What's behind the poll?

I didn't vote in the poll about Petco/payroll since I don't know enough about it. But can someone explain it to me?

As a Marlins fan (and a closet Pads fan), this is interesting to me because the Marlins are pushing for a publicly funded stadium.

I thought the Padres got their new park but are somehow obligated to keep the ticket prices low/keep them around the Qualcomm/Jack levels for a few years. If that's the case, that's pretty good for the fans because it keeps the games semi-affordable.

But was the stadium supposed to bring a payroll increase too?

We're getting mixed messages about that for the Marlins (even though they don't have a deal for a stadium yet). Some are saying the payroll would go up with a new park. Others are saying that it would stay the same but the Marlins wouldn't lose money anymore.
