Default $30 million

$30 million from stadium
How much will this impact them?
Could anything like that happen to us?

Doesn't sound like it will effect them much.

"The team's front office has said it would simply eat the loss if it loses the funds, which amount to less than 3 percent of the cost of the $1.2 billion stadium that is set to open in 2014."

1.2 billion, wow.

2 teams are using it though. glad someone is standing up and spending money where its needed. ive heard there have been several economic studies on the effects of public funding of stadiums and its never been worth it financially for the city, wonder if its true.
sad that owners can leverage cities to spend their money on the owners financial gains instead of spending it on actual important stuff.

50 million just for little tv screen on the backs of seats?? The place will have roughly 68,500 seats. Even if those screens cost 1,000 each that's only 68,500 dollars. Why the hell would it cost 50 million

Labor? Can you imagine what wiring up 68,000 seats will cost. And have to do it in a way to give access to all of them in case of repairs. Seems a little useless option to me, at least for a football game. If your gonna watch tv just stay home.

The funniest thing is I bet all the contractors involved in building the stadium will come from out of state. So the one point whatever billion dollars will support another states economy.

That is what I was thinking, holy **** what an undertaking the wiring will be on that.

I appluad them for it,I wouldn't call it stealing,I would call it making sure a private business is not getting too big of a bail out.

math isn't one of strengths,at 1,000 per seat that would be $68,500,000.00. yes 68 million 500 thousand. the SSIU must be giving them one heck of a deal if they are only charging 50 million.

Your math skills need work. 68500 seats with 1000 dollar screens is 68,500,000

just what I was thinking ..

Glad I moved away from that loony tunes place a long time ago..

God only knows how much state taxes (income and sales) I saved..

They seem to think they need 30 million for teachers if I read that correct..I'm guessing the sales tax and misc revenues during the games would be approaching much of that level.. something that would be sustainable..

To bad the owners of the teams did not know this before hand they could have moved to a another more business friendly area.

But then it is better to be PC than smart..

68,500 x 1,000 = 68,500,000

68 million

Under the current cost if it's $50 million, each screen is worth $730.

When you are off on your math by a factor of a thousand, you kind of deserve to get a little bit of razzing don't you think?

Yeah I'm surprisingly in agreement with Aga, you were way off, like hella off, and have to expect a bit of a razzing. It's all in good fun, and I do commend you for keeping the original post up there.

In honor of your failure though, I have to post this.

I don't see Agas posts since he's on ignore. In fact 90% of OM doesn't see his posts.
