Your point is well taken but the Marlins just let the city of Miami pay 2 billion dollars for a new stadium and essentially pulled the rug out from under them in less than one year.
This point can't be stressed enough. There should be a federal law prohibiting the taxpayers from funding construction of a new stadium in which the primary inhabitant will be a major professional sports team.

It's theft, pure, unadulterated theft, when team owners convince politicians to use taxpayer money to pay for their stadiums.

I was very proud last year when my fellow Nassau County residents for refused to pay a new Nassau Coliseum.
