Is it one of the cooler NFL designs...or is it architectural overkill? Could you imagine if they did something like this to Wrigley?

Two words....

Ugg and Lee

It would have been so much cooler to do a retro style stadium to match the architecture of the old stadium. I don't know what they were thinking.

It's been said before; from the outside, it looks like a space ship landed on top of old Soldier Field.

It's a great on the inside. From the outside - an abomination.

The aerial shots do not do its hideousness justice.

Yeah, from the ground it looks like a mash-up of the parthenon and the alien probe coming out of Cartman's butt.

Looks ridiculous, but the fact is that stadium just plain needed more seating.

I think it's pretty cool but I understand the purists point of view too.

You need to see it in person too, to appreciate how ugly it is. I had seen pictures, but until we drove past it on our trip to Chicago last year, I did not realize how bad it was.

Chicago goes modern on the re-engineered Soldier Field.

Looks bad even in pictures
