    Interesting list, but I think they aren't looking at the whole picture when they omit PSL costs. Out of the top 6 teams on that list, the Patriots are the only ones without hefty PSL expenses on most (if not all) of their seating.

    Absolutely! It's like looking only at the salary in a player contract with a huge signing bonus. Ridiculous. (Publicly financed stadiums might be considered, too.)

    At the end of the day, it's simple supply and demand I would think. The product put out on the field plus purchasing power of fans where a team is based would make up a significant chunk of the difference between a FCI for a team at the top of that list versus another at the bottom.

    Living in the DFW Metroplex, I can honestly say that what they charge for Parking is ridiculous. If the Rangers were smart, they'd open their lots on Sundays and they'd make a ton of money since they aren't that far from one another.

    Same with the Arlington Convention Center. Neither of which are affiliated with the Cowboys and both have huge amounts of Parking. Hell, Six Flags could also open their reserve lots and do the same thing..

    One of the reasons the Cowboys probably charge so much is that there is no public transportation to the stadium, to my knowledge.

    EDIT: Just saw that the Cowboys already have an agreement with the Rangers to use the 12K spaces there on game days.. So the Cowboys have 24000 spaces available to them on game days, not including the parking at the Convention Center or at Six Flags..If I'm a Six Flags Season Ticket holder, I park in one of the back lots and walk.. It's only $10.

    The Patriots stadium is privately funded, unlike most pro sports teams. A % of the parking fees still go to the State of MA for road work that they did for the new stadium.

    Having said that, it's still a very expensive day for the average guy to go to the game.

    I find it interesting that we focus on Dallas parking when New England costs for the rest are the highest in the nfl. As it has been pointed out, there is lots of alternative parking available for those attending Dallas games.
