Government Spending on Pro Sports

Governments are forever spending public money to subsidise professional sports with stadiums, arenas, ballparks and hockey rinks. Unfair! People with no interest in sports, or with no money to buy tickets, are subsidising well off people who can afford tickets. Sports are a frill. Governments have no business spending on them when there are so many more pressing needs. Further, professional sports are rolling in money. They do not need subsidies.
