I don't understand why everyone knocks that stadium. Keeping in mind (if you're not from Chicago) that the way this turned out had as much, or more to do with Mayor Daley than the Bears, I think it looks pretty cool (and I am no Daley fan). I know everyone always says "duhr...it looks like a space ship landed in Soldier Field." To that I can only say, "No, no it does not, it doesn't look anything like that". What it looks like is a large professional sports stadium using ultra modern architecture with historical elements surrounding it that would have been criminal to remove. Well, that's what I see anyway, knowing full well that Chicago is the type of city that will bitch about the old stadium and it's terrible seating and then bitch about the new building no matter what it looks like. It's just the way it is.
no 4da, it looks like a toiletbowl, or a space ship. The two designs do not blend well at all, and blame whoever you want, the reality is the team should have scrapped SF and built new, they could have done it cheaper and better from ground up; and don't give me the "they've always playd their it's history bs" they've been in SF since the 70's. There is no "history" there other then 1 sb season.
Agree to disagree my friend. I am well aware of the Bears history as well as the history behind Soldier Field and I could care less where the Bears played. In my opinion the sanctity of the history behind Soldier Field has little or nothing to do with the Bears. To suggest that it should have been scrapped all together just for another new stadium is simply wrong in my opinion. If they had not done what they did, then they should have gone to Schaumburg, and in fact, I would have applauded that over what they did, but I also understand economics play a role in what we do. I just simply don't think it looks nearly as bad as a lot of people say and while some genuinely feel (obviously like yourself) that it's a poor design, others simply bitch for the sake of bitching.
It's something that some fans hate and others are OK with. I really don't care one way or the other about the "addition" part. I still love the stadium. There is a rich history of Bears games in that stadium for me. Ric's right, the Bears played at Wrigley prior to the 70's. But for me personally, there has been so many wonderful games played at Soldier Field.
I always get through the gates there as soon as humanly possible, just so I can sit in that stadium and soak in the GREAT memories I have of games I've watched there.
I love the place.
But I realize half the people hate it. And that's cool. But I'm one of those who absolutely LOVES Soldier Field. Toilet bowl and all :)
Reminds me of convos about past Comiskey Park vs US Cellular Field. Love the new park but you can't compare it to being on the right field line at field level with Roberto Clemente out there as example. Same with Soldier Field/Wrigley where 1 day it'll be different, for some great & others a passing of memories.

The Pack isn't going to sweep us ,.. is all I'm high on and believing and hoping in ,..... the the rest is gravy
