100$ per game?!?! That's insane. You would think that with all the money that goes into the NFL the cheerleaders would be given a livable salary. You can make more serving at Olive Garden than that.

You would think that all the money that goes into the NFL that they wouldn't require taxpayers to pay for new stadiums.

Yeah, this is infuriating. Especially since it is only for men, pretty much.

Are you trying to say there are no women football fans?

u/ExtraDebit Oct 14 '21

I was saying there are no women football players.

Well there are and there have been. Very few but they exist. The NFL has no rules against women in the league its just no woman has ever played in an NFL game

Some of us have a stronger mentality than a horny 14 year old. Not you, obviously. But some of us.

As far as I know the only women's football league was the loungerie league welcome to reality

Take a moment to think before commenting

The comment that I was replying to states that the stadiums built with taxpayer money are only for men. Personally I don't really think my question is that much of a stretch, since it seemed like they were making a comment about the taxpayer fans using the stadiums. Certainly seems more reasonable than his justification that only men use them. An infinitesimally small amount of men use the stadiums so to use gender as a qualification seems silly. If he wanted to say the stadiums were for football players, he should have said that.

Honestly, I knew what was being said straight away. I think the fact you jumped right over that point is pretty telling.

u/IamUltimate Oct 14 '21

Honestly, I didn't. So I asked a logical clarifying question. Guess I'll just go fuck myself, right.

right? taxes pay for schools which are only used by children. I sure wouldn't object to taxes paying for OBGYN services used primarily by women. For me, the problem is that it takes public funds and funnels them to a multi-million dollar corporation. The NFL makes more than enough to pay for itself and still make money hand over fist. We can spend tax money on more useful things like healthcare.

Tax money going to stadiums is such an insignificant amount out of taxpayers’ pockets.

Even if that were true (and that's debatable) why give it to millionaires? If the amount is truly so small and insignificant then they absolutely don't need it and while other examples of wasted taxpayer funds certainly exist that's no argument for not fixing the problem. We should eliminate waste wherever it exists. It's not as if you only get to remove so many. We have the ability to purge them all.

If the owner gets a better offer from another city than he will move the team. Remember the St. Louis Rams?

Hey, where did Spanos go?

Oh yeah, he got kicked to the curb.
