The most important thing is that the parking situation doesn't inhibit the growth of the fan base, and doesn't turn off existing fans. So, the more parking options the better.

Westgate offering up 3,000 spaces. Cardinals may add more spots. Hmmmmmmm maybe there will be no revenue for the city from the parking stream. Who knew?

Still, for RSE it's probably more of a headache than anything else.

It was brought up more than once in the megathread that they had been charging $10 to park in Lot G adjacent to the arena for the last two years. Not sure how much revenue was generated for it but it definitely wasn't empty, despite all the other "free" spots at Westgate.

I used to park in Lot B on the other side for game and I can tell you the lots inside of Lot B are usually full on game nights... some is taken up by a private valet parking service for businesses in the arena. The only lots where spots might be readily available are at the north end of Westgate near the theater.
