6. A historical practice? Renovate facilities, i.e., "renovate Wrigley Field"

I think the basic scam is to play on a "city's" prestige as perceived by city leaders. The threat has often been: build us a new stadium, with better facilities, or we'll move to "that other city". Just imagine what a "loss" losing the team would be.

I'm guessing local sports fans would probably rally to the cause, dreading the need to travel to see their favorite team.
