Only a handful of NFL and other major league teams use privately-financed venues to host their games. Many of them instead rely on taxpayer dollars.  The source article by the Daily Signal explains how these major sports team’s get financing for their half billion dollar complexes and who foots the bill.   Most people would be shocked to find out but do they really care?

Sacramento California’s Golden One Center Cost more than a half of a billion dollars to build for the Sacramento Kings, over 230 million came from the City of Sacramento and the Kings are paying the rest.  Where do those that live in Sacramento think that money is coming from?   It does not grow on trees!
