why is there field turf on top of the boxes on the left of the stadium?


Maybe for golf practice purposes, although the Santa Clara Golf and Tennis Center directly across the street would likely serve better...

I REALLY LIKE IT!

Now that you have a clear idea of what it could really look like, it doesn't look so plain now, does it?

I just want this stadium to get built so we can have a great place to play and dominate our opponents!

Very Nice

I went to HS games for 4 years there (Sacred Heart '85). My dad graduated from the HS across the street (Poly) and played there at Kezar. Later, as SFPD, he worked the 49er games.

RIP dad (3/2/09)

Nice. The new design seems to pick up on some of Kezar's features especially on the box seat side.
Don't love it, don't hate it. Just want a new stadium at this point.

For me the new place is a celebration of 49ers football. Open air inviting design. All of these enclosed UFO mother ship stadiums to me simply signify the horrible weather of their locations. This stadium boldly flaunts our amazing climate and will be a stunning prime time & superbowl venue. Not to mention a very comfortable place to watch a niner game.

Well, since I doubt I will be going to any games, at least in the near future, I really don't care what it looks like, as longs most fans like it and the players can perform.

Looks like crap, if you really want to know my opinion.

Yeah, it's hard for me to believe this is the best they could come up with. Not a lot of imagination went into that...thing. But hey it's new!

THIS is a stadium!

Actually its not the worst point. Tone is not the easiest thing to get across.

THAT is a stadium built in a place where it rains 70% of the time. Thats why it covers a large number of the seats, but can still call itself an "open air" stadium.

Additionally the Seahawks are owned by one of the richest men in the world...Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft.

I'm not asking for our stadium to be built exactly like this. I'm asking for the same kind of imagination to be put into it. Like I've said before, it looks like they designed our stadium using Madden.

Additionally, Qwest Field cost around half ($430M) what ours will. It's not about throwing money at it like you're insinuating Paul Allen did. It's about building something beautiful. That thing they want to put in Santa Clara is crap.
