It's "For the Fans," Eh?

The Milwaukee Brewers now want the taxpayers to bend over, grab ankles, shut up, and enjoy it while contributing another $3.25 million toy for the Brewers' sandbox. The Brewers' mouthpiece:

Rick Schlesinger, a Brewers executive vice president, said the district and the team were obligated to maintain the stadium as a state-of-the-art facility. "The LED boards are a great fan enhancement, and frankly, based on our research, are fast becoming the standard for first-class facilities," Schlesinger said. "We think this is a legitimate and proper use of segregated reserve funds. We think the fans will find value from this expenditure."

That's cute, Rick.

But we'll play your game. If it's really "For the Fans," then you can have your videoboards--if and only if all the revenue from the boards goes to pay off the bonds.

THAT would be "fan support", Rick.
