I went to a game at Soldier Field in 2001 and saw the Bears play the Browns (crazy game).

I think that was the last season before they renovated the stadium, so I was happy to see a game there before the renovation.

We stayed at the McCormick Place Convention Center and walked to the game, which was maybe a mile away, which was no big deal when we saw the cluster**** of traffic trying to leave after the game.

I would have crabwalked back to the hotel over sitting in that traffic for hours.

I kind of feel bad (obviously not that bad) for Mark Davis, as I've heard stories of Al Davis treating him like **** and berating and belittling him in front of people on a regular basis.

Yeah...the financials of this deal looks shaky at best. It looks to me like the Raiders are heavily financing this 800 million dollar stadium deal. Doing it the Al Davis way...screwing others for their own benefit.

1.) Raiders are looking to the NFL for a 200 million dollar loan.
2.) Asking the City of Oakland to put up 300 million in public financing.
3.) Raiders are ballparking that they will get a 100 million in seat licensing.
4.) Naming rights to the Stadium.

When you add it all up, the Raiders aren't really putting in anything.

The Broncos did the exact same thing:
1.) Bowlen coughed up about 25% (~$98M)
2.) Extended sales tax to pay for 75% of the stadium ($266M)
3.) Naming rights to the stadium ($6M per year, half payable directly to Bowlen, so far $78M total)

Taxpayers finished paying it off by the end of 2011.

Or sell lots of toilet made wine.

Maybe they can trade cigarettes for some of the construction labor?

You had it easy.

I know season ticket holders who used to rent a night at a flea bag hotel on the corner of Roosevelt and Michigan just to park because it was cheaper than paying for regular parking and it was closer. They went into the room only to leave the key. Could be BS but that is the story they told and I kinda believe them.

How much did the city of Denver give towards the Broncos' stadium?

Had the pleasure of getting lost at 1 am in Oakland this past weekend after having a few too many. I was offered crack and a hooker in a 15 second time frame. Still, didn't get robbed.

Crack and a hooker? You were one venereal disease away from the "Oakland Hat Trick".

Don't think I'd do it again, but respect the locals for not knocking me out and taking my wallet. Martin Luther King BLVD. Not East Oakland or anything.

The stadium cost about 400 million to build. Last I checked, Pat Bowlen had to pay 95 million dollars (about 25 percent) to the stadiums construction. So the Metro areas of Denver paid 289 million for the stadium through a sales tax. The percent of public money used to build the stadium is the second highest of all Stadiums built since SAF @ Mile high opened. Second to Lucas Oil Stadium.

Was the 6 million annual payout for the naming rights during the Invesco days? I believe that Sports Authority amended Invescos terms of the deal in exchange for putting up more signage around the Stadium.

The original Invesco deal was 20 years $120M, that equals $6M per year. For some reason (I'm too lazy to look) that deal was broke off early. Sports Authority is paying $6M per year now too (probably to complete the terms of the original deal).
