    :lol: oki hipster.

    Don't think I have ever set foot in Dublin never mind that stadium, but it sure looks better than most of that graffiti in the article.

    Why doesn't that shock me.... anyway, to each their own. The less drab you can make a stadium for the people inside, the better. And grafitti, really? What would be more suitable for a stadium, "The Girl with the Pearl Earring" and a few Turner seascapes?!

    idk.....

    Those murals look like hot garbage. No need to deface the stadium with terrible post modern art. Actually, well, that came out kind of harsh. I think it looks dreadful, and I'll leave it at that.

    As for the food, which apparently journalists got to sample today, I'll say that if they can come close to what the (Florida) Panthers offer in the club seating section, they're on the right track. That's a legitimately good sporting venue food experience.

    I'll have to wait and see them and where they are. It's got to look better than those dreadful gray concrete walls.

    I believe there are still quite a few of those "fugly" speakers hanging down, but at least the logo covers the speakers in the center! :)

    Field for home opener....

    Still needs the final coats of paint, which will go on tomorrow, but we have aqua endzones for the first real game at The Rock.

    I'm going to my first ever Fins game in Miami on Nov. 6 against the Jets...needless to say I'm extremely pumped.

    Can anyone tell me what sections of Hard Rock Stadium give me the best bang for the buck (in other words, what sections should I try to buy my tickets without spending a ton of cash)? Also, being that I haven't attended a live NFL game in probably 15 years, can anyone recommend how I should buy my tickets? My buddy who's a huge Steelers fan told me to wait until a few days before the game and buy off Stub Hub as people will be desperate to sell their tix. It sounds logical, but I'm a little nervous about waiting that long since I already paid for my hotel and plane tickets. Is that sound advice or do you guys have any other suggestions?

    I guess the new turf isn't resilient to removing paint. They have cut out the endzones, midfield and the Play60 areas and will be replacing them with new turf.

    Wow!
    I clicked on this thread hoping for an "after" pic since the first Miami home game and there it is.
    Replacing the turf after each game seems like a lot of work....and money.
