A Miami Dolphins fan, not a players fan.
Theres nothing wrong with JRS. Its made out of cement/concrete. The stadium and others built like it will be for centuries to come. Its not complicated to make JRS state of the art. Gut it, and run new guts in it. Its bones are as good or better than any NFL stadium out there. 400 million for a state of the art stadium in 2013 is a freaking bargain.

The only thing that putting things off for later gets you is a MUCH larger bill in the future.
What cracks me up is we have a GREAT owner who is willing to spend his hard earned wealth to help a city to retain the franchise he and the people love. But because of an idiot baseball owner he and his NFL franchise are going to have to suffer the consequences. Never mind he's paying more than half of the bill. That's a far better deal than most cities ever get.
