Reader input: sports center

Three major international sporting goods companies are located in the Portland metro area: Nike, Adidas and Columbia Sportswear.

Readers were split on support for public financing of sports facilities, although a majority agreed professional sports teams and their venues boost the local economy. The survey was conducted in February by research partner CFM Strategic Communications.
