The big scam came with the advent of Marlins Park. The team is worse than ever, the stadium sits empty and Miami-Dade County is in debt to the tune of $650 million, really $2.5 billion by the time it’s paid off.
Now another billionaire decides he needs to renovate Sun Life Stadium.
So he goes to the same suckers in Miami-Dade County for $200 million.
When John Henry tried to extort money to renovate the stadium he was turned down. He then sold the team and bought the Boston Red Sox.
Stephen Ross is now crying to Miami-Dade and even to Tallahassee.
If it weren’t for the Heat, Miami could brag about having the worst professional teams with the highest cost. Did our elected officials fail economics or ethics? The real renovation is needed at the commission level.
