The NFL is by far the most popular sport in America. Their estimated revenue this year is around $ 9 billion. That money is clearly not going towards the stadiums on this list. These are the 10 worst stadiums in the league.

The biggest problem with the Panthers' stadium is that it is just too plain. It's not old or bad enough to require a new stadium, so their only hope is to have some creative renovations take place.

The Georgia Dome has hosted everything from the Super Bowl, the Final Four and even the Olympics. The problem is the quality of the stadium doesn't match up with its lofty resume. The Georgia Dome now holds the title of worst indoor stadium in the league since the Metrodome is no more.

Ralph Wilson Stadium opened up in 1974. I'm sure it was pretty cool back then, but currently, it needs some renovations. It just doesn't match up with the passion of the Buffalo fanbase.

Soldier Field is the oldest stadium in the NFL, and it's not even close. It just celebrated its 90th year open last year. That is a nice accomplishment, but it's time to build a new one. NFL stadiums just don't age with the same grace that baseball stadiums do. Soldier Field also has one of the worst playing surfaces in the NFL.

LP Field has the same problem that many of the other stadiums on this list have. It's just not interesting enough. Not every stadium has to have a giant pirate ship on it, but you can at least throw some creativity in there.

EverBank Field has the unfortunate task of trying to be cool while hosting the Jacksonville Jaguars. This task has proven to be too much and the stadium has become as nondescript as the team that plays there.

The main reason that FedEx Field appears on this list is their brutal playing surface. You never want your team to play in Washington late in the year because of how bad the field condition gets. It seems like something that should have been fixed by now, but then again this is the same team that can't figure out that their team name is offensive.

Sun Life Stadium is so bad that it is no longer getting a chance to bid on hosting the Super Bowl. Think about that. They are located in Miami. That fact alone should be enough to host a Super Bowl, but unfortunately, they have one of the worst stadiums in the league.

2. Qualcomm Stadium

San Diego faces all of the same issues that Miami has. In terms of weather, there isn't a better location to host a Super Bowl, yet they can't get on the list either. The stadium is just so out of date and the fans hardly ever show up.

It had to be Oakland. They lose major points for still having to share the field with the Oakland A's. There is nothing worse than watching a football game with a baseball diamond in the middle of the field. The stadium is so outdated and easily wins the title of "Worst Stadium in the NFL."
