    What is this world coming to, when it costs you as much or more just to park to watch a football game?

    It'll be a good way to encourage people to use public transport and take congestion off the roads on gamedays, but it's only going to hurt the fans. If I were the Bears I'd look into the feasibility of absorbing that cost on behalf of the fans. The PR alone would be more than worth it, especially when you consider $480,000 (the cost of paying this $100 parking tax for 60,000 fans for 8 games) is not a whole lot when it comes to NFL teams.

    Figuring it the way you did. It wouldn't be $480,000. It would be $48,000,000 for 8 games (60,000x8x$100).

    Although, they only have 700 spaces available & 10 games; 700x100x10=$700,000.

    I would walk. $100 would buy alot of pop and hotdogs at the game.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?
