And as far as the cost, isn't some of that being deferred due to the name of the place. HL&P must be paying something like 15-25 mil per year for that place to be called Reliant. I can't find anywhere to confirm a figure for Reliant but this Wiki
says $20 mil/year is typical for major mkt sports stadiums.
Reliant is paying $300 million over 30 years. It is the 3rd richest naming rights deal in Sports behind MetLife (Jets/Giants) and the new AT&T deal with the Cowboys.
