How much more tourism will a new arena generate when we already have an arena that supposedly sells out all the time?
Also, how beneficial is it really if it's in the vicinity as the other stadiums in town?
Aren't those businesses already benefiting from sports stadiums? Wouldn't it be good to share whatever wealth an arena might bring with another section of town?
I can see the sense in an arena/entertainment district, I suppose. But to me this just screams taxpayer boondoggle.
