On a related note, the whole business of leagues bilking local governments out of huge money is not a new thing. Jeff Passan described it as the system Reinsdorf invented, which only makes me hate that man even more. The biggest example of such corruption, in my mind, is the new Soldier Field. It cost 600M+ of almost all city funding to build, and it seats the fewest of any stadium in the NFL...
Required viewing for those interested in learning more about how leagues attempt to strong-arm municipalities is Sonicsgate, which (despite continuing the obnoxious trend of adding 'gate' to the end of all stories involving corruption) details how the NBA broke a whole bunch of its contracts with Seattle and Washington, committed numerous underhanded business deals with the Sonics' ownership, and stole the Seattle Supersonics from the City of Seattle. It is extremely infuriating to watch, but is an incredibly well done film.
It's free to watch, but a bit long. Still worth it
