Cold-weather games might be no more for the Chicago Bears.

According to a report by the Chicago Sun-Times, the mayor of Chicago floated an idea to put a dome on Soldier Field.

"Mayor Lori Lightfoot offered Monday to put a dome on Soldier Field, at a potential cost of $2.2 billion, in a desperate attempt to keep the Bears in Chicago or save face if they leave for Arlington Heights," they reported.

NFL fans appear to be against it.

"You can’t be serious," one fan tweeted.

"This would be an EGREGIOUS misuse of money and Lighfoot should be recalled immediately if it were to happen. Thankfully, it’s extremely unlikely," one fan added.

"Is putting a dome on Soldier Field supposed to be viewed as a *good* thing?" another fan wrote.

Don't do it, Chicago.
