The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports the mayor of Pittsburgh has a blunt message to the city’s NFL team owners: You’ve taken enough public money already.

“What we’ve said is there is enough revenue being generated on that piece of land through parking, through drinks, through food, through tickets, through hotels, through every different source, that we don’t have to go to the public to buy a new Jumbotron,” Peduto said. …

The SEA has invested $12 million in capital improvements at the stadium since it opened in 2001, according to Executive Director Mary Conturo’s office. Conturo said she knows of no major events that passed on Heinz Field because of inadequate facilities.

Good job, Mr. Mayor. Don’t give in!
