Greedy sports-franchise owners put sports-stadium taxes on the ballot

In this election year, when sports fans are desperately seeking a distraction, any coupling of sports and politics will be met with the snarled refrain “stick to sports!”

The past couple of weeks served as a loud, wordy reminder of just how deeply certain fans want to stick their heads several feet into the sand and make it all go away. In that context, we’ll make the following deal with them: If leagues and team owners can keep their businesses off public ballots and out of the tax till, then we’ll keep politics out of our sports coverage.

Maybe next election cycle.
