    Public money for stadiums is bad enough, but this has to be the worst of all.

    This is one from the we'll-all-be-deader-than-crabmeat-by-the-time-this-shit-comes-due school of debt repayment. And public servants promoted this.

    Porn for Starman.
     
  6. I remember when Maricopa County officials got flak for a sales tax to pay for Chase Field. That tax raised $235 million in two years.

    Cheaper to default.

    The best part of that payment plan is by the time they start making payments in 2026, the Marlins will either have moved out of state or demanded more taxpayer money to renovate renovations paid for by this loan.

    The best thing would just to have a couple of cops pull the owner over for a busted taillight and then have shot dead resisting arrest. Renegotiation would be a breeze.

    You beat me to it.

    What are the odds that an MLB team is playing in this ballpark by the time the loan is payed off?

    Very dumb way to fund it.

    We're dealing with people who believed Jeffrey Loria would field a competitive team. Buyers did not beware.

    A good Dexter episode would be disposing of a serial franchise killer.
