Default Re: Could the Pacers eventually leave Indiana?

I'm not afraid that the Pacers are leaving. There could be a long argument on who's going to take them in this economy, but to me it seems it would be too much of a gamble and a slap in the face to taxpayers of any state to spend that kind of money anytime in the near future. I know, ideally, bringing in a Pro sports team would boost the economy of a city without one, but in these times it seems too much of a risk. I think all of this is just getting Indy ready for another restaraunt tax increase, TPTB (in alot of areas) don't want to pass up on a chance of getting some of those superbowl dollars that'll be coming to town. The taxpayers will take care of this one.
