IMO, 42mm binoculars are a bit large for stadium use. If you find this to be the case, you might look at a small 8x30 design, such as the Leupold Yosemities, or even the Steiners. The Leupy's are very small and lightweight. Even better might be their 6x version, which I find to be perfect for stadium use.
The Steiners do not need to be continually re-focused as long as the subjects viewed are more than 50-60 yards away. Not having to mess with a focus wheel can be helpful for quick and far-ranging action such as football.
You might also consider a travel-sized pair, such as the ones from Pentax and Nikon. You can get some very good ones from Pentax for under $90, and they will be much easier to manage than what you have now.
