Interesting article on public funding and tax breaks for stadiums from Patrick Hruby at Sports on Earth. Basically sports stadium construction has no impact on the economy of a local area, and can actually decrease the average incomes in your town. Buyer beware. Most, if not all, public investment in stadiums in recent years has been a disaster.

I'm sure we could commission TL Hocking to refute the claims made in this article, right Glendale?
So then by your own argument, Edmonton and Quebec city are about to waste millions on building new arenas.

Or does it compute differently up north???
