    Read quote about BR this earlier this week, "Bleacher Report is a page-view waste"

    As in poor content, click driven fodder.

    seems like the comments are a bit dated, and take into consideration the experience directly outside of the game, rather than inside the game only. I've only been to a few of these, but don't see anything significantly nicer about Atlanta's stadium vs GAPB. Wrigly field may have a lot of history and "character" but the ball park itself is outdated and in poor shape (at least the last time i was there, this was prior to the place falling apart and some of the fixes) Wrigleyville itself is great, the stadium itself kind of sucks, and then there's the team that calls it home.

    Whenever I do searches on google, I always exclude any result that contains "bleacherreport.com" -- it's a waste of 1s and 0s that clogs up search results and produces content that is usually devoid of any journalistic credability.

    I can assure you that Wrigley Field should not be ranked #3. My friends in Boston would most certainly disagree with Fenway's ranking as well.

    I agree with both of you. The content on BR is equivalent to that found in most student newspapers. Scratch that last sentence, as it is an insult to student papers.

    Wrigley is a pit! The whole food area under the stadium seats smells like urine. They'd have to pay me to eat anything from there. And, I get a stiff neck trying to watch the batter because the seats aren't skewed.

    I guess if a ballpark is ancient, it automatcially gets a higher ranking. Tragically, they retired the most beautiful of the ancient parks.

    I suppose if the Reds still played at Crosley Field, their park would be considered very good.

    The only good thing about Bleacher Report is this fake Twitter account mocking it:

    I print out bleacherreport.com pages and used them to line the birdcage.

    Sounds like a waste of good ink.

    Went to Shea after I went to Yankee Stadium. Shea was a dump.

    Bleacher Report is not a real media outlet. It's a place where any fan can write something and it will be posted on their site like it's a "real" article. But it's really just something from a random fan. Bleacher Report stuff has no validity.
