Twin Cities stadium ratings

Recommended Posts

Found this rather surprising.  The highest rated stadium was Allianz Field.  The next highest one is where the St Paul Saints play.  The Gophers stadiums fill the rear.

Based only on how they look from the outside.

The saints stadium is great.  I'd rather go to a game there than target field any day of the week.  Except today I guess.  More intimate venues normally have a better fan experience.  Was at us bank for the first time and decided id rather be at the Alerus.  Was so far away from the field I couldn't see what was really happening.

Did you even read it or just not understand what it was saying? It rated them strictly on looks from the outside. Nothing more, nothing less.

Now before you raise the pitchforks, we just want to make it clear that these are purely cosmetic rankings based on how they look on the outside.

We're very aware that some are far nicer than others inside but let's face it, as that isn't what most Minnesotans see on a day-to-day basis. And no, we're not taking into account atmosphere or anything like that, we're trying to be as shallow as possible here.

It's in the title.

That Allianz Stadium is what UND should have for FBS, with a retractable dome and green and white lights.

Set you up for it.

Highest rated stadium =/= Best Looking Stadium

The former was your comment. The latter was the title and subject matter of the article you linked to. The title of the thread says it was the ratings of the stadium, which it isn't. They are ranked by looks. So either you were being misleading and leaving out what they were actually ranking or you didn't grasp the concept.
