Here Mr. Bajillionaire Owner. Here’s another $20,000,000, just because.
In order to get the prospective team’s owners to agree to a less-than-ideal location—the fairgrounds are well outside of Nashville’s densely packed downtown—city officials agreed to gift an additional 10 acres of land adjacent to the 10 acres that will be used for the stadium. There the team’s owners plan to build apartments, office buildings, a 200-room hotel, and plenty of bars and restaurants.
So nice of the city government to do this.
This sort of thing is just one of the reasons we’ve soured on pro sports over the years. Why not go out and DO something instead of watching others do something?
