Although the entire debacle is worthy of a University-level course or a book. Not sure what department, however. Would have to be an inter-disciplinary study in sociology, economics, politics, psychology, sports, urban planning,.....and cupcakes.

This is a lesson for every tax-paying citizen in every city, no matter if they are a "sports fan" or not.
My Econ department at U of Manitoba had an Economics of Sports class. I took it and loved it. My prof's thesis was on the public funding of arenas and stadiums, and he served as consultant to the NHL in Winnipeg a few times.
