The team's estimate, which doesn't include infrastructure work around the stadium, puts the tab at $350 million.But according to research by Judith Grant Long, a Harvard University professor who studies stadium finance, the cost to the public was closer to $555 million once other expenditures, such as special elevated parking structures, are factored in. No other NFL stadium had ever received that much public financing. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
