We already over-pay to see a mediocre team on the field! If Jerry wants more money then I'm like most of the people in the state, sell or leave!

. This has been rumored! I love having a NFL team here its just the owner is a complete moron. Its his team and has the right to do whatever he wants but to try and get the state to impose a tax to fund a new stadium. Dude needs to be man enough to stand face to face with whom he wants to take from while his pockets overflow from ripping people off!

Rhetorical question time: If these revovations/new stadiums were such great deals, why can't these team owners get their own private financing?

I know how you feel. We're about to lose our sacramento kings because of the worst owners ever. The city of sac, the state of California, the NBA, and private investors were ready to pay for 75% of the new arena then the owners backed out at the last second and struck a deal with seattle to sell the kings. The Miami marlins had the state pay for their stadium by spewing empty promises of high spending on their team. After one season in the new stadium it's back to low salary spending. You can't trust these billionaires. They got that way by screwing people in the first place
