Re the March 15 article Local organizers say no to NFL hotel-tax exemption: It’s laughable that the members of the National Football League think that they should be exempt from paying local hotel taxes on the rooms they will be using during the Super Bowl. Isn’t it bad enough that they travel with myriad employees that will displace local workers from plying their specific skills?
They say that this is part of the process for generating economic impact and exposure. But where is the economic impact on all those displaced Florida workers?
