OT:NFL CBA Helps Teams Get Stadium Funding

I made the same topic here on this board, but received no hits...

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...granted-by-nfl

Quote:
The Green Bay Packers will benefit from an NFL stadium construction program included in the league's new collective bargaining agreement.

NFL owners have approved the Green Bay Packers' request for $58 million to help renovate Lambeau Field, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello confirmed in an email Tuesday.

Packers President and CEO Mark Murphy said it is getting harder to secure public money, so the league and the players had to be creative to ensure stadiums don't become outdated.

"Stadium financing was a priority in the bargaining process," he said. "Our bargaining committee wanted to make sure teams and players continued to invest in stadiums and make fan experience positive. Everybody benefits when we build new stadiums and renovate stadiums."
I don't know if the NHL's new CBA has this feature....

have you followed the edmonton arena issue?

if the NHL had this feature, it will help owners such as darryl katz, to get this funding without asking tax payers to fund it..

i believe, unfortuately, the NHL's new CBA does not have this feature...

The NFL needs it more than the NHL. An indoor arena can be used for a multitude of sports (hockey, basketball, arena football, lacrosse, and plaenty of others) in addition to hosting shows and concerts and other civic events. By contrast, a football stadium would be used for eight games a year, plus the odd outdoor concert or visit from the Pope, which I'd imagine makes it more difficult to secure public funding.

Still would be nice to see the league take some initiative to take responsibility for its own infrastructure, tho.

While I do agree the amount of discretionary funds the NFL as a league has as opposed to the NHL is incredible.
