It’s really strange noticing Oliver’s little Americanisms. In the UK we usually say “sport” as plural as well. I understand that he’s speaking to a mainly American audience, it just sounds strange somehow.

Honestly I would love John to star as the couch in a sports movie where he’s never been a couch before and acts awkward but in the end makes a rallying speech that brings everyone together ;-;

At least the players of the teams do shit for the community, meanwhile the owners and execs drive the city into debt. Ironically this bullshit from the owners causes the players to do more community service because more kids are gonna need to learn how to read from illiterate players because their schools are underfunded.

These stadiums are part of the distractions for the US population. Just like the roman empire had the coliseum. "Bread and circuses...."

Funny to hear John Oliver changing his accent to be more friendly for americans, making it more English sounding but also pronouncing words like Americans do rather than English

John Oliver, I love you man, and my mom may have a weird crush on you, but I will not forgive you for slandering Tom Holland like that. How dare you. He is more Spider-Man than Andrew Garfield could ever wish to be.

I'm honest guys, as a European I don't get this. If a football team here in Europe would threaten the CITY to leave it's hometown when they don't get expensive shit, we would kick that team's ass out of town immediately. It's the biggest disgrace of all leaving the place you repesent. None of these teams have a bond to the city. Try this in Dortmund and you'll see what happens.
MARKOUT TV (15 дней назад)
I agree. Stadiums are costly and disruptive. But for real though NYCFC needs a new stadium.

funny thing in my town they are trying to put in a 30k person stadium when we cant even get 10k to show up for the old stadium. and when it came time to vote the polls were down for most of the day. funny how that work no one really wants the stadium but when it comes time for the people to vote on it you can't vote because of this new fangled technology that is supposed to make things better but then you see the vote leaning towards no and only in the county that they are voting for said new stadium you could only vote from open till 11:30 and then from 1pm to 4:30. so just before work not during lunch or when you get off work could anyone vote. largest primary turnout since the 80s and you couldn't fucking vote. oh and they ran out of paper ballots. oh and no professional team or even semi pro team to justify the stadium in the first place.

In Minnesota, we replaced a Heated/Air-Conditioned Covered Metrodome with Open Air Stadiums after said Metrodome has only been open for 31 years. And the first game the Baseball Team played in their new Stadium was met with Snow Removal shortly before the start of the game... The Metrodome was Great, but multiple Teams had to share it, so I guess it wasn't so great for them. Plus it was "old"!

That's what happens when teams are just corporations owned by billionaires and have no roots in a town. It gets treated like any other business wanting to rip off regions and countries with threats. The UK car industry had a lot of that behaviour from about 1980-2005, with brands like Rover being bought by BMW who threatened to close the production lines unless the government paid millions to upgrade the factory.

Using taxpayer money to build/support infrastructure for private profit has been most of the history of the united states. Just the most famous ones in our history include all the robber barons (think steel industry, railroads, oil, etc.) of the 19th century or the military-industrial complex that Eisenhower warned us about. And it continues to today.

Let all the teams move to LA. Then let an 8.0 earthquake hit. Why do citizens have to pay for new stadiums?
Jon Haymaker (26 дней назад)
So it's 2018. The Rams moved back to L.A. and they are getting a new stadium built as we speak. The Chargers moved to L.A. and they renovated the Stub Hub Center for them. There was a new soccer stadium built in L.A. and they have a new team called LAFC. Last but not least the Los Angeles Coliseum is being renovated for USC football.

American pro sports is a weird, terrible system. Franchises, drafts, relocating teams, corporate welfare and still making billions but only for the owners. In Europe teams do not relocate to other cities. Teams are build from their communities. Teams are part of the city they represent. The difference is that European sports is based on proper sporting values, American sports is a business. When Rams and Chargers moved to LA who went to see them play? The teams have no connection to the city so did Angelenos care? Do the new teams only get general fans that are interested in the sport? Those fans will never create a special spirit and atmosphere, they are there just to watch the game... NHL's Vegas Knights is a bit different because it's an expansion team and the shooting massacre created a need for community spirit. Also Knights' arena is paid with private money. Las Vegas still being suckers because they are paying for the NFL's Raiders.

American cant finds money for basic healthcare but has enough money to pay for fancy new stadiums with 0 profit coming towards their end. Holy fucking shit.
Carveros (28 дней назад)
So in America, they fucking tortured a man (yeah, I'm gonna call electrocuting someone hard enough to cause cardiac arrests sometimes, torture, sounds fair to me) just so they could afford a fucking sport team? Fucking shitheads.

Single-issue voting blocks always screw over the public good , and the media plays up to it because they don't employ any meaningful journalists.
Gregory Reese (30 дней назад)
I'll never get over being sad over John's constant misuse of the term "begs the question". I realize it's "on the writers", but he has to bear much of the blame for not insisting that they, the writers, get it right. Perpetuating ignorance seems like the very thing John Oliver would most object to.

What happened to keep politics out of sports?? Every city should immediately tax these fucking over fed pigs and if they dont like it, they can fuck off. Maybe a state sponsored sports team would be a better idea and investment.

I don't understand why no one else was enraged by his taunt of deer. As a Midwesterner, they killed three of my cars and kidnapped my first born. Fear the dear. I'm not joking about the cars though. They walk away too. They're monsters. Delicious monsters.

Well, that rap didn't work did it. And this concept of simply upping sticks and shipping off to another city, for whatever reason, is entirely strange to me. There's literally no reason to show loyalty to 'your' team if they can go somewhere else. Moreover, no reason to become a new fan just because a team drops itself in your city.
AdLambTV (1 месяц назад)
I love the fact that in America, teams can get away with moving cities & holding them up for paying for their new stadiums, if that happened here in England, there would be riots, Arsenal paid for The Emirates themselves, as did Spurs rebuilding White Hart Lane, Liverpool paid for their own expansion to Anfield, it’s ridiculous.
kyle magaro (1 месяц назад)
College stadiums are insane. It's so weird that when you look up the largest stadiums in the world a lot of them are in small towns in the Midwest and the South. In a lot of cases the stadium is bigger than the fucking city.
kyle magaro (1 месяц назад)
It's sad two of those teams actually moved to L.A.
