It would be nice to have the capacity to host a Super Bowl here in Chicago.
Isn't Soldier Field one of, if not the smallest in regards to seating? Seems like a no brainer and it honestly should have been factored in before the restructured it.
It's about time Chicago gets to hold a Super Bowl. If New Jersey can do it, why not Chicago?
It's the smallest seating capacity in the NFL, yes.
The Bears have a 98% season ticket renewal rate and have sold out every game since 1984. Chicago Bears fans would sell out Soldier Field no matter how much you expanded its capacity.
OK, here we go. Now we have King Rahm jumping into the mix
This COULD HAVE been done when they built the damn thing Mr. Mayor, but your predecessor, the illustrious Mayor Daley was too freakin stupid to go for it. They actually REDUCED the capacity with the new renovation. He was too worried about the money and not having it perceived that the Bears were getting one over on him. Hell, he cried poor mouth then, and the city is worse off now. Fast forward a few years and the same Mayor Daley has suggested the city needs ANOTHER stadium to get a different NFL team in, now Rahm wants more seating. You watch, the next thing will be how to put a roof on what we have now (they had a design with a roof originally, but that would have cost too much).
I swear, do the people of Chicago even think before they vote.
I say, go ahead and build a big ass new stadium to try to get a 2nd NFL team here. IF you get them here, they wont last long because no one will go unless they play the Bears. Then once they move out, the Bears can move in.
So is Rahm going to get into a time machine? The time to do this was in 2002. I remember one of the sticking points on the stadium with more seats, a roof, and not looking like a space ship landed was that it would have taken two years to complete instead of one. Daley did not want to give up that revenue stream for two years that having the Bears home games brings. So shortsighted...
The math doesn't add up. You need 70,000 seats for a super bowl, we have 61,000 and he's adding 5,000? Sounds like we're about 4,000 short.
61k is stupid small for the Bears fan following!
And where would those seats go? Way up top like they tried at comisk...us cellular and they ripped em out? Would they install coin-op telescopes so you could see the game?
