The attitude probably would have been different some years ago about public financing of stadiums for professional sports, mainly football. Time has a way of changing attitudes. What has been brewing in the St. Louis area, and in other places, has not been a better Budweiser but resentment against wealthy owners wanting too much from the taxpayers to finance new or expanded glossy stadiums.

Remember the joy and pride when St. Louis obtained the Rams? Remember the adulation when the Rams brought home a Super Bowl trophy? After years of mediocre and underachieving performances, the luster and appeal have waned even though hopes spring eternal by diehard fans that better days are ahead. They don’t want the team to move because the Edward Jones Dome doesn’t meet today’s high standards and upgrades are being mandated or the team may head west.
