Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

Any hope they could keep the Steamer's name? That would be awesome. Or any name, as opposed to what seems like the very lame trend for most new MLS teams to be "FC (city name)". I think I am one of the very few that is bothered by this. I like cheesy, fun american sports branding with diverse names...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

I could also see the STL ownership wanting to be in the Eastern conference since STL has always considered itself part of the "East." From interactions I've had, there is an aversion to being considered anything in relation to the West other than the gateway to it. They will probably claim a bigger...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

we have plenty of space in downtown west for this thing (unfortunately). Yep, that area west of Union Station (or just downtown west, in general) is definitely not "prime land". It is quite empty, and the interchange there now is essentially wasted space. Something like this stadium would be a mass...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

Were there any discussions to repurpose the dome? Not that i'm aware of. In theory that seems logical, but unfortunately the dome would be wildly out of spec of the parameters that MLS is looking for. I would not want to attend a soccer game in a dome. That's where the repurposing comes in - remove...

Re: STL MLS proposal resurrection

the potential for a rivalry with kansas city is obvious and great for both cities... kc fans in particular will be able to board a train and be dropped off near this stadium in proper fashion.

this is also an area of downtown st. louis that could use ANY kind of shot in the arm.

This is a terrible part of the city, environmentally ravaged and blighted after decades of heavy industry I think this this is actually a really exciting project as labor and fuel continues to push overland truck shipping up and up in cost.

Re: PortKC launches new inland port development

a limiting factor for the missouri river is the last lock in the chain of rocks canal on the mississippi just north of st. louis, along with depth and all of the wing dikes. if they can scale these container ships down to work with that and still be profitable then great. all of the renderings of th...

Re: Big New STL Apartment Building

Re: PortKC launches new inland port development

Interesting

I always wondered why there was so little river activity around KC and on the missouri river in general. must be some navigational reason for that, or maybe just inertia with most of the ports being on the mississippi in the state.

Re: Interstate 70 KC to St Louis

Perhaps one thing that would help with passing would be making I-70 three lanes between Kansas City and St. Louis. I have wanted to see that for a long time. I-70 is probably the most important part of Missouri's highway system and KC and STL are large enough cities (with Columbia in the middle) to...

Just drove this weekend and I'm so done with this stretch of interstate. Its an absolute nightmare to drive. To many people drive in the left lane and refuse to get over so u have to pass in right lane. Truck passing is horrible on this stretch also. I really think Trucks shouldn't even be allowed ...

I could honestly see the next Blues Arena being built in the burbs also, following the line of thinking with the Braves new stadium.
