I really don't think it's a cost issue.

Please note East Carson street on Sunday night if we win.

I think THAT'S the issue, and I can't necessarily disagree with the city if that's their concern.

Has nothing to do with money:

Quote:
PITTSBURGH (KDKA) ― There's a big possibility that if the Steelers win on Sunday, there will not be a victory parade.

An estimated 250,000 people jammed the streets of downtown Pittsburgh in February of 2006 for their Super Bowl parade.

There were far more people than anyone expected and the crowd was hard to control.

If there's another Super Bowl win, city officials are seriously considering eliminating the parade and perhaps holding a rally or something else that's more secure.

"The last parade that we had did create some public safety problems," Pittsburgh Public Safety Director Michael Huss said. "It was a narrow corridor. We had a crowd that was a lot larger than what we anticipated."

No final decision has been made and officials are reluctant to talk about it. But a parade like the one in 2006 appears unlikely if the Steelers win.

Public safety officials also want to avoid the post-game pandemonium that occurred in 2006 as well when fans flipped four cars and started small fires. Thirty-four people were arrested.

"We want everyone to enjoy the game and hopefully enjoy the victory, but at the same time, we don't want to see any damage done to our neighborhoods," Huss added.

Forbes Avenue and Carson Street will be shutdown Sunday evening.

Steelers could bus back to Pittsburgh and they'd have triple the crowd that saw off the Cards in Phoenix in every major metropolitan area on the way back to Pittsburgh.
Rendell can not run again in 2010. Pennsylvania's constitution prohibits Governor's from seeking a 3rd Term. (Much like the US President Term Rule)

They could ask for a donation to the parade. That could easily help pay for all the problems.

PITTSBURGH -- City sources told Channel 11's Alan Jennings on Wednesday that if the Steelers win the Super Bowl, there won't be a parade in Pittsburgh.

Concerns are that the cost would be a budget buster and the parade would cause safety issues.

A quarter of a million people came down for the last one. Are you trying to tell me, you couldn't get a quarter million people to pay $1 for the parade?

Now I know I am getting a little ahead of myself, but come on!

Does someone want to help me set up a fund to have this parade?

I would think they could at least get some vendors to do business out there and make them pay the city a percentage of royalties for business made during the event... I would think all fans would be up for $1.00 entry fee!
