Re: People Urging NCAA to leave Indianapolis

Why would the NCAA move due to this law? It gives companies the right to discriminate, right? It doesn't force them to.

Re: PUMP UP THE ROOS!

Could you please expand on this? KU fans are obnoxious. :P Sounds like you weren't really a KU fan to begin with. I absolutely was. I was never going to go to KU, but I chose the college I went to in part because of its basketball program, which was pretty silly, but that's what being a Jayhawks fa...

Re: PUMP UP THE ROOS!

I would definitely root for the Roos if they were consistenly halfway decent for their level of competition. I'm a big college basketball fan, but my team plays a thousand miles away, so it would be nice to have a local option. I think I've been to one UMKC game ever, when they hosted Kansas at Mun...

Re: Downtown Mission/ The Gateway

What's the history of this project in terms of how the developer got his hands on this land? Did the city sell it to him after a bidding process with other developers? Or did the owners of the former mall sell it to him? Just seems like whoever sold it to this loser could've done their homework a li...

Re: Avenue 80- 80th and Metcalf

I believe much of this area around downtown OP has been rezoned to multi-family rather than single family residential. Hopefully this project is just a sign of what's to come. Glad to hear the retail will be fronting Metcalf.

I'm looking forward to the collapse of $25 event parking close to the sprint center. Will help more lots become buildings.


What is going to cause the price to collapse?

Re: Sporting Kansas City

Agreed. It read like a marketing piece for STAR bonds and greenfield developments. There are big issues related to that development - the Border War, a languishing downtown KCK - that weren't examined. It could have been a hell of a lot better. I'll give the guy a pass. He obviously isn't from KC. ...
