    Seriously? They charge *FORTY* dollars to park a car in the middle of nowhere, where there is absolutely no lack of land?

    Are you KIDDING me?

    How on earth has this gone on without RIOTS? Isn't anyone else completely outraged?

    Yay, something to ***** about besides the pats themselves. Parking is ridiculous, what can you do...

    you can park where ever you like, no one is forcing you to park at the stadium. paying that much to park is a bit annoying but people are free to voice their displeasure with their wallets by not going to the games. so far that has not been the case.

    When I went to my one and only Patriots game back in 2003 I was absolutely stunned to hand over $40 to park. I pay less for my NFL Season Ticket than I would just for parking at 8 home games. While NFL teams have the right to charge what they want - shame on them.

    If you have four people going to the game, that's only $10 a person. That's not that bad.

    Heck, even if you go with one other person, it's $20. Should you really go to a pro-football game expecting to spend <$40 (minus tickets)?

    It's been that way for years. Some lots charge $50. Someone needs to set up a satellite shuttle lot at $15 a head to bus people in and out.

    I agree it is outrageous. It goes along with high ticket prices and

    expensive beer and food inside the stadium. Despite these prices,

    I give Bob Kraft credit for building the stadium on his own and not

    charging season ticket holders for seat licenses.

    Wow, that's a month worth of televised games you can watch from your couch with a better angle...

    Course I live hundreds of miles away, so maybe my view of it all is skewed...

    You can spend a lot less and take the train ($10 I believe), but you run the risk of arriving near or after kickoff...

    This has been going on since before PP opened up. It's greed, pure and simple. Used to be that the small outlying private lots charged less than the stadium lots, but no longer. I use an outlying private lot because it's easier/quicker to get in and out and it's a nice place to tailgate. Back when I started using it in 1994, they charged $10. Now, $40. PP hasn't changed the cost of parking.

    They charge $40 - $50 for summer concerts as well. The tickets for Gillette Stadium events typically sell well, so they charge you to park since there are almost no alternatives to get to the game aside from the game train (not applicable for concerts). It's part of the cost of buying tickets that many infrequent visitors forget about until they are in line to pay.

    Carpooling is your best bet.

    I'd rather watch it from home, the seats are better.
