Huh? First, New Soldier Field is a fantastic stadium. Yes, I've been there. I love the vertical feeling the stands give you - you're right on top of the field. If they had built that as a stand-alone stadium instead of a 'renovation', nobody would complain. Second, If they (magically) did the same thing to RFK (gut the interior and rebuild a modern stadium within the old footprint), I certainly wouldn't complain. As far as history and architecture goes, RFK is no Soldier Field. RFK's concrete ramps aren't exactly the equivalent of Soldier Field's colonnade. Third, I'm not sure how the Feds 'allowing' anything is relevant. They have no teeth in terms of historic preservation, but they do own the site. It's hardly an analogous situation - most importantly because no one with any money is proposing such a thing in the first place.
