    Got this quote from the Sun-Sentinel. I would not be too worried about this, it will get consdidered.

    And to those that think it does not matter.....Well IMO it does. Maybe not for you, but to a whole lot of other people. Restaurant and bar owners and their employees see more business, hotels and their employees, and so on and so on. Then those people have more money to spend and the state and city and the county collected more in taxes to spend on other things. I just get so sick of people calling this corporate welfare. There is a cost-benefit relief that the governments will see, (increased hotel taxes) this is an investment. More business=more taxes.

    "At a meeting last week, House Speaker Will Weatherford, with Senate President Don Gaetz in agreement, said that he would like all proposals to assist sports teams be considered at one time. Among the other bills being considered by the Legislature is one that would make a proposed Orlando soccer stadium eligible for state money."

    Seeing as how NONE of the taxes proposed would come from any of us living in Florida, your comment is a bit ignorant. Like a lot of our leaders these days, never let the facts get in your way!

    Then you would want them to get the renovations. It would bring in more tax dollars to spend on highway projects. The proposed taxes are taxes that would come from tourist staying in hotels, it's called a bed tax. It would push it to 7%. States like NY have their bed taxes at or near 17%.

    Do your research, the Super Bowl has barely made any economic impact the last several times they hosted here compared to years that Miami didn't have a Super Bowl. The ones who benefits are the corporate people of Holiday Inn's, Marriott's, and other hotels and restaurant owners. Employee checks of servers/bellboys also benefits. What exactly does that do for Miami? Nothing.

    Honestly, there are so many issues with budgets both at the state level and city level, this money is better off spent on things more important than sports.

    There are as many or more that say the opposite. To me it's common sense. If more ppl are going to arrive at destination for an event, that would in turn bring in more money to that area if that event was not there.

    The money can not be used for anything but sports franchises expanding their facilities. Dee made that very very very very very clear in their PC concerning this.

    There is so much misinformation with this subject it's scary. I have no doubt it will not happen, and we will in turn get less Super Bowls and in time we will lose the Dolphins to another city. Some ppl never let the facts get in the way of their agenda.

    And wtf man, you don't even live in Florida let alone Miami.

    Interesting because if the location on your avatar is correct you live in Palm Beach county so if there was a tax hike (which my understanding is the only taxes that go up would only effect tourists) it wouldn't effect you anyway.

    Exactly, tourists are the ones who will be paying for the renovations. I am not a local so I am considered a tourist when I come down for Dolphins games. I am perfectly fine with them taxing me to upgrade the stadium.
