This is in response to Larry Walsh’s guest opinion (“L.A. deserves a viable stadium plan,” March 17).
We may need new stadiums, but let the owners of the teams that wish to play in them, and make money from them, build them. We the taxpayers do not need to put our money out so that a small group of team owners can make many millions of dollars and pay millions of dollars in salaries, while we invest in their teams and regain nothing. According to the press, no new stadium is making money with the way their lease is structured.
I have to pay for my buildings necessary for me to do business so should the team owners. There is no difference we are both out to make money. If a team owner realizes this, like the Los Angeles Dodgers, they will build their own stadium, not rely on the taxpayer to do so.
