    Right their with you. It's a problem because they know there are only a few franchises, and they're a huge part of the civic pride and big money. They know towns will do quite a lot to keep them even if it means screwing the people.

      Yeah. I mean, I still love watching Texans play, but it's also important to be aware of these kind of practices and that this is a big issue that needs to be fixed. It's like John Oliver points out in the video: less well-off cities, like Detroit, simply do not have the means to support constructung/renovating stadiums for teams that they're hardly receiving revenue from.

        If you look at places like Cleveland, where I'm from, they have 3 franchises. They will sell them out or come close to selling them out every time, even thought they haven't won anything since 1960s. They do have one of the best musical Orchestras in the world and can barley sell out half the concert. I love my Browns, Tribe and Cavs, but man the 3 stadiums/arenas seem like such a waste of money. I don't know what the solution is but I think that the money spent on the teams could be better spent on infrastructure for the city of Cleveland.

        Just my 2cents
