PARKING THE ISSUE: In Houston, John McClain noted Goodell “doesn’t want to get involved in the controversy involving the Astrodome, but he does think an additional 2,500 parking spaces would help Houston’s bid to get Super Bowl LI.” A recent study commissioned by Texans Owner Bob McNair and the Houston Livestock Show & Rodeo revealed that the Astrodome “could be demolished and replaced with 2,500 parking spaces for $29 million and change.” Goodell said, “That issue is for the community to decide, but I think having an extra 2,500 parking spaces would enhance Houston’s bid” (CHRON.com, 3/20).
