Local government pays big for unsuccessful game

Brent Schrotenboer of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that "more than $1.5 million of taxpayers' money has been spent subsidizing a lightly attended college football game played annually at Qualcomm Stadium since 1999." The Gold Coast Classic continues to receive government support despite a series of unpaid bills during the past several years. "The city apparently didn't know there were that many claims and judgments against the Gold Coast game."
