Rush had a good point about the NFL’s plummeting popularity. Aside from their public relations fiasco with Ray Rice, he pointed out that while the NFL itself is tax-exempt, they extort new stadiums from the taxpayers. And, as he notes, you have a bunch of working class people footing the bill, while the profits of the NFL go to the super rich. I’ve read study after study that says having a professional sports team in your city is a wash. It’s not really an economic boost after all the costs they extort from the host city. It’s rare Rush sees the working class side of anything. As long as Congress gets it’s cut from the football lobbyists, nothing will change.
