NFL Super Bowl Robbing Minnesota Blind-Civic Boosterism Gone Wild-Podcast 698

Minneapolis and Saint Paul is happy to be hosting the Super Bowl. Costs for the event are not at the top of the local media’s list of things to talk about. We will in NFL Super Bowl Robbing Minnesota Blind-Civic Boosterism Gone Wild-Podcast 698.

Losing Proposition

Local leaders say this big event will generate 400 million dollars of revenue. Cooler heads say that number is pie in the sky. 400 million doesn’t come close to covering the costs of the US Bank Stadium and The Super Bowl.

Who Pays?

Minneapolis is on the hook for 700 million dollars over the next thirty years with US Bank Stadium. Especially relevant is the fact that the Minnesota Vikings owners got one of the best stadium deals in the league. All they had to do was threaten to move the team to LA. So much for loving the people of Minnesota.

By All Means Kneel

Minneapolis and Saint Paul’s Super Bowl Committee agreed to most of the demands of the NFL for a Super Bowl. On the list? The NFL will pay no state, county or municipal taxes for any Super Bowl revenue. Guess who’s paying?

Evil Corporations Do Not Include The NFL

Truth is the taxpayers of Minneapolis and Saint Paul’s metro and the State of Minnesota are paying for this event. So much for evil corporations politicians like to rail about.

Pleased As Punch For The Super Bowl

Hot dish and frozen lakes are all the rage on the local TV and radio stations. The picture of the cute kid in a Vikings jersey at the Super Bowl Experience in the newspapers.

Meanwhile the NFL is making big deals in the presidential suites of all the local hotels the city and state are paying for.

Oh by the way, they get free police escorts as well.

Boosterism Gone Wild.

Legal Corruption

These days free stuff for corporations is what it’s all about. Subsidies for apartment buildings near the train lines. Subsidies for the Mall of America to build an addition. In addition, sweet deals for businesses juiced in to events like the Super Bowl abound.

The game isn’t football. The game is a legal corruption that robs citizens blind.

A secret deal brought the 2018 Super Bowl to Minneapolis and Saint Paul? Say it ain’t so! The Star Tribune reports that a document has come to light ‘through a source’, clocking in at over one hundred and fifty pages, detailing the behind the scenes and secret demands of the Perfumed Welfare Queen known as the National Football League. Are taxpayers on the hook for free police escorts, and free presidential suites? What about demands for “airport management personnel” available to see to the needs of the owners of private jets? What about Taxpayers; People who certainly won’t be there on Superbowl Sunday 2018 and probably won’t see too many games in the stadium, more than half of which they paid for, because only rich people can afford tickets. Minneapolis Mayor Betzy Hodges says she didn’t know about the deal because it was, you know, secret. Sigh. Minneapolis and Saint Paul will do anything to look like an important city, where it isn’t minus-thirty and snowing around the time of the Superbowl.
