Aside from the huge financial rip-off that it represents, I don't have a problem with the new stadium. Personally I think that the crowd complaints are a little overblown (granted, I usually sit in the nosebleeds where the fans are rowdy no matter what,) and it's nice to be in a stadium with wide enough concourses that it doesn't take 45 minutes to get down from the upper deck.
