OK. i'll preface this by saying that i haven't actually seen what a game looks like in the new BC place, other than seeing some photos like the ones you posted, but i actually prefer the look of Empire field. Especially for the whitecaps, but also for CFL football.

I don't know why the whitecaps would prefer to play in BC place when Empire field is just sitting there.

Although i guess BC place looks pretty cool from the outside and adds to the city skyline.

maybe you know 007nights: what do they plan to do with Empire field. I thought i read somewhere a long time ago that it was a 'temporary' stadium. Are they going to tear it down?

Well Vancouver is a big city - bigger than a lot of places in the US which have major sports teams. i always thought that there should be more top north american league sports there.

ya OK there. What makes it suck? The fact that millions of people watch and enjoy it? The fact that it's the second highest level professional league for the entire sport? Or is it because you and your friends don't like it and like to crap on things you don't like?

Congrats on over reacting to what I thought I made clear was a joke.

Ya it's a temporary stadium and they built it like in a month or something crazy like that for the Lions and Caps. They are going to tear it down and the field itself will remain.

For whitecap games they convert the stadium.

The jumbo-tron is actually massive even though it may not look like it. It's the second largest High Definition Jumbo-tron in North America at 68 feet wide. The jumbo-tron in Cowboy Stadium is 120 feet wide lol.

very cool how they made it look more intimate for whitecap games. On a side note I'm so shocked the Whitecaps blow

i went to this game, the stadium is impressive, poor service but that has to do with management then facilities

no disrespect to the cfl or mls

but this is a top quality building for A level sports, to bad it has D level tenants

nfl or mlb would be more suited for this building
