Crosby Can Thank The Taxpayers

from a Pittsburgh Tribune-Review editorial,

As money is fungible, it is no stretch to say Mr. Crosby’s financial fortune is partly guaranteed by taxpayers. They’ll receive less property-tax “relief” so the teenage hockey phenom can be magnificently paid….
So, sure, we’ll join the chorus and praise the young star for being a team player. He appears to be mature beyond his years for taking less money now in hopes of keeping the nucleus of a hot team together and on the road to another Stanley Cup.
But none of this would be possible without taxpayers. And that remains a sad commentary considering Greater Pittsburgh’s far more pressing needs.
