Blah Blah Blah. "Let them pay for it." "If It's such a good deal then let it be privately funded." What you folks don't get is that the profits coming from having this stadium are going to be complex. It's not all coming from just the stadium, it's coming from the increase in sales taxes from more money being spent, the rise in property values, and the possible rise in hotel tax (even from just the out of town teams that have to stay overnight). Do I think $42 million is too much? Absolutely. Is there a number I think would be right, you bet. The $42 million was the max that was said that it would cost. Let's see if the city council has the bargaining skills to make this work. Too many people have been narrow minded at the sticker shock. It's like buying a car or a house, you have to negotiate and see if you can get the deal that would best work for you.
