Sufficient to come even close to paying for the facilities?
Cincinnati and Hamilton County are getting screwed on the Bengals' stadium and one of the terms of the agreement to keep the Bengals was that there couldn't be a tax on the tickets to pay for the stadium if sales tax revenues came up short.
I think the best thing to happen would be for cities to just start refusing to pay for these millionaires' playgrounds. If you have fewer cities willing to pay than you have teams, then the threats of moving the team won't work even on those cities that feel they must pay.
The general problem is that hotels tend to benefit from a sports team pitch that runs year-round. If you run a one-sports team operation...there’s no stable income. If you had a smart planning staff and could work up the numbers for hotel taxes...it’d probably all pay off in the end.
