Re: Study finds Super Bowl contributed $333 million to South Fla
Where did the 333 million dollars go and who the hell did it benefit. That is the one thing that just burns me up with these professional teams.
They always want public funding for there new stadiums and arenas. Take que from what the Giants did and figure out a way to fund a stadium or arena without tax payers money.
Joe Robbie was built on private money, and all the upgrades were paid for by Huizenga, iirc.
And I'm sure that the $333 million went to local businesses, they're not going to hand it out to the local residents or anything.
Building the Marlins stadium on public money was a bit of headscratcher for me, it's not going to host any events that compare to the Super Bowl and it will probably be half empty 90% of the time. At least in upgrading SunLife we could maintain our spot in the Super Bowl rotation which has proven to have a big impact on the local economy. That being said, I still think it's hypocritical of Goodell and a roof isn't that much of a necessity
