You come across as a jerk but I'll respond anyways...

Several independent studies have been done on this subject which shows that the IRR a metropolitan area receives for its investment is generally below that of alternative projects. Roger Noll and Andrew Zimbalist (Economists) have done exhaustive studies on this subject and the results indicate that sports facilities attract neither enough tourists or new industry to offset the cash outflow of financing/building new stadiums.
