Construction Cost: US$325 million
Gillette was an incredibly clean and high-class stadium. I won’t speak for the fans, who are currently getting well-deserved criticism for the incident with Tyreek Hill Sunday night, but the stadium itself was beautiful and well worth the trip.
What I will say about the fans are that they are clearly loyal to their team, as should be expected, and they were on their feet more than they were sitting. It was a great football atmosphere and, again, incredibly clean. It was the no. 1 thing that stood out to me.
