#31681 - saltyfries (5 hours ago) [-]
ITT:  Things that piss you off   
   
I hate how quickly stadiums are being replaced nowadays, like Atlanta's (Both Turner Field and Georgia Dome are planned to be replaced), some stadiums are not even 30-40 years old and they get replaced, like Giant's Stadium in the Meadowlands, what was the point of replacing it considering Metlife cost $1.6 billion and LOOKS EXACTLY THE SAME!?  I can understand most baseball stadium replacements (except Turner Field and New Yankee Stadium), but many of the new football stadiums come across as unnecessary and a huge waste of money.   
   
Of the new NFL Stadiums I do like   
Cowboy's Stadium (actually looks like it's worth $1 billion)   
Levi's Stadium (housing 2 teams and green friendly, that's cool)   
and the new Viking's Dome   
   
These new stadiums are ok because the old ones were either not good for the fans (like the old concrete donuts), the new ones are cheap, simply made, actually replacing a stadium falling apart that's like 60+ years old (like Candlestick), or getting a team out of a shared stadium like the Marlins, but many of the excuses these days for new stadiums stem from "fan experience" (replacing georgia dome), new location (turner field), or just to host a super bowl (Metlife).  It's fucking stupid and a huge waste of resources that could be used to renovate the stadiums to get the same results you fucking dumbass owners want FOR LESS!  Worse is when a younger stadium like those last three I mentioned get replaced, but not an actual old stadium falling apart like Oakland-Alemada...

when people say the Lightning have no fans. you don't make it into the top 10 in attendance for the past few years without fans.
User avatar #31683 to #31682 - saltyfries (5 hours ago) [-]
if anything Coyotes and Panthers have no fans (Coyotes 30th and Panthers 29th respectively), god even though the Coyotes were a good team last season they averaged just over 13k fans a game, and I know exactly why for both teams! I said it before, and I'll say it again, it's because their arenas ARE IN SUBURBS!

I'm sitting here waiting for the AC Milan vs Manchester City delay to end, and I must say Heinz Field looks pretty nice. Are all American Football stadiums this nice?
User avatar #31676 to #31670 - nachoiscool ONLINE (10 hours ago) [-]
yeah its hit or miss some are amazing like the rose bowl and cowboy stadium and a few are pretty run down like the LA coliseum and Candlestick Park
User avatar #31679 to #31676 - saltyfries (8 hours ago) [-]
the nice thing about candlestick is that it's empty now and it's gonna be demolished finally.
Levi's Stadium opens this year and the Giants play in AT&T park, Oakland-Alameda is now only home to the Athletics god bless their souls...

Some are pretty bad: Oakland–Alameda County Coliseum en.wikipedia.org/wiki/O.co_Coliseum , but some are pretty good: see saltyfries comment.

Most of the fields are really nice, but there are some that are absolute shit. One of my favorite fields is Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, PA (see image). It is relatively new (constructed in the early 2000s) and has a capacity of 68,532 people. en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lincoln_Financial_Field

I went to one of their games vs the Cowboys boys? a few years ago. The stadium is very nice, the fans on the other hand are quite the opposite.
User avatar #31675 to #31674 - choochoomofo (11 hours ago) [-]
I'm not saying all the Philly fans are mean, i'm just saying the overall atmosphere wasn't very friendly. I don't know if its because they were facing Dallas or if thats how the fans usually act.
User avatar #31678 to #31675 - hockeykicksass (8 hours ago) [-]
it was because it was against dallas, philly aint the friendliest place but its not that bad when its not a huge rival
#31671 to #31670 - saltyfries (12 hours ago) [-]
motherfuckin lambeau field nigga, most legendary stadium in the US, built in 1957, expanded to 80k capacity, located in a city of 100k people.

I want Brock Lesnar to win at Summer Slam on the 17th. Fuck Cena.
#31668 to #31667 - saltyfries (15 hours ago) [-]
he should for a few reasons imo
>to give Cena time off
>Lesnar doesn't have to defend it all that much meaning midcards can finally work to get over
>Lesnar has to prove that beating the Undertaker at WM is beast
>it could set up for an epic Wrestlemania main event that has Lesnar losing clean by someone who could've beaten the Undertaker in a better way, ie Daniel Bryan.
>it can allow for more clever booking and storylines for midcarders to build up WM31 considering Lesnar's inactivity during minor PPV seasons.

Again a goal from Lewandowski.
User avatar #31665 to #31664 - christmouth (17 hours ago) [-]
3-0 so far. Pizarro made a great assist to Rode, and Lewandowsdi scored his second goal today with a shot from outside the box.

LSU in a nutshell
User avatar #31653 - hawaiianhappysauce ONLINE (07/26/2014) [-]
I don't get why people are so mad about Ray Rice being suspended for only 2 games? He had a clean record before that, his wife admitted that she struck first, and he has been cooperating.

Now, most stupid feminists would argue "but he is a big man and should learn to hold himself back."

But his fiance doesn't have to hold back? That's really all Stephen A Smith was saying. Women shouldn't hit their guy either. Of course the stupid feminazi's, political correctness assholes, and liberal morons had to whine and complain about someone with an opinion on a debate show.

The only complaint I have, is why Josh Gordon is being suspended for a whole year. If Gordon lost 6 games I would be fine with that because this is a recurring theme for him. But a whole year?

and when she got knock unconscious it was unintentional, when he hit her she whiplashed so hard she hit her head on the elevator, he didn't even hit her that hard.

I'm a Cleveland sports fan
#31607 to #31603 - Blackarican (07/25/2014) [-]
We winning every championship next year!
User avatar #31610 to #31607 - saltyfries (07/25/2014) [-]
to be fair I kinda wish Cleveland sports would get good, but you guys are doing it the wrong way
>LeBron coming back
>Johnny Football drafted at 22nd pick like Quinn and Wheedon
Only team I wanna see win in Cleveland is the Indians I grew up loving and watching Major League starring Charlie Sheen

How is LeBron James on ANY team a bad thing?
User avatar #31615 to #31614 - saltyfries (07/25/2014) [-]
>nonstop media coverage
>primadonna
>King Flop
>only 1 title to his name compared to many other legends
#31619 to #31615 - Blackarican (07/25/2014) [-]
He led the Heat to the championships every year since 2011, C'MON. This is definitely good news for Cleveland, especially since we also maybe getting Kevin Love
#31620 to #31619 - saltyfries (07/25/2014) [-]
>led
>not win
>implying he'll ever win a championship again
#31624 to #31620 - Blackarican (07/25/2014) [-]
They won 2 out of the 4 times!
#31625 to #31624 - saltyfries (07/25/2014) [-]
yeah because he needed 2 other all-stars to win it instead of how he tried in Cleveland, 1 more all-star ain't gonna cut it.

you're too rich btw, pickin on a LeBron fan is so easy... I'm not a b-ball fan by any means mostly because it's a horrible sport in many ways (at least in terms of the NBA) and the nonstop coverage they get compared to other sports.
#31631 to #31625 - Blackarican (07/26/2014) [-]
LeBron, Kyrie, Kevin Love (possibly), Ray Allen (possibly). That's a team of all stars.

Not a huge fan of it, wishing they went back to the original, but ah well.

Next season should definitely be interesting, will probably go 8-8 at best but it'll be a start.
User avatar #31628 to #31622 - MoparMan (07/25/2014) [-]
I haven't seen a single prediction that doesn't put Tampa as a 10W team this year. but yeah, regardless of how they ACTUALLY do, it's nice to finally be rid of Schiano.
User avatar #31629 to #31628 - MillionsKnives (07/25/2014) [-]
I've been a Bucs fan for a long time, I've learned to temper my expectations greatly.

Agreed, Schiano was a terrible decision and doesn't deserve a coaching job anywhere in the NFL.

MillionsKnives he's a Buc fan
