I seem to recall the likes of DiIanni extolling the contention that the purpose of the Red Hill Expressway was to open up "employment lands". Remember? It wasn't to increase the value of his speculating friends' land at public expense, it just looked that way. (check out who owned most of the land up there, you'll be amazed)

Unless you're a hot dog vendor or a ticket-taker and only need to work on game day, I'm not seeing a lot of real jobs or even "spinoffs" being generated by a stadium in a wheatfield. Put it downtown where there are hotels, restaurants and bars that we can walk to and save the taxpaying, job-producing land for real entrepreneurs from the private sector who want to spend their own money not taxpayers'.
