    If the taxpayers in a locality or a state want to subsidize a football stadium then that's their decision to do so as long as the rest of us are not on the hook for it. Far as I'm concerned, I don't like subsidies of any kind to anybody and whatever tax rules and deductions there are ought to be uniform for everybody, no special favors.
