After all, almost every team (with its stadium) is a grotesque example of government outside its proper limits.
Huge team losses are the only reason many people will ever do the right thing and separate government from sports.
Privatization of a local stadium will only occur if the team performs so badly that fans forsake the games.
In other words, many fans will only do the right thing for the wrong reasons.
Many fans will never do the right thing for the right reasons - to preserve
limited government, free market economics and individual liberty.
Instead, they will only do so if their team fails to perform.
So as long as the team performs well (or even mediocre), many fans will brainlessly embrace socialism, taxation and any other affront to fundamental principles and liberty.
It is important for hometown teams to suffer huge losses for Stadiums to be sold.
A Government-owned stadium is a visible, emotional and, for many, a
subliminal symbol of taxation and socialism. The separation of sport and
state is as important as the separation of church and state.

JOE REDNER HAS LITIGATED FOR THOSE FREEDOMS
At many college campuses (including the University of Florida UF) before many football games, trucks travel around campus to pick-up all trash cans and benches to prevent them from being thrown and used for vandalism after the game. News outlets do their usual lobotomy reportage on the weapon round-up as if it is amusing. Violent activity that exists on taxation/theft is funny to graduates of government schools. The same news outlets dutifully regurgitate claptrap from criminal politicians whenever they want to ban or restrict nude dancing, prostitution or any non-violent activity that does not rely on taxation/theft. Non-violent activity that does not take taxation/theft is bad to graduates of government schools.
Thus government will use taxation/theft and violence to persecute non-violent activity that does not use taxation/theft. The government has wasted a lot of time doing that to Joe Redner, owner of the famous Mons Venus. Redner has successfully litigated against government for decades. The government has paid him a lot of money for its losses.
I suspect that Winston Churchill would have enjoyed this (though I extend my apologies just in case).
A wealthy investor appears before the local governing body and says “If I promised to operate a sports team locally, would you be good socialists and build me a socialized stadium?” All of the elected officials nod gleefully and say “Yes, Sir!”
Then the wealthy investor says “Well, would you be good socialists and build me a socialized facility if I promised to operate a nude dance establishment?” A look of shock comes over all of the elected officials, and they scream “What do you think we are?!?!”
The wealthy investor says “Well, we’ve established that you are socialistic prostitutes. Now we’re just haggling over the details.”
|The Buccaneers logo, the
"skull & sword," is another example of modern symbolism combined with
modern socialism (sports spectacles in socialized stadiums) similar to
historic behavior under the National Socialist German Workers Party. http://rexcurry.net/book1a1contents-swastika.html

Gasparilla and pirate symbolism resembles Nazi symbolism. Tattoos (temporary
or permanent) are common at festivals and parties. Wal-mart withdrew from
sale a T-shirt with such symbolism due to its Nazi associations.
From Creative Loafing Newspaper Re: "Tom's "Morning After'" by John F. Sugg (Feb. 15-21) published 3-29-2001
I just finished reading the article you did about the corrupt ways of blowhard Tom McEwen. Fascinating stuff, but hardly surpassing. In the few times I actually wrote to his weekly "Hey Tom" column, he refused to print my letters. I suspected a huge ego at the time and I was young. Now I am grown and completely understand the man had more power than most knew. He couldn't have gotten away with his slanted views if he didn't. Now I know why. Thanks for making it all clear and a special thank you for finally playing a part in taking that man out of my life for good. He was a complete waste of space and time.
Does Fandom Breed Establishment Loyalists?
I love sports. So Michael writes to me and rants about the ridiculously fanatical fan fever for sports teams and how that annoys him. He believes sports fervor is a form of nationalism that breeds loyalty to the establishment. I can certainly sympathize with his point.
But I've always thought that the bizarre notion of American school spirit is a form of quasi-nationalism, if you will. It seems to breed similar loyalty on a larger scale as these types typically come to worship the state as much as their alma mater. Going to a small, private college, I've always disliked the extremist college fervor from alumni that has them worshipping everything about their former place of "learning." At 50 years old, college is still the one thing they want to talk about all the time. I used to be forced to go out to lunch with my audit team when I was working in public accounting and working out of the office on client audits. (Team-building, don't you know.) There were two main topics of conversation that sprang forth from these otherwise intelligent, educated people: TV shows and college (alma mater) worship. It drove me nuts. Nowadays, if people do that in my company, I just start surfing the web on my Palm Smartphone.Talking about the good old days at college as if they were the only days. Seems a bit bizarre to me.

9-11-08 Said Luke O'Neil at WeeklyDig.com: "It could have been worse. I could have ended up like Bradford Campeau-Laurion, the 29-year-old Queens resident forcibly ejected from Yankee Stadium last week [9-9-08] for committing the grave sin of walking to the bathroom while "God Bless America" played during the seventh-inning stretch. Post-9.11, the stadium created a rule restricting fans' movement during the song. Really. A true patriot, you see, knows his place. He understands that any American who "loves freedom" must sing and salute when commanded to do so.
Shocking, right? While it's a practice glaringly antithetical to the freedoms we hold so dear, it seems incidents like this become increasingly common every day. It's hard to remember that freedom business we were all so proud of in the first place.
If being a sports fan means chronically renewing a loyalty oath, I'll pass."
