No argument here. It's why I said the federal government should step in and draw some lines. As long as cities and states have the power to tax then it's a bottomless pit they think are drawing from to pay the price of admission for pro sports. Put some federal regulations in place to slap their hands when they reach for the cookie jar, make it equal for all, and maybe this genie can be put back in the bottle.
You'll get no argument from me that there is value to having entertainment, especially national stage entertainment, in Indpls (or any town). The question is, just how much value and where is the stopping point?
