Bears fans unhappy with ticket price increase and schedule changes

Chicago Bears fans are expressing frustration over ticket price increases, especially with the team slating three exhibition games away from Soldier Field and an "extra" home game moved to London. This comes amid efforts to generate interest in a new stadium, as Chicago's Mayor Brandon Johnson navigates accessibility concerns. Additionally, the NFL has partnered with Netflix for exclusive Christmas Day game streams, which will still be accessible over-the-air in local markets. Broadcast changes are noted, with Tom Brady joining FOX and Jason Kelce moving to ESPN. Former Bears scout Josh Lucas returns to the NFL with the Cleveland Browns.
By the Numbers
