Of course. No corporate endorsements, and the largest capacity of any football stadium in the country. And an excellent town to go along with it.

For non-football locations, the Palace is about as good as NBA arenas go. Might as well throw the JLA in there also. Who, me, a homer? ;-D

well since everybody else is being a homer, i'll pipe in too. i've got to stick up for arrowhead and kauffman stadium. the royals are terrible, but they play in a very nice park. as for arrowhead, well i don't think i need to stick up for it too much to you fellas.

it's a shame that both stadiums are in a crap-tastic location for the city. but that's a whole different story that is neither here nor there in relation to this thread. ;-D

JLA sucks, its all suits that sit in the lower bowl, the arena rarely gets rowdy. To have a team as good as the wings in a mostly blue collar town, JLA is realativly quiet.

Yea, the Big House wins out for me as well.

I have read Autzen is the loudest stadium in college football, impressive for only 59,000 capacity.

Its true. Its the way stadium is designed. I was gonna throw that tid-bit in there but I figured everybody would call me a liar. :-b

Undeniably one of the most recognizable landmarks in all of athletics, Ohio Stadium is now beyond its 80th year as the home of Ohio State football.

Built in 1922, “The Horseshoe” has just undergone an extensive three-year renovation, preservation and expansion project that will ensure its longevity for years to come.

With 101,568 seats now closely surrounding the playing field, this grand old structure, standing tall along the banks of the Olentangy River, is at the same time both intimate and intimidating.

Amazing how they took the old school stadium and trasformed it into a top notch facility while keeping the traditional reverant feeling intact.
Awesome before the renovations, and even better now. ;-D
thats the one place i'd love to go, course...il prolly never get to go, unless i jump on the waiting season ticket-holder list, i might get the season tickets when im like 75...maybe.

but it wouldn't be as exciting now that favre is gone, and yeah, hes gone, idiots just had to fire sherman. :-[
