Your $250m figure is the 'estimated' operating costs of the arena up to 2039 which isnt a number that should be used.

This is the 2nd time that within 2 minutes someone's 'analysis' can easily be proven incorrect with basic research.

In the future, can posters please backup their 'numbers' with actual facts?
The assumption is that that's all there is to it. There's an entire business district in the immediate area that would be devastated, which in itself would trigger massive waves of lawsuits. There's parking, there's bonds for various improvements projects...it's hardly just as simple as "$39 million in damages".
