I would not support any of the big sports venues. Owners can pay for a stadium if they want it, they can hold cities hostage to their demands if they so desire. If the cities buy into it, ah well there truly is a sucker born every minute. I am gratified that there are players who will stand up, like Richard Sherman, and I support what he says. I am happy people like him speak out.

Some of the communities they plunk these stadiums down in need help and renewal. Instead they are routinely invaded by ardent fans, drunks, garbage and detris from a game. They get nothing out of having a stadium in their midst. Let Vegas have them, more of the cheap, neon hype that a lot of us are not interested in anyway.
