carolina (snow).
