As David Beckham seeks a site for his MLS franchise, those who voice opposition ask how can he make such an investment of private money — upwards of $250 million — play 25 home games and make money? How he makes money is not a valid question unless you also ask it of Steve Ross, who has invested nearly $1 billion in the Dolphins, who play only eight home games.
In addition, will any future sports franchise be attacked as “another Marlins deal?” Rather than being so critical and painting Beckham with a broad brush, why don’t those who support these negative attacks offer to help him in his goal? What a novel concept for our community.
