    Good question. I am not a big football fan, I prefer hocky. But it seems to me that this being a "civilian" operation it should be cilivilian operated. This event does not involve transporation, shipping and or border crossing kind of things. But then, it is a big target for terrorists. The movie Black Sunday I believe it was called was a fair example. So I guess that's were it lays on the fine line of both. But if the TSA wants the to hire HLS to work it they should pay them for it. But then again an issue. Since HLS is not a contractual company but a federal organiztion should the tax payers be paying for it? Or just those that go to see the games? This is going to be an interesting issue to watch.

    -It's just a job kid deal with it

    -The industry needs to do one of two things; stop fiddling with the thin line and go forward or go back to that way it was. A flashlight in one hand and your set of keys in the other

      Normally, I would say Tampa. However, a biological or other catastrophic attack has the potential to affect more than just the sporting event. The cost should be split between the two with the government bearing the expense for the biological, etc. risk, and Tampa paying for general security.

            Um, I don't watch football.

                This year's superbowl will have military and a law enforcement montage of our federal, state, local and Canadian in addition to private security. Who pays? We all do as this particular game has worldwide interest and it is the federal, state and local governments to see it goes off without a hitch. The theory: in the interest of the public good; in this instance, it certainly does justify the total "international" expense.
