Power Rankings: Couch Potato's Guide To NFL Stadiums
 
The criteria should comprise more than just aesthetics. It's about the intangible atmosphere - the influence a residence and its fans has on the team's success and vice versa. It's about the architectural history combined with present-day stability that enforces the league's varying reputations. Real estate is surely more than fancy powder-blue blazers.

In an era where most of what is obsolete is being imploded up until this moment, here is a poor locked-out fan's guide to ranking the NFL stadiums:

25. Georgia Dome (Atlanta Falcons)
There have been issues with the outdated top of the dome, tornado insurance, an overall feeling of cleanliness...the Falcons cannot soar without a retractable roof.

2. Mercedes-Benz Superdome (New Orleans Saints)
Aside from Mardi Grass acting as popular Super Bowl hosts, the Saints hardly had anything to march about before or during Hurrican Katrina. Not only did the worl'd largest fixed dome survive the physical damage, but it healed a community back to brilliant health as the country's strongest home field advantage arguably ever observed, and it would take an invaluable stadium in itself to top it...
Here's the condensed version :bng:

21. Bank of America Stadium (Carolina Panthers)
This was the other one I failed to remember. I opened an account with Bank of America in May and I'm generally content, but the NFL venue that sparked the outbreak of Personal Seat Licenses and modernization of various other stadiums has proven to be too ahead of its time.

20. Raymond James Stadium (Tampa Bay Buccaneers)
Whether or not the NFL can thrive in Florida, one thing is for certain: the Bucs possess a 103-foot pirate ship with confetti cannons. We've entered the red zone.

You left out the other 2

I'll take flak for this but Ray Jay is awesome. Yes, it's completely disneyfied but seriously, who the f*ck doesn't like a pirate ship?

.. and again, that green and yellow monstrosity in the middle of nowhere gets the #1 vote because, well, because.. "it's Lambeau Field", "it's the frozen tundra", blah blah blah.

True.
Just imagine the dome rocking a float with topless cheerleaders throwing beads at the crowd.
