From the supplier: A conflict continues to emerge between political leaders and sports team owners over the issue on franchise team retention and stadium construction. Team owners claim that a major league team offers psychological and economic benefits to the host state. However, governors and mayors balk at the idea of providing them with expensive stadiums and benefits. As teams leave or threaten to leave, charges and countercharges are filed.
