I've decided comments sections in articles are worthless

http://www.startribune.com/sports/vikings/blogs/123633444.html

I just finished reading an oh so pleasant Star Tribune article about the Vikings talking with AEG and how AEG is targeting them along with 4 other teams to relocate the team to LA.  Now the article itself isn't bad, not great but not bad, but i was browsing through it, and once i got to the comments section figured out that people who comment after articles are the lowest form of society out there. 

With comments like 'good riddance' and 'don't let the door hit you on the way out' it makes me wonder what the real point of these types of sections are for.

even the people who try to 'make a point' and say things like 'billionaire owners want to get the tax payers to put up their stadiums and threaten to leave the state' blah blah blah sound stupid.  How short sided thinking is it when the ownership group has already committed close to half of the cost, but still is asking for a partnership, knowing the state will benefit from it as well.

But the thing that really gets me about the above argument, is people saying 'he is a billionaire, he should be able to afford a billion dollar stadium.  It’s kind of the same thing as 'i make 30,000 a year, i should be able to buy a 30,000 dollar car; doesn’t make a lot of sense.

But now here is my question; does anyone really know the point of having comment sections on articles? I haven't found one.
