The Atlantic: “Nearly all NFL franchises are family-owned, converting public subsidies and tax favors into high living for a modern-day feudal elite.”
I love pro sports, and the NFL in particular, as much as the next person, but this is ridiculous. Of course the common folk will never attempt to stop the insanity because we love watching millionaire sports heroes take to the gridiron to play a game.
Here’s the kicker. We pay to go to the stadium, which isn’t cheap, and if you live in an area with a pro team you pay tax money to build and support luxury stadiums.

Rob, this is one of the reasons you want less government. You can’t get rid of corruption, but if you limit the scope of what government can do, you limit how much of this sort of thing you get.
