Pro sports teams with billionaire owners asking for public assistance with items such as escalators and TV monitors — and threatening to skip town if the ransom isn’t paid.

Staff Pick

Greedy and needy, our pro sports teams won’t stop asking taxpayers for handouts. Some of the richest guys in town won’t cough up their own money for the new toys (escalators, TVs) they want. They come, palms outstretched, to the citizens. What’s worse, they don’t even ask nicely for $75 million. They demand it and threaten to leave if they don’t get their way.
