Uh, what?!

Season ticket holders screwed? Can you explain how. They been treated quite nicely and in some cases had their costs decreased.

I'm not one to defend large corporations, but you're making a lot of assumptions and presenting them as facts.

Tax cut? Are they getting one or did they just request one? I honestly haven't heard more than the request. Regardless, this is the same family that literally donated (I believe it was 13 million) to keep the Bee's here. The original agreement with Corridini was that Larry would loan the city 1/2 the money and go into silent partnership by paying the other 1/2. After a year the city came with their tail between their legs and could pay up. LHM was also throwing in all ground and facility care for free. At that point LHM bought the city out of their portion and have successfully ran the program since. Tack on the fact that the LHM literally employs thousands of employees across the state (financial center, VMHA, Theatres, car dealerships, etc..) which provide the state with a large amount of income from taxes. I realize LHM is also making a lot of money, but they wouldn't be had they not invested a lot into this state when no one else was willing. Where was your competition then?

Again, there are a lot of corporations you could go after out there. You could even go after Gail or some of Larry's decisions. But to go after them wanting to improve a 20+ year old 'entertainment' building and asking for the citystate to cut them some slack in the process, is more than their right and something they've earned to do IMHO.
