Foolish to spurn Dolphins’ proposal

 

So we have an NFL owner who is willing to dig into his own pocket and pony up $400 million, yet Miami-Dade Commission Chair Rebeca Sosa says if the Dolphins don’t pay taxes, they won’t get her support. Stephen Ross is willing to put 100 years’ worth of annual taxes into a facility that will benefit thousands of people, not to mention the chance to improve the image of Miami-Dade. Figure out how to make this work or risk this franchise kissing Miami-Dade goodbye. Talk about penny wise and pound foolish.
