Fool me once…shame on you.
Fool me twice…shame on me.
Fool me three times…someone needs to be Baker Acted.
That thought occurred to me as I read Dolphin owner Steve Ross was going to the Dade County “well” to once again ask them to chip in a couple of hundred million to gussie up Joe Robbie Stadium.
Billionaire Steve Ross prepares to throw the ball to taxpayers again!
First it was the Heat and the Arena. Next it was the Marlin Stadium ripoff. That led to overwhelming votes to recall the Mayor and a County Commissioner and the current Securities Exchange Commission investigation.
Now billionaire Ross–who must be suffering from Alzheimer’s or is hoping everyone else is– wants Dade to bend over and spread ‘em for the third time.
[An early and wise vote of the Broward County Commission made it clear that he’s getting’ zipski from us. He's asking for money from the state, so who knows what our esteemed legislators will do?]
But with those idiots down in Dade hope springs eternal.
His carrot is that this will get us the 2016 Super Bowl. His stick is that he might just move the team.
For the price of a ticket we can all watch the game at home on a new 60” TV.
As for moving the team. No problem. I’ll even loan him my SunPass.
