Rationalizing the DePaul new arena

Dave Zirin, sports editor for the Nation, explains to Turi the reason why building a new stadium for DePaul basketball is a bad idea. They speak to the ideas of cash flow, physical connection to the actual campus, and the popularity of the team the stadium is built for. They also hypothesize the real reason why Rahm is building the stadium in the first place. Casino anyone?
