We are just days away from the commencement of the new NFL season with the opening game between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks just over 24 hours away.

Everyone is asking the same questions ahead of the upcoming season, who will win the Super Bowl? Who will look best? What shocks can we expect to see?

Well for fans of the Green Bay Packers, their hopes ahead of the new season may be somewhat hindered.

Starting the season at the home of the defending Super Bowl champions and the loudest stadium in the world is a very intimidating prospect.

Its not all bad news for the Packers however as they have been brandished with a fairly high honour ahead of the new season.

The much debated book by first time author Sean MacDonald entitled 'The Ultimate Football Road Trip', which charters one fans journey to visit all 32 NFL stadiums in a single season has listed Green Bay's Lambeau Field as the best stadium to visit.

MacDonald, who spent last season on his 20,353 mile round trip across the NFL graded the stadiums on 10 different aspects with the only one bringing Lambeau Field down being transit and parking.

With Lambeau Field taking the prize as the best stadium to visit, Heinz Field in Pittsburgh takes second place, and Denver's Sports Authority Field both rank highly.

Other highly ranked stadiums included Indianapolis Colts' Lucas Oil Stadium, and M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore, home of the Ravens.

There were however the stadiums on the other end of the list with the Edward Jones Dome in St Louis being dubbed the worst stadium to visit.

Causing a stir

MacDonald's book has unsurprisingly caused outrage amongst those fans whose teams do not feature highly in many of its rankings.

Perhaps the fans with the right to be more outraged is that of the Buffalo Bills, who were deemed in the book as being the drunkest within the league.

St Louis Rams fans will surely be unhappy that their stadium has been listed as the worst to attend but the book should never be taken as a statement against individual teams.

The purpose of the book is to provide fans with an insight into where to eat, drink and go both before and after each game.
