Well, I hear ya on the part about feeling old.

As for the stadium debate, I'm not sure that the allegation is that people in the 21-35 age bracket should be the only ones involved in the debate. In fact, I'm not sure that I've heard much about actually ASKING any of us. Just the same old objectifications about young people, this time being used to promote a stadium. Doesn't change the fact that most of the decision-making-power is still held by wealthy men in their fifties.

There's nothing new about the idea of trying to capitalize on the hip, sexy appeal of youthful creativity. But I'd be more convinced if I knew one person in this age bracket who actually thought this way. Making superficial observations about creative people accomplishes nothing when you miss entirely the messages they're trying to convey. A Football stadium to placate restless twenty-somethings? I think I speak for my age bracket when I say "what is this, the 1950s?"
