More significant upgrades are still on the table, however, as the Bucs and Tampa Sports Authority (TSA) are also dangling the "Super Bowl" carrot over taxpayers, since you know, you can't get those big community "benefits" without paying the NFL's
But don't worry, taxpayers will totally benefit from RayJay's new scoreboards and flat screens and seat cushions since you know, otherwise, Raymond James Stadium wouldn't be able to attract top-notch events to Tampa.
Oh wait, what's that you say? Taylor Swift tickets are selling like hotcakes for the October RayJay show? Even without those upgrades?
Maybe Hillsborough County could get great economic returns from an unrenovated Raymond James Stadium after all!
Oh wait, what's that you say? The first $2 million of profit from the Swift concert - and 50% of everything after that - goes to the Glazers even though a concert has nothing to do with football?
That is one helluva sweetheart deal.
But don't worry, elected leaders swear it'll never happen again...
