Don't believe every thing you read from every piece of literature or study you find. a lot of it is BS and will always be written to have it own spin to serve ones own needs..
I live in the real world as well and speak to lots of people who need city services more than they need pro sports teams.

I talk to a lot of Winnipeg natives here in Calgary who tell me that Winnipeg did fine without the Jets. There's lots to do there besides go to hockey games.

I'd personally like to see some hard numbers on how many city tax dollars are generated for money invested in arenas and sports teams so I will, indeed be checking out at least one of the resources mentioned earlier and maybe you should too.
