        That was of the multipurpose era from the 60s to 00s when parks were built to accommodate football and baseball but ended up doing a suboptimal job for one or both.

    I’ve traveled a lot around Europe and some in South America and American stadiums are 1000x better than the shitboxes they have overseas. They’re all old, musty and terrible to get in and out of

      It’s really not a fair comparison when most American stadiums are built with a lot of public money. Then again, they outdo the national stadiums of Europe anyway.

          In Atlanta the Falcons get 32% of the tax on every hotel stay for thirty years. Not just on game day or during football season, all year long. When you get your bill for a hotel in Atlanta, nearly a third of that tax goes to ~~*Arthur Blank*~~ for the stadium his football team plays in. It's estimated that the tax will bring in $1.2 billion over those thirty years. Many cities have similar schemes where much of the team's income comes through stadium deals that tax the public, including visitors, even if they never do anything involving the stadium.
          Additionally, lots of infrastructure near the stadium that caters mainly to the needs of the stadium come out of the city's budget separately. Pic related was mostly paid for with "renewal bonds" that were meant to pay for things like parks in poor neighborhoods. The city claims that since the stadium is near a poor neighborhood that poor residents benefit from the bridge so it is good that funds that could have been used for sidewalks and sewer system overhauls was used for a pedestrian bridge instead.

            LOL, look again. Only a small portion is "covered" and that cover is perforated. At best, it provide a bit of shade of panhandlers. Even if it wasn't perforated, the distance to use the crosswalk is about 1/10th that of the "uncovered" part of the bridge.

            Spoken like a true gibs jogger. Everything in life is great when you get to tax others for your desires. Also the stadium is only good for football. For concerts they completely fricked up the acoustic, which wasn't a problem in the previous stadium.

      Because Europeans are smart enough to force billionaire sports owners to finance their own stadia. In America we let the threat of relocation scare us into subsidizing billion-dollar companies with tax money when they want to build a new stadium.

          yeah well i was assuming soon the big spanish and italian teams will force the super league. Because the mid table EPL teams are surpassing the Serie A giants in terms of financial might. Barca is fricking bankrupt. To maintain their stature in the game the non-english teams need to force the super league sooner rather than later. The big money teams from the smaller leagues should be forcing it too. Celtic, rangers, Porto etc should be licking their chops that they could be in a super league competing with Real madrid. It could catapult them to international megamoney.

            Americans allow owners to use tax money to pay for stadiums, also NFL teams represent bigger and more populated areas than soccer teams. Arsenal only represents a part of London, not even Liverpool represents all of Liverpool either, they have smaller markets

            so with a $2bn stadium, 110 pc is paid for by tax revenue?

            >Arsenal only represents a part of London, not even Liverpool represents all of Liverpool either, they have smaller markets
            Liverpool is in Merseyside, a much bigger area than just Liverpool. And lots of people across London will support the big teams. London is a huge city also

        no one does this you either vote resoundingly yes to rob tourist to fund them and laid it or some state bureaucrat goes over your head and does it anyway. Everytime a direct vote on you getting taxed gets put to vote it's "frick off moron"

      The best stadium in the league is SoFi and its 100% privately made. If politicians were better negotiators for public good (they are obviously prostitutes who betray public good)the stadiums in America would still be good.
      The problem is cultural. I haven't been to Europe and I wouldn't recommend you ever visit America, but we love sports and spending money on them. We don't care about the price. It ridiculous, might even be a character flaw. Regardless, I see a lot of passion from flopkick fans, but I don't see the money per team. Sure, I bet there are a couple but its nothing compared to American sports addiction. Losing perpetual failure teams and artificial expansions make so much goddamn money here without even that much local passion its crazy. We just spend money man, the stadium is a result of this.

      • 4 weeks ago

        The reason SoFi was privately financed was because the NFL was favoring the Chargers and Raiders moving back to LA, leaving Kroenke in the cold back in St Louis

          I don't care why, that explanation means nothing to me because I don't know who the frick Kroke is.
          The point is Americans spend more money then Europoors, its why they are called that. It is not the taxes that build the stadiums, its the fans that fill them and buy 300 in merch 80 in beer and 50 in food.

            Euros spend so little money their governments have to tax the frick out of them to get to it(Americans primarily pay taxes in sales tax) and they have to lay down negative interest on bank accounts to force them too spend.

      The NFL is crafty. They'll do something like rolling the cost of a new bridge over the river into the same project as the stadium and claim the public is getting a great "two-for-one" deal, then add a toll whose revenue goes to the team.

      Will there be a new bogeyman city that the NFL will threaten to move whichever teams don't build new stadiums to like LA used to be?
