How did this happen. Taxpayers go on the hook for 300-400 million dollar stadiums. Teams get this stadium free, the billionare owners make a fortune, sports players making 100 million a year etc.. and the jobs the stadium creates are minimum wage jobs paid by the county. Why do people vote for this? And then you hear people complaining about teachers and public services being cut or taxes having to be raised. New Jersey is still paying debt on a stadium built in the 70s.
