If I misinterpreted your intent then I retract my remark. But it's not something I care to make light of for crass lols. The people of Charlotte and surrounding areas never should have lost the franchise. Who knows what could have been in that lost time. To say it was downhill from there would be an understatement. George Shinn knows he's trash for what he did.
There have been innumerable studies on the effects of cities subsidizing stadium construction and across the economic spectrum, from fresh to saltwater economics, it never pans out. it's always a waste of money.
when you're having to justify it with 4th and 5th degree effects you should probably just stop posting.

They do. Especially if they are used to host multiple events per year. Not only are you collecting taxes on a billion dollar facility, you’re collecting tourism taxes in every hotel room sold, food and beverage tax on every meal served, beer and wine tax on every drink sold, in addition to general sales benefit to each restaurant, hotel, gas station, etc patrons visit before and after the event. Occupancy taxes alone generate millions per year in revenue.
