Bud Adams, owner of the Oilers, was demanding a new stadium. He wanted one 
bigger and better, one that would attract a super bowl bid. He couldn't fill 
the Astrodome because his team was so dysfunctional. The fans didn't like him 
personally. he too his ball and moved. Bob McNair financed a new team, the city 
authorized a bigger and better stadium that hosted the super Bowl in 2004 and 
will host next years. The hotel and car rental taxes pretty much pay for the 
stadium which is packed every game. At least the Texans are going to the Super 
Bowl this year, albeit via Denver and their coaching staff and a bunch of 
former Texan players.

    MD,
If the team is making money, they'll stay there.  If not, they'll move out just 
like the old Oilers.  If the hotels and car rental companies are not making 
money, they wouldn't stay there either.  So, apparently, everyone is making 
money and is happy for the time being.  If the team keeps winning, then the 
fans will be happy too.

What the city of Houston did was tax hotels and car rentals and use that for 
building stadiums. The fans got their stadium  which attracted or kept 
professional teams here and basically had  tourists pay for it.

 Dawn,
You're making good points. But the other side of the coin is that the city of 
Santa Clara got the 49ers to move down there.  If the city planners are right, 
the team and the stadium should be bringing in a lot of business and money to 
the city itself.  The local businesses, especially those near the stadium, 
should have a significant increase in their income.  From what I understand,  
Joe Montana, the former 49er QB, should be making a lot of money from his 
investment in building a hotel near the stadium.
Also, the current mayor of Oakland is a very efficient manager, who is much 
better than the last one.  If she can attract private investors to build a 
stadium for the Raiders without city funds, that would be an admirable and  
Amazonian feat.  If she can do it, she might rise in the California political 
circles.  If she's a Democrat, she could potentially replace any of the state 
senators, or even Dianne Feinstein or Barbara Boxer for federal senator.  
However, she would have stiff competition from Kamala Harris, the person whom 
the Democratic inner circle is grooming to replace Feinstein, IMO.

I don't have a problem with billionaires owning football teams.  I don't like 
it when medium sized cities like Santa Clara spend millions of dollars toward 
building stadiums that the football owners (and private investors) should be 
paying for.    I think that the owners of the 49ers (and private investors) 
should have paid for all of Levi Stadium, not part of it, leaving the 
unfortunate taxpayers Santa Clara to pay for a good portion of it.
I heard on the radio that the Mayor of Oakland would like a new stadium for the 
Oakland Raiders; however, she doesn't want any city funds to go toward it.  She 
is a smart woman!

 Dawn,
There are many incentives for billionaires to buy football teams.  They make 
more by doing so,  which thus reinforces their egos and image of success.  But, 
in practical terms, football teams are expensive and are good reasons for 
billionaires to get tax deductions for their other sources of income.
Specifically, football players can be amortized like cars as they age and 
become injured.  The amortization costs could significantly reduce the gross 
earnings.  Thus, the owners don't have to pay much taxes for the earnings they 
take in.  But these are all legal in the eyes of the IRS.

Unfortunately, taxpayers are left with the bitter taste of defeat when taxpayer

 That should get you on their watchlist. :-D 

Here, I thought violence was the nature of football.

Actually law enforcement will probably be more worried aboutprotests over 
having the Super Bowl here.  The Bay Area is asports nuts community.  Sports 
stuff involving local teams can topthe local news stories which is ridiculous.  
However local fanstend to be less interested in the Super Bowl (other than an 
excuseto drink lots of beer and eat fattening foods) if none of thelocal teams, 
especially the 49'ers, aren't playing. They alsodon't like the idea of their 
tax dollars going to fund stadiumsthat will help make rich people even richer.

  Ann,
I tried sending an email to the department last night. But their website stated 
to refer to the local city policedepartment to report any unusual activities.  
I might justdo that.  But they probably would need more details.
