This reminds me alot of North Wilkesboro Speedway. It wasn't so much the fact that New Hampshire was a new racetrack for Nascar to go to with more stands, it was more the fact that the speedway itself would run out of water on Sundays during the race. The town of North Wilkesboro/Wilkesboro and the county refused to build a pipeline from Wilkesboro to the racetrack. By essentially refusing this, NW could no longer expand its capacity, which it could have much like Bristol or atleast Richmond in terms of capacity.

I know the county of Wilkes lost $9million each year from the revenue that the 2 races brought in and that was in 1996-97. Today that's probably $20million a year.

While it does suck to pay out that money to fund the stadium, what the city would lose each year would be far worse.

Because studies have shown that public funding of taxpayer stadiums actually loses governments money.

They can come make minimum wage where I work...legal or not. Plenty of openings.

Or the government can get smart and start farming the medians along the highways using the labor of those that want a hand-out and are able-bodied.

Piss in this cup and show me you aren't on drugs and you can have a job...otherwise good luck.

I already give up 42% of my paycheck to the Gov. I can't give anymore.

If these people had a decent life skill they wouldn't have to piss in a cup, im high as fug right now I'm still makeing 50k a year.

This is complete bullshit by the way. Take the money from Golden Leaf foundation that has taken 600 million dollars of taxpayer money and we could have two new stadiums and not change the state budget at all.

BTW, Republicans should HATE this. This is a local bill that big brother government in Raleigh has stepped in to slap their hands and tell them how to run their local government. It goes against everything that Republicans supposedly stand for.

Any how...I wish Mr Richardson luck in finding ways to better his billion dollar business.

Did you know he could raise $150M for the improvements by just raising ticket prices by $20 over 10 years.

We have perhaps the cheapest NFL franchise in the nation in terms of taxpayer money. Raising ticket prices would be even worse. Blackouts, and perhaps an actual loss of revenue with a disenfranchised fanbase does not bode well for long term stability for a small market team.
