If tax dollars are going to subsidize stadiums and build infrastructure around them then the organizations that own and use them damn well better be paying taxes. The economic impact On a city is minimal and the ones who benefit is limited to shareholders in the companies that win the contracts. The fact that sports games are now used as a propaganda tool for the military; by paying to play the national anthem, military appreciation days, and fly overs is disturbing... and yet they still aren’t paying for those social services is unacceptable. How long are we going to allow this xenophobic mentality control us by infiltrating entertainment and driving a wedge between humans with nationalism. Churches should be paying taxes too, especially if they are paying pastors of mega churches exorbitant salaries or if they are organizations like Scientology.
