The comments on al.com will rot your brain.

Mr. Parker has no idea of the depth of the problems that reside in Legion field, with spalling concrete looming large among them.

I believe it will cover the only proper thing left - implosion.

That's actually pretty typical for the year-to-year "renovation" of LF beyond the yearly maintenance costs anyway..

It takes a lot of cash to paint over the flaking paint & chipping concrete.

As with ANY old building, annual maintenance costs never get less. The longer Legion Field remains the only viable stadium of its size, the more expensive its upkeep will continue to be. That is why most of us don't buy old homes unless we have the skills to do renovations ourselves or the "deep pockets" to pay someone (like the Property Brothers) to do it for us.

Right now, Legion Field is "the only game (site) in the metro area". There are presently three choices to replace it, but none have approached "shovel meets dirt" status.

We spend money every year on LF. I've seen us spend from 500k to three million. Nothing new.

Wow with all that upkeep seems like a Modern new Stadium could of already have been built but until they do the upkeep has to be done to keep it the viable option otherwise their is nothing and legion is much better then nothing with all the History and all. Sure its still has a adequate infrastructure in it. Soldier Field is still standing and deems to be safe for attendance. Right.
