I wish more states and cities would do that.

Professional sports would be better off if more teams were publicly owned, like Green Bay, so asshole owners could no longer play the "build me a huge new stadium with tax dollars, or I'm moving the team to someplace that will."

A sports franchise is not comparable to a donut shop or a dry cleaners. It may be a private business, but it is also a public trust, and often embodies the heart and soul of a community. Take away that heart, and the city is never the same.

Brooklyn, of course, is the classic example. That's why we turned Walter O'Malley into a pile of sludge in WILD CARDS, and kept the Dodgers at Ebbets Field, where they belonged.
