I really do not understand how, after all the architech designs they looked over, they picked this pile of crap.

I still have to look at it every Sunday...

Im sure a lot of Cowboy fans can't afford to go there either, but at least they got a badass stadium.

so not only is the new stadium hella ugly, it wont be loud either.

I really think people are overlooking the fact that we will have the most lower bowl seats of any NFL stadium. Is it 70% of the seating is lower bowl? Thats why college stadiums generate so much noise, because its all coming close to the field. The noise might escape some from the open air design, but we'll get a boost from the amount of fans on field level.

It looks plain now, it'll look better when they paint it.

This. Having 2/3 (approx. 45,000) of the capacity seated in the lower bowl means that most of the noise is going directly back onto the field; the crowd noise generated from the fans in the lower bowl will be directly on the opponents' backs. It's a very interesting and sweet concept.

Levi's doesn't compare to Clink, obviously, considering Seattle designed it to trap the noise in but the prospect of having the largest lower bowl in the NFL and improved sound engineering/acoustics should make it an upgrade over Candlestick and Candlestick can get loud if the fans do, they just choose not to most of the time.

gonn' start the first wave @ levi's, lol
The irony is, what makes century link stadium so loud is also what makes it so uncomfortable for its fans. Also, it is important to note that Kansas City has already broken Seattle's record once this season and will probably break it again, and Kansas City has an open stadium.

Well, I expect the majority STH and new regulars socioeconomic demographic of Levi's to definitely shift to the South Bay...if it's anything like the crowds @ sharks hockey games (magnified to 60k+) watch out

This is just sad. The stadium is like most of the building in Santa Clara or San Jose…functional with no style or pizzazz. A stadium is part of a city's skyline and is a major component in establishing a cities identity. It also will establish a team's identity.

In today's NFL people want more then functional and if I am going to have to pay a seat license plus deal with a 50-100% increase in season tickets I sure as hell better get more then just a functional stadium.

With this stadium I do not see a Super Bowl coming to the Santa Clara anytime soon


pump those breaks man! i don't think stadiums win championships...

Ya wanna re-think this statement now?
Another thing nobody is talking about is all the glass used for the press boxes and luxury suites, which is more then any other stadium. Glass reflects sound and naturally amplifies it. Of course glass has its breaking point, but should make for a lot of interesting noise.
