It depends on the fine print, if there are assumptions that will require the county to assume the costs if not met (this seems common in stadium deals) or if it's structured so that the team could move and leave another entity which would then default on the hook (again pretty common) then its bad. I certainly don't trust owners saying the deal doesn't cost the county anything

I don't know much about economics but your last sentence is spot on.
