It now seems that every sports stadium is a palace of sorts, but not all sports venues are built equally. These 15 stadiums stand out as the worst stadiums in sports history.

RFK Stadium has been an albatross seemingly since it opened in 1961. It has awful amenities and sight lines, and fans seem to run away from the venue.

Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum wasn't even up to date when it opened in 1972, and there will be few tears shed when it is finally demolished.

Oakland County Coliseum has hosted both the Oakland Raiders and Oakland Athletics, yet neither wants to make it their permanent home because it seems ready to break down any day now.

The Kingdome had perhaps the worst sight lines of any sports venue ever, and it looked ready to fall down on its own before the city demolished the place in 2000.

BMO Harris Bradley Center is incredibly small for an NBA arena and is about as bland as it gets on the inside. The NBA has forced the Milwaukee Bucks to leave the awful venue by 2017.

10. Colt Stadium

Colt Stadium didn't seem to have a lick of shade, which helped make it a miserable place for players and Houston Astros fans alike.

9. Exhibition Stadium

Perhaps Exhibition Stadium wouldn't look so bad if the Toronto Blue Jays had never played there, but hindsight is always 20/20. The fact is that Exhibition Stadium was built for football, while the Blue Jays play baseball, which made the venue one to remember for all the wrong reasons.

8. Ralph Wilson Stadium

Ralph Wilson Stadium is absolutely decrepit at this point, as time has broke down the venue to the point where the Buffalo Bills seem set to either relocate or build a new venue.

7. The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome

The Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome was always problematic for players because of its turf surface, and did not appease to fans because of its strange lighting. Oh, and the roof actually collapsed in 2010.

6. The Astrodome

The Astrodome brought artificial turf and domed stadiums to MLB. Fans, players and the media alike all wish it hadn't done so.

5. Polo Grounds

The Polo Grounds is one of the most important stadiums in sports history, but the place turned into a dump and forced the New York Giants out of town in the process.

4. Oracle Arena

Oracle Arena is located right next to the Oakland County Coliseum, and the venue is equally old, ugly and in just as poor of a bad location.

3. Tropicana Field

Tropicana Field has all the negative attributes that can be tied to domed venues, plus it suffers from the fact that fans won't go there even when the Tampa Bay Rays are good.

2. Candlestick Park

Candlestick Park looked good to people at home, but it was absolutely frigid even in the summertime, had what seemed like miles of foul territory, and drew the ire of NFL and MLB players regularly.

1. Shea Stadium

Shea Stadium likely wouldn't have looked so bad if it wasn't in the New York Metropolitan area, where it was constantly compared to Yankee Stadium. Nevertheless, Shea Stadium wasn't attractive, seemed to rely on gimmicks and was never really beloved by anyone besides Chipper Jones.
