should the government fund an NHL hockey arena with taxpayers money?
is it right to use tax money to pay for an arena for a NHL team when the players and owners are extremely wealthy?
No! Trouble is that the lawmakers look at it as an investment with the ROI being jobs and tax revenues from sales, as well as with the fear that if they don't provide an incentive, the team will go somewhere that does. There should be an understanding among cities that you don't pander to these guys and just let them pick the location that genuinely provides a market for their entertainment services without being unduly influenced by money being thrown at them.
No. As much as I love hockey it needs to remain privatized.
