    Personally, I would love this stadium for three reasons: Outdoors, but still protected from a monsoon; Superior lighting for night games (it's pretty bad now); and the sideline seats pushed up much closer to the sidelines.

    I like the horizontal screens above the seats. So does anybody who's ever sat in the hot summer sun (or frequent summer rains) in South Florida.

    This makes sense in places where it rains a lot. I like the design.

    How long did it take you to figure out we don't actually live in Europe?

    Same reason one looks for a great Italian restaurant in NYC

    Looks interesting, the flatness of it reminds me a little of the San Siro in Milan.

    I love it.

    I've gotten into watch EPL matches a little bit recently, and one of the things I love is looking at the architecture of the stadiums. Field is the same shape as an American football field, but the buildings look so different.

    So many NFL stadiums look the same. I'd love to see somebody go with a Euro-style design.

    Looks kind of like the Murph on steroids.

    Ahhhh yesss, the taxpayers need to spend several hundred million dollars in order to further pamper the multi-billionaire owners of the NFL. In addition to the hundreds of millions of dollars they have already spent to build the stadium.

    Because if they don't, the Super Bowl will never come back to Miami. It will be played in Cleveland or Buffalo instead.

    I love how the release notes that problems with rain are causing a Super Bowl "drought."
