Is Tom Benson even necessary?

Not a new idea on this blog, but given the massive public investment the state and city make in facilities and subsidies for the Saints and Pelicans, and given that both teams' trademarks are based on the names and symbols.. the public intellectual property.. of the city and region, isn't it a valid argument that the teams really belong more to us than they do to the billionaire who leeches off of the profits for.. some reason?

Just have the state claim the teams. We've already paid for them. Then nobody has to worry about Gayle v Rita anymore.

Here's John Oliver.
