JOIN THE FIGHT!

UNITE with your brothers and sisters to spread the word :

SPORTS SUCK!


Nothing will ever change if we don't unite to support our cause! The first step in the battle against sports is publicly acknowledging your indifference to the big game.  We know it's hard to stand up to what appears to be a majority but if you can muster the courage, more often than not, you'll find that other people agree with you. You'll find that most people aren't really into the big game --they were just afraid to admit it.   They were just waiting for a leader to show them the way and that leader is you!   Lead them away from mediocrity!   The next time you're approached to participate in the office football pool, just say NO! The next time some dullard approaches you and says, "how 'bout them dawgs?", just look them straight in the eye and say, "I don't know what the heck you're talking about! I don't watch sports!" Just say NO!

Field of Schemes is a play-by-play account of how the drive for new sports stadiums drains $2 billion a year from public treasuries for the sake of private profit. While the millionaires who own sports franchises have seen the value of their assets soar under this scheme, taxpayers, urban residents, and sports fans have all come out losers, forced to pay both higher taxes and higher ticket prices.

The stories in Field of Schemes, from Baltimore to Cleveland and Minneapolis to Seattle and dozens of places in between, tell of the team owners who use their money and their political muscle to get their way.

This revised and expanded edition features the first comprehensive reporting on the recent stadium battles in Washington DC, New York City, and Boston as well as updates on how cities have fared with the first wave of new stadiums built in recent years.
