Haven't listened to it yet, but no surprise. This Norman Braman guy has been against the whole thing from the very beginning. Even though it is one of the better proposals you will find from a sports team, this guy will continue to be negative against it. Too late to back down now.
Who the hell is Norman Braman? And why do we give two fluffs about his opinion?
A wise man once told me: "Sometimes when you close your eyes, you can't see."
saying this deal is as bad as the marlins deal is just wrong. Miami didnt lie to get the cash and are paying a lot back, it will also benefit the city long term with super bowls etc.
Be against the deal, thats fine. but dont talk crap to advance your agenda.
Norman Braman is a NIMBY hypocrite, taking plenty of money from the city of Philly to build the stadium when he owned the Eagles and as a prominent auto dealer in Miami, gladly accepting all sorts of tax cuts and incentives to stimulate jobs, which if gathered together, would result in total in a miniscule fraction of the jobs generated by the stadium construction. He's just a whore who's using the platform to promote his dealerships and curry favor especially amongst those potential customers who happen to agree with him. Huck fim and the disingenuous self-serving horse he rode in on.

(fine for RT17 but not when it comes to someone's HC and beloved QB)
Education in South Florida ****ing SUCKS.
He matters bc he is willing to pour money into the opposition of the stadium renovation agenda. Him and Billy Corben matter bc they have power and can get people to polls. Hopefully South Florida isn't stupid enough to listen to them
