    This is the message I got on Facebook- just passing it own

    Dear Stadium Supporter,

    Tomorrow, the San Diego City Council will vote on a critical matter which will determine the future of the Chargers’ Downtown Stadium effort.

    Please review the list of City Council Districts below. If you live in any of these areas, please call your City Couincilmember TODAY and urge them to vote to approve the study to raise the CCDC spending Cap.

    At this point, all we are asking for is for this study to be done which will determine if there is blight in this area of East Village and if the study concludes that this is the case, a recommendation will be made to raise the spending cap. This will allow the Chargers to put the option of using CCDC money on a new stadium before the Citizens of San Diego via public vote. If this study is not approved, the Downtown stadium option is all but dead.

    I'd also encourage you to attend the City Council meeting tomorrow if you can and express your views.

    Thanks,

    Jason

    Study finds Super Bowl contributed $333 million to South Florida

    Posted by Michael David Smith on June 21, 2010 8:33 PM ET

    A study released today reported that the Super Bowl's economic impact to South Florida was $333 million. That's the good news.

    The bad news is that $333 million is a significant drop from the $463 million the 2007 Super Bowl brought to South Florida's economy. Despite the drop, however, the study is being used as evidence that public money should be used to renovate Sun Life Stadium and make it an attractive venue for future Super Bowls.

    "Every major city in America wishes they had a Pro Bowl and Super Bowl on their books for February 2010. We were fortunate to have that kind of business," host committee chairman Rodney Barreto said, per the Sun Sentinel. "It was business that was needed. . . . Hey, it's better than zero."

    Yes, it's "better than zero." But "better than zero" probably isn't going to be enough to convince taxpayers to spend millions of dollars to renovate the stadium.

    Dolphins CEO Mike Dee says the team will need to convince the taxpayers to pitch in, because the team can't do it alone.

    "There has to be a public-private component to this," Dee said. "There has to be some participation if we're going to finish the job."
