Erik Bruvold of National University's Think Tank said the report is deeply flawed.
What the report is talking about is new money flowing into the economy, rather than money being spent on beer, bars, and entertainment that would simply be shifted to the stadium, said Bruvold.
"What we're looking at is a wash. You're really looking at Peter getting robbed to pay Paul, and there's gonna be very minimal economic impact," said Bruvold.
Bruvold said the report strayed far afield of the standards and procedures adopted over decades to produce a report the client wanted to hear.
