I guess this is one part of the puzzle we'll have to see how it pans out over the season.

Season tix/regular buyers probably knew it was coming, certainly. I think it's going to be the "casual'/walk up who RSE is really going to be trying to attract-depending on how much they've followed things, or not-their reactions could be anything from "I guess they had to charge for parking" to "25 dollars a game parking-I thought they were trying to encourage people to come!" (in other words, from completely subdued to completely shocked).

It's the casuals and new fans they are trying to attract that will be the determiners IMO on how much the price of parking affects the attendance.

As was mentioned before in the old thread-between now and 5 years, they are going to start paying a LOT more in parking, raised ticket prices, concessions, ect ect-and it will be seen what effect it has and whether people will start paying said higher prices.
