What you seem to be failing to understand here is that they couldn't care less what they got back because they don't care about competing. This was about dumping money anyway they could.

They backloaded those deals to give the city the impression that they cared about competing and show the public that they warranted them paying for a new stadium. And then they stabbed them in the back. It's a disgrace to the sport.
