Sports facilities should come at a cost to users

When sports facilities are built they are constructed from rates collected by councils. 
Tricia's insight:

Here is a perspective on where subsidies should come from for sports facilities. Should all taxpayers be responsible for the construction and upkeep of facilities even if they do not use it?

Faculty critical of athletic budget - The Herald Dispatch

Tricia's insight:

These teachers are already underpaid, and still yet, more money is given to the athletic department. Perhaps, academics needs to be recentered in our universities when the sports teams are not even self sufficient, and certainly are not bringing in money for the school.

Sustainability is all the rage when it comes to building these new sport arenas/facilities. There has been more focus associated with ADA regulations and eco conscious building materials.

As the St. Louis Cardinals designed new Busch Stadium early in the 2000s, the September 11 attacks remained in their minds.
Tricia's insight:

So much has changed in the quality of security all over the country in light of terroist attacks over the last century. Security in sports facilities is no exception.

Joel Roberts's curator insight, December 22, 2012 6:55 PM

Sept 11 has forever changed our security format in this country. Our sporting events are no different so although the search procedure is tedious it is needed to ensure safety at these events.

Joshua Evans's curator insight, January 17, 2014 10:13 AM

Security can never be thorough enough. At an event like a game, there are thousands of potential victims if a terrorist attack happens. Always think security. 

Jason Cain's curator insight, March 22, 2014 10:47 PM

Security has been as important as the teams that are playing since the 9/11 attacks on the United States. It is important to keep everyone safe especially in large crowds where attacks would involve a lot of people at one time.
