Throw in the convention center into.the discussion? Pittsburgh is such a go-to destination for conventions? Sheesh.
The parking lots, bars, resturants, hotels, and everything else see the Steelers as a cash cow. Which the NFL is. And the Penguins have how many consecutive sellouts?
Don't be fooled by some academic "expert" who has their own agenda on Pennlive. A PhD runs the WHO. You trust them?
Ask any business owner in the city what home games mean in terms of $$$.
People want entertainment. Goes back to gladiators in the Roman coliseium. Pro sports are the upper echelon of that.
Everyone benefits, and lots of people make a living off of it. If the Steelers wanted to move, how many cities would line up.to build them a palace?
It isnt for ego, you land that team, you get rich.
A closed mind keeps the truth out
