Gov. Brian Sandoval (R) on Wednesday said he will call the legislature into session to consider using state money for the new stadium, along with separate measures to deal with an expected budget shortfall and education funding.It seems to me that if Nevada has a budget shortfall and education problems, iti should be pouring its money into those things before it builds a stadium. Don't bother telling me that if the state builds the stadium, the stadium will bring in outside money in the form of hotel rooms, restaurant revenue.. If the NFL built the stadium with its own money, the hotels would still fill up, the restaurants would be busy. The state doesn't need to get involved with that. If the NFL's business model relys on public stadiums, then it is a poor business model. Perhaps they should start paying the players less to create controversy. I'm nust sayin'.
Personally, I don't watch much football. I particularly don't give a crap about the NFL. Inn my mind, they're a bunch of overpaid prima-donnas playing a child's game. I do like high school and college ball, and I may watch a part of tthe Super Bowl, but in the main, I believe NFL ball to be a big yawner.
And, I don't see why taxpayers should be involved in it at all.
