Dolphins CEO: We’d be stupid to spend our money on stadium, which is why we want to spend yours | Field of Schemes

Dolphins CEO: We’d be stupid to spend our money on stadium, which is why we want to spend yours | Field of Schemes | Sports Facility Management 4329003 | Scoop.it

"It’s always special when somebody in the sports industry slips and says what they really think about the economics of stadiums. Via Miami Herald columnist Glenn Garvin (who is totally not only getting his name dropped because in the same article he called this site “informative if horrifying”), here’s whatMiami Dolphins CEO Mike Dees said on Sunday when asked if his team’s $200 million public subsidy request for renovations to its privately owned stadium isn’t just “welfare for billionaires”:

“Just because somebody is wealthy enough doesn’t mean he should invest money in a way that is unwise,” Dees declared.

As Garvin goes on to note: “He could hardly have been more straightforward: Unwise investments are strictly for the taxpaying saps. NFL and Major League Baseball owners certainly didn’t get to be billionaires by risking their own money on outlandishly expensive boondoggles. They use ours instead.”

We’ve heard this before in other cities — we can’t spend our own money on it, it’d be a huge money-loser —but somehow this seldom seems to translate into a realization that if a stadium (or a stadium renovation) can’t bring in enough new revenues to pay off its own costs, then somebody is inevitably going to end up losing money on the thing. But then, people seem to have trouble with this concept in general."

"Welfare for Billionaires" the honest trust sheds light on public subsidies.

The Ryno's curator insight, February 15, 2013 12:20 PM

It isn't really shocking to hear Sports teams want someone else to foot the bill for stadium crap, it's just moronic for a team CEO to say it out loud. Even worse, the fact Dees suggests any stadium improvements are an "unwise investment" speaks volumes about the shadiness.
