I think @IlliniInBuckeyeState may have a point. Arlington is a no-brainer for us but not so for NW. Not sure 50% of whatever they'd get at Arlington would cover 100% of what they would get at home, even a smaller home. And 50% of what - I'm sure the Bears / Arlington Heights / TIF District / whoever take some off the top.That's true. But maybe if the teams agree to split ticket and concessions revenue every year maybe that's a better deal than what they will be making at their new shoebox once every other year.
And there would be a need to justify the investment in that new NW home also, by holding the games there.
How do the skyboxes work? If NW is the home team, do the Ryan Field skybox owners automatically get an allocation of boxes at Arlington? I wouldn't think so but admittedly don't know. Small % of fans but big $$$ impact. After all, those are the main reason for all these stadium renovations.
