The FIVE teams hit WORST by crony capitalism in the NFL

Can you guess which NFL teams have been hit worst by crony capitalism in subsidies from their local governments? Well, the libertarian pot-smokers at REASON.com compiled the worst offenders to annoy your Superbowl festivities in this short video:

And for those of you who are too busy working to earn those subsidies to watch a minute long video, here are the teams with the worst cases of crony capitalism paying for their stadiums:

5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers: $194 million, 100% funded by the public.

4) Cleveland Browns: $271 million, 74% funded by the public.

3) Baltimore Ravens: $226 million, 90% funded by the public.

2) Indianapolis Colts: $719.6 million, 86% funded by the public.

1) Cincinnati Bengals: $449.8 million, 94% funded by the public.

Wow that’s a lot of moolah for some pretty crappy cities that probably can’t afford it. Now I love NFL football, but the way in which the multi-billion dollar industry makes a profit by screwing over stupid city officials in their deals for funding stadiums does irk me as a conservative. But then again, you get the politicians you vote for, right?
