Your the one that has hung onto a single example for all dear life, so(despite pointing out many other uses for tax payer money) ive obliged with your obsession. Your trying to dismiss the point by saying "lulz construction lulz". Are you under the assumption that the +$200 million brought in from bed taxes would just sit there not being used? That the city of Miami couldnt use it for other endeavors? Your wrong. As i bluntly stated before, you need only to change the legislation to give that money new use. Every penny that goes towards Ross goes away from someone else.
And oh yeah, people were absolutely deceived, i suppose its embarassing for this individual to be caught on camera. His face must be red after be lied to:

We need those things. We value school teachers, firefighters, people who build roads. You really couldnít have a business if you didnít have those things."

Now there will be a county referendum on the public funding. The Dolphins reversed course and agreed to that today. Looks like they were backed into a corner, sensing it otherwise wasn't going to happen in Tallahassee, given the makeup of the legislature. Dade County typically gets the shaft, let's put it that way.
I'm surprised there isn't a separate thread. I heard about this a couple of hours ago, on the way home from the golf course. I suspect the news posters believe this is bad news, so they are content to ignore it. But I'm not sure it is bad news, for the ones supporting the plan. The Dolphins could never prevail in a high participation general election atmosphere, but a specialized referendum is an entirely different matter, like a primary. The most energized voters dictate the outcome. No doubt the Dolphins will spend tons of money trying to influence who shows up and what they are thinking. Lots of major upsets in primaries.
I hope it fails miserably.
Regardless, referendums are not cheap. I hope they wait for a situation with other items on the ballot. If it's a solo job, rushed into March or April, the Dolphins should have to foot the bill.
