Sports not only builds strong bones and teamwork. Sports teams build community. We root for our home teams, whether they be high school or college or professional. But sports has become big business and increasingly our home teams have become absentee owned. And the absentee owners in all leagues threaten to pick up and go to another community if they are not given huge subsidies, usually in the form of a new stadium or ballpark.
What policies can we adopt that allow us that the home team will stay at home and remain a way for all ages and races and genders to bond as fans?
