The best part of the entire open letter "The majority of public funding came from hotel taxes, the burden of which is incurred by tourists who are visiting our city, NOT the resident taxpayers." This is an actual argument that Loria has attempted to use in defense of the stadium!! First off, a tax is a tax. Just because the people of Miami are not paying it, does not make it any less of a tax. Every dollar that visitors are taxed in support of building your stadium is a dollar that is not going to another business. So basically we are financing a 2.5 billion dollar stadium for a man that is a billionaire himself! Not to mention this will have an affect on the amount of tourists that actually visit. You can only tax people for so many things before those people just stop coming. I will not support the Marlins in any way. I will not go to or view a single game that they are involved in. Selig and the rest of baseball's owners need to rid themselves of Loria before I even consider giving them another chance.
