And cities down here DO pay large amounts of money for their teams' buildings as well as provide all sorts of other economic incentives for teams to remain in their cities so what are you talking about?

As for this being common practice as I just said ask Forsberg the last time he paid 30k to play 2 games in NY or Fla and let me know since you are so informed on the situation.
