Your opinion counts most, since it's the minority.

To be fair, I'll bet he does dick amount of research.

He's probably heavily involved in the joke writing, though

Because this shit is like crack to people, that's why.

And he's not proposing legislation to stop this kind of thing from happening. He's just telling people it's a really bad ****ing idea.

I cannot stand Jon Stewart anymore, but this guy isn't slamming one side only. He points out how bad both sides are and touches on issues main stream media would never talk about. It's a great show.

I think that if the city and the tax payer have to help pay for the stadium....that a percentage of the profits get put BACK into the city.

As an example, I believe Jackson County gets all of the parking $ from the Truman Sports Complex.

He's exactly right and his comments are exactly why the state of California has refused to build stadiums for billionaires. Some of the recent deals are crushing local municipalities and it's definitely welfare for billionaires, which is absolutely absurd.

Want a stadium in which the owner receives 100% of the concessions, parking, luxury box and ticket sales?

Build it yourself.

I was kind of hoping that he would tackle the fact that teams are playing their home games in other ****ing countries....but, meh, I think he did quite well.
I'll be honest, I didn't know it was this bad.

No, I believe this is wrong. Part of their lease agreement is that Jackson County is on the tab for keeping the parking lots maintained. The actual fees paid for parking goes in the revenue coffers of the Chiefs and the Royals. The tenant teams have sweet deals.
