Re: Stephen Ross says Tony Sparano damaged the Dolphins
People here are hurting & have just been fleeced in the past with stadium & arena deals. His timing is poor (no pun intended). How much can we be bleeded.
The stadium referendum would have ZERO impact to the pocketbooks of the residents of South Florida... so I'm not sure what the point of bringing this up is.
The tax increase being proposed will be to a stream of revenue that by law cannot used for anything other than tourism initiatives, so it has no impact to schools or police officers etc etc.
The Dolphins are paying for most of the renovations themselves, 70% of them when it is all said and done.
And the tax increase is not going to go to the stadium alone as most of it will go right back into the tourism industry.
Whether you agree or disagree with the stadium referendum, let's at least get the facts straight when discussing it. I'm seeing a lot of people not bothering to do that.
