re: How will NFL downturn impact subsidies?? Will Benson want more? - I B Freeman
[quote]Aren't NFL stadiums pretty much a losing proposition for tax payers?[/quote] Yes and the subsidies on top of that simply compound the loss. Our subsidies are somewhat disguised after the crony deal Jindal did with Benson. Instead of richer direct subsidies he ended up with buildings re...
