Maybe nine out of ten economists agree, but one out of one here thinks along with the nine; subsidies only help owners and players, not the little people that have to pay for it.

I wish I had found this article earlier. It touches on some key points on why public subsidies are not beneficial to the community. Also, it mentions how some companies do not take all factors into consideration when they assess subsidy effects on a community.

Kevin Porter's curator insight, February 21, 2014 2:21 PM

New rules and regulations adopted by the NFL are being enforced around the league.  One of the big changes is the bag policy at the stadium.  I personally attended a NFL game at the Broncos stadium in 2013, and I was permitted to bring my black backpack in the stadium with me.  I would no longer be able to do that if I went to a game this past season.  Clear bags are the only kind permitted at the stadium.  This is a result of the Boston Marathon bombing.
