Stephen Ross has $4mil invested in Parcells (well $8mil if you count this year as well). He was willing to throw in the neighborhood of $8mil next year to Harbaugh, and eat the $2mil that Sparano is owed if he released him.
And yet he's asking taxpayers to cover his proposed stadium improvements because he doesn't get direct benefit from it - the community does.
How laughable is that? He thinks nothing of spending essentially $18mil on coaches/executives but won't foot the bill on stadium improvements that will ALWAYS directly benefit him.
That irks me. And while its "bed tax dollars" it nevertheless is money that could be spent of much better things - schools, infrastructure, to name two - rather than a handout to a billionaire.
