Shameless Plug

I wrote this paper on the effect of the construction of the Edward Jones Dome (NFL's Rams) and the Savvis Center (for the NHL's Blues) on construction employment and wages in St. Louis. If you follow what economists say on the subject, the findings aren't surprising. I don't find any evidence that construction employment was any higher or lower during the times these buildings were constructed.
