    As if plans for statewide amnesty for illegal aliens wasn't bad enough, this from the San Jose Mercury News:
    Santa Clara, 49ers announce deal to pay for stadium - San Jose Mercury News
    NFL to pay for new stadium? Nope.
    Tax on NFL ticket holders to pay for a new stadium? Nope.
    Non Football fans to pay for new stadium? Yes!

    You can't tell me that the wealthy owner of the SF 49er's is any different than the welfare recipient with their hand out asking for taxpayer money. Sickening, just sickening. I suppose he is claiming that he is creating jobs too?

    I don't have a problem with the wealthy people (the people who pay the most taxes) paying for a new football stadium. Isn't that what the leftists want? Wealthy people to pay for everything?

    The comment of the Wealthy paying the most taxes will always be there no matter what tax system we use. Even a flat tax. the guy making 20k paying ten percent will not pay as much as the guy paying 10 percent on 100k.

    I think that is disgusting. Let the owners and NFL build their own stadiums. At times like this, that is just gross. But, more bread and circuses from the govt.

    They do. But those would be along the lines of "Hotdog Vendor" and "Janitor".

    The NFL gets multi billion dollar TV contracts, they have enough money to build their own stadium if they want it.

    I was reading a Bio on the Pittsburg Steelers owner Dan Rooney and he was talking about his efforts to get a new stadium so that the Steelers can stay "competitive". All I could think was; "The old 'uncompetitive' stadium didn't stop them from winning 4 Super Bowls in the 70's".

    Yes. And building a stadium only for football to play 15 games a year in is absurd. Now, we have to have a separate stadium for football, baseball, hockey or whatever.

    Do it the way the Packers are doing it. They are selling stock shares this week to the public in order to make millions in renovations to Lambeau Field.

    This is not new. It happens in every city. The owners reasoning is if you dont built us a new one we will leave to a city that will and that the stadium generates money for the city and business around it
