MLS Stadium Progress: Colorado Rapids

My fellow RSL supporters may flog me for this, but I wanted to comment on the Colorado Rapids stadium pictures that were recently released. And since both Rapids fans might be busy I figured nobody would mind.

I'm very encouraged by the computer renderings. The pitched roof over the sideline stands is a nice touch. I especially like this picture. You might wonder why (besides that it is an accurate depiction of what it will look like on game days). If you notice, this like many of the MLS stadiums being built or recently completed doesn't have stands behind one of the goals. This is fine, what ever floats the owners boat, that doesn't really bother me.

But, you'll notice something missing in Colorado that's in all the others - the stage structure. I don't mind having the stages so much as the enormous distracting structure that looms over them. It's the only blemish, in my mind, of the otherwise beautiful Pizza Hut Park, and soon to be Bridgeview in Chicago.

Nicely done Colorado. Each of your fans will be able to bring a friend and they can all have their own letter...with plenty to spare.

Isn't 18,000 a small stadium?
Even for USL standards?

OH well, it is the CRapids.
