According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Los Angeles Rams have reached a $790 million settlement with the city of St. Louis, St. Louis County, and the Regional Convention and Sports Complex Authority, ending the lawsuit that was spurred by the Rams' decision to leave St. Louis and relocate to Los Angeles.

That is massive money. I wonder what the settlement winners will do with the cash if that whole amount is ever paid out.

I think the way these things work is that the private for-profit business gets the taxpayers to build them a stadium so they can make more profits. I would guess that they will use the settlement money to pay the private businesses for money that they lost by moving and leaving the taxpayers high and dry to still pay for a stadium that has no team to play in it. Isn't that they way free market welfare works? Just speculating here.

NFL is not about fans or cities. Just cash. And burning out the bodies and wasting away the mids of men. This is fun for sick people.

Massive money but what was the true loss to the taxpayers? We all know the money won't go back to them.

Cities get literally fleeced by the NFL. They should build their own damn stadiums but that will never happen. Local government officials are more than happy to bankroll the teams with millions of taxpayer dollars for stadium improvements while infrastructure and important social programs remain unfunded. Football teams are like toy soldiers for City Mayors. They sits in their skyboxes and vicariously compare their dicks to other city mayors. That's what it's really all about.

I love to watch football, but I just don't think people who don't even watch it I should be forced to pay for it. Football is not a public service, it is a form of entertainment.

I don't think much of Colin Kapernick, but his remarks and some of the memes equating the NFL draft and combines to slave auctions is pretty spot on. Of course the players choose it and are payed well but the dehumanizing aspect of it is still very real.
