Okay this blows my mind. A QB profits 20 million a year, but people are up in arms if the ENTIRE ORGANIZATION profits 120 million?


Nobody would be "up in arms" about it if the organizations didn't LIE about what they were making to their employees and the nation to justify shutting down operations and paying the talent less. Or LIE about their profitability in order to get government subsidies they clearly don't need.

You remember the lottery winner who won millions of dollars but was still getting food stamps, and when the news interviewed her she said she thought she still deserved them? And how people were up in arms about that? That's pretty much exactly the same thing as the Panthers demanding public money for stadium upgrades.

The Falcons are getting a new stadium thanks to the Owner and Mayor. Guess who's paying for it? Not them...

Blank is paying $800m while Atlanta would be on the hook for $200m

Somebody just sent me a link 10 minutes ago. Apparently, Blank will only be paying 650 million. The city of Atlanta will be left to pay the rest.

I looked it up. You're right, Georgia Dome is owned by the state.
