    It's pretty much a blackmail scheme when a city wants them to play in the area.. The govt must blackmail them with showers of money...If not, no go Joe..

    What kinds of subsidies are given to the NFL and why? Usually the subsidies help the overall public socially and economically.

    Wouldn't the money be better spent on the poor instead of the wealthy NFL. People complain about giving money for food stamps and welfare but are more than happy to give it to the NFL
