delhommey, I will refund every tax dollar Jerry has ever stolen from you. Just let me know where to send the check.
What is your address in Austin again?
If we look at last year would be about $66.30 combining the estimates on the 3% hotel tax and the 1% food and bev tax in my trips to Charlotte last year.
I'd have to drag out the expense reports to get the exact number, but as I was reimbursed for the grand majority of that money and the only fair thing would be you writing that check to my employer directly, and as it would be tricky to figure exactly how much of those taxes went straight to the stadium, it would be a pointless enterprise.
Look, I like the NFL better than 99% of the population. But to think that these stadium deals are anything less than a shake down is to reveal the deep seeded juvenile need to believe in owners as collection of benevolent Santa Clauses.
Thanks for the team. Use your own money to make more money, not the tax payers. Pretty simple.
I'm just asking that he not try and pilfer hundreds of millions of dollars of tax money that could be used for roads and schools so he can build a cathedral of profits for himself and also try to threaten to take the game away so that he can win the pointless game of "He who does the richest wins!" by squeezing money he could never spend away from employees who are probably ruining their brains for life. (Don't believe me? Listen to Phil Simms announce a game).
But hey the guy visits players in the hospital and likes kids and puppies, so whatever. Pilfer away!
