national football league stadium strategy



a: National football league stadium strategy ~
b: A sliding tile puzzle

What: The NFL has been very successful over the past decade or so in convincing local government to pony up large amounts of local public money to pay for stadium in which they are often a major financial beneficiary. How is this done? Well, ask yourself, "Why doesn't Los Angeles have a football team?" Quite simply it is an empty space, The LA Coliseum, in a sliding tile puzzle game into which any local government can have their team slid into if they don't cooperate in building a new stadium. It's a simple yet effective tactic. They are playing cities against each other.
