A book about the public funding of stadiums was mentioned in the forum some time last year. Anyone able to remember the title?
TIA

The author was Gregg Easterbrook.

The article he wrote on the subject was called "How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers".

http://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/arc ... rs/309448/

He also wrote a book about the NFL's impact called "The King of Sports".

Fellow is one of the honest guys left in sports journalism. Pointed out huge inconsistencies in the lies presented daily by Goodell & NE during cheating scandal. If you have any doubt that NE taped Rams pre SB practices read his old columns. He also explains how the taxpayer is financing the stadiums yet the teams are tax exempt. It's a total corrupt setup, NFL owners have an occupancy cost that's a fraction of what it should be.
