Let players pay for stadium upkeep

Maybe the Royals and Chiefs players, coaches and staff could take a 10 percent pay cut, and that would give them the $2 million that Mayor Funkhouser wants to cut for stadium upkeep (3/6, A-1, “More layoffs suggested.”).

Isn’t it time for everyone to step up to the plate and give back some of their riches so that the city, county, state and nation gets back into the black? People out here are cutting back, so it is time for the millionaire ball players and owners to bear some of the burden and cut back.

Threatening to move to another city is ludicrous. Who wants losing teams?
