I've been visiting a few other teams' boards today and this topic is up at a couple places. It's an interesting poll and every time a fan has been to Arrowhead, it ranks up in the top 2 of that person's list (only stadium I saw consistently beating out Arrowhead was Lambeau).

So list the ones you've been to, and rank 'em.

I've only been to Arrowhead and Edward Jones.

Arrowhead's obviously the better of the two, but the fact that Jones is a dome prevents the sound from escaping, making even nominal crowd noise pretty stinkin' loud. The crowd wants St. Louis to win but it lacks an intensity -- and the crowd doesn't look like the ocean of color that Arrowhead does, it's just people in streetclothes.

Who here can put me to shame?

Sadly I have only been to 2 stadiums.

Arrowhead, can't beat the view but the bathrooms are teh sux

Superdome - pre Katrina, it's very user friendly but nothing "exciting"

I bet post-Katrina it's taken a bound or two forward.

If we're talking about JUST the stadium, then the Cardinals new place in Glendale is far and away tops.

So, considering sightlines, amenities, etc, I'd go:

Arizona
Arrowhead
Chicago (before they turned it into a spaceship)
Indianapolis
St Louis
San Francisco



Considering the ENTIRE package, gameday experience, crowds etc:

Arrowhead
Chicago
San Francisco
Arizona
Indianapolis
St Louis


As far as places I'd like to see a game:

Quest Field, Seattle

Lambeau

The Cowboys new barn once it's built

I've only been to Arrowhead.

But before I was a Chiefs fan, I came to KC with a high school friend. I made her drive as close to Arrowhead as we could so I could see it. It would be years before I would get to go to the game that changed me to a Chiefs fan....I should have known....

I've only been to Jack Murphy (I'm not about to call it Qualcomm) and Arrowhead. What made Arrowhead good is what made Jack Murphy bad, the fans. It was the year before San Diego started getting good but the SD fans were classless, effeminate drunks for the game I saw. My brother had ponied up for club level seats and we watched in our Red & Gold. A couple of rows back some jerk off shouted "I can't believe you paid 200 bucks to see the Chiefs". To which I replied "I can't believe you paid 200 bucks to see the Chargers". Towards the end though we did meet a couple of fans who were drunk enough not to be PITAs. SD had suffered quite a few years of laughingstock so I'm willing to cut them a bit of slack but, overall, it sucked.

1. Arrowhead - I am not sure anything can top the complete package that arrowhead offers.

2. H.H.H. Metrodome - sucked. They had the speakers up to a level that made my ears bleed. The Vikings fans were nice, however.

Yeah, if you thought seeing a football game there was bad, try baseball. Nothing like seeing a baseball donk off a speaker and change path.

I have to admit that the fans were nice to me in my Chiefs regalia and even laughed off my three hours of drunken insults and harrassment. They could have really hauled off on me, seeing that was the game the Chiefs lost by 25+ a few years ago.

-1.) Jack Murphy / Qualcomm - The stadium sucks balls. We need a new stadium, but we have too many douchey environmentalists who have to sue every time a stadium goes up in California, stopping all progress in building stadiums (Petco Park was to be opened by 2002, didnt open til 2004).

I havent been to any other Football stadiums.

I've been to AT&T Park in San Fran though, its real nice.

I've been to both venues, and Arrowhead blasts Lambeau's fan intensity/loudness out of the water.

1. Kansas City (The only stadium I've been to that's not a POS)

Arrowhead- Greatest venue in sports

Texas toilet bowl er stadium- It was fun talking shit to Cowgirl fans the stadium is a dump though.

Qualcom- I actually liked the stadium. I'm sure all three Charger fans were really psyched for the game. Just like most games in S.D the opposing teams fans take over the stadium.

1. Arrowhead - Has it all. Fans, sight lines, bbq. Needs better big screens to compete with the new stadiums. The wider concourses are on their way.

The next 3 are almost interchangeable.

2. Oakland - The Club Level is very nice. I wore Chiefs gear on my first visit and then decided it wasn't worth the hassle. The feature that Oakland has that can not be matched is Bart. I walk out my front door and in 5 minutes I am at the Bart station. 25 minutes later I am at the entrance to the stadium. This is very nice after drinking beer for 4 hours.

3. SD - We used to own that stadium. It was commonly referred to as Arrowhead West as there were more Chief fans than Chargers. Terrible parking. Quirky seating. Some of the younger fans get out of control but that is common at NFL games.

4. Candlestick Park - This stadium is horrible. On one side of the stadium the seats are set so they face the old baseball field. Hence, they are cocked at a 20 degree angle off the sideline. The parking lot is a mud pit. There are 2 roads in/out. It is located in the equivalent 9th and Quindaro. We asked a cop where we should go to find a cab outside of the stadium after we missed our bus. He told us not to walk out of the stadium parking lot. He said people who do are called one thing. Victims.

I've been to Arrowhead, old and new Soldier Field, and Lambeau.

Lambeau is a cramped pit. Bench seats with 50,000 fatass cheeseheads in 10 layers of clothes packed in like sardines. I would never watch another game there.

Old Soldier Field was cool, but most of the seats were in the endzones. The remodeled stadium is an abomination to behold from the outside. On the inside it's nice and obviously modern, but the design is completely chaotic and lacks any kind of symmetry. And Bears fans are NOT smart about when to make noise and not make noise. At all.

Arrowhead blows them all away.

I've been to Qwest Field. The year it opened to see the Seahawks play the Chiefs. I was amazed at the ticket prices I think it was $75 a ticket for the fourth row on the 45 yard line just behind the Chiefs bench. The stadium was great. I had some weird looks from the Seahawks fans because I was chearing for both teams. If I remember correctly there was over 1000 yards of total offense in the game. But unfortunately the Chiefs lost.

I've seen the plans for the new baseball park in Minneapolis but I don't know anything about a new football stadium. I have heard ol' Ziggy wants to build a mega center that will include a new stadium, but nothing specific. I hope that the next time I see the Chiefs play the Vikings in MN, it's in the Viking's new digs.

I've been to 3 but at only one was there a football game going on.

1)Arrowhead, obviously

2) Ralph Wison Stadium. Was there for a concert. Seemed like a nice place to see a football game.

3) Mile High for the Colorado Rockies first ever home game. Record crowd for an MLB game. The stadium was a dump, and that was somehow comforting to me.

Arrowhead is the best for gameday experience, but I think the new Dallas Cowboy stadium will put Arrowhead to shame for the actual stadium from what I have seen.

Well shit. That reminds me, I went to Heinz field for the Chiefs game last year. Yeah, it seems my efforts to block that abortion of a game from my memory have worked!

As for the stadium, meh. It was ok. Didn't seem to be very fan friendly. Bare-bones if you will, and Steelers fans are insufferable, unrealistic, big-headed, morons.

That's not a bad thing, my first "favorite" band was Buddy Holly. I still bust the tape I have of his greatest hits every so often. Oldies aren't bad just old. For music that's not a negative.
