The owner of the Miami Dolphins (worth $2 billion) is demanding $400 million from the Taxpayers so he can put a roof on his stadium.
The owner of the Carolina Panthers is also demanding Taxpayer money for stadium upgrades with the tacit threat of taking the team to LA.
It is insane. Billionaire owners and millionaire players want and demand OUR money, they should just earn it and pay for their own stuff. Sandra Flukes, all of them
The NFL has probably gotten far more money from not having a team in Los Angeles than it ever would have earned from having a team there. Every time a team wants a new stadium it drops hints of LA Bengals, LA Vikings, LA Panthers, LA (fill in just about any other team) and the city officials grab the taxpayers by the ankles and shake them for money. Once LA has a team the threat of having the Portland Panthers just isn't as scary to cities.
(Portland picked because it is the largest metro area other than LA which doesn't have a NFL team in a couple hours' drive).
