    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“A stupendous amount of money goes into public stadiums and arenas - probably somewhere upwards of $2 billion a year, when you count all the local, state and federal money that goes into it. And the public does not get back any sort of benefit close to what it's putting into it.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“It's an inequitable deal, but teams continue to use the leverage of, if you want a team, well, you've got to play by our rules to extract money from the public.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“Building stadiums is something that appeals to local politicians and mayors, especially, because it's something that you can show off. You can put a plaque on a stadium, but you can't put a plaque on reduced first-grade class sizes. You can't go sit in the front row on opening day at the new grade school and wave at the crowd, but you can at a baseball stadium.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“The more I talk to people, the more they confirm that both inside and outside of sports journalism there's a fair amount of awareness that it's not journalism as it's supposed to be.”

    I Like this quote I dislike this quote“That's why you didn't see, for example, the use of amphetamines discussed by sports journalists for decades - because it was something that wasn't in the public awareness. If somebody had started writing about the fact that athletes were popping amphetamines left and right, they would have been in serious trouble, and no one would have talked to them. That would have put their ability to do the rest of their job at risk.”
