Sure, but how many of those stadiums require infrastructure improvements, have tax abatement, require public money for upgrades or maintenance...

They all do, but they also generate some rental income.  To the extent those categories exceed rental or other incomes to the jurisdiction, then I agree with you.

Afterthought - DC collects a 10% concessions tax at Nats Park built into every purchase, in addition to the tiny rent.  Those all mitigate costs to a variable extent.
