Re: Truman Sports Complex or bust?

Actually, the Royals need a downtown stadium a lot more than Downtown does.  But the current owner isn't interested in a new stadium for a team that he will either sell or liquidate within a few years. What the Royals need is to win some games.  You can put a beautiful stadium in the hear...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

But my point is that it was still better than having them lose all the money during the season under the old system and folding at the end of the year.  Its better to get a scar then to die.  At least they can recover from this, even if short term it might not have been the best thing. It...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

Loosing an entire season was good for the NHL.  The owners even said that they were making more money than if the players had been playing, thats how messed up the salarys were in the league.  Almost 85% of the money made went to the players, did you know Hockey players are the highest pa...

Re: Super Bowl odds

Preist is old news. The chiefs said larry johnson proved himself last year so they are giving the starting spot to larry not priest! It may just be for the first few games though. You might want to start getting your news from somewhere that doesn't just make it up.  Priest is the starter, Pri...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

Did you crawl through the pipes? I''m not necessarily saying the Chiefs aren't BSing us, but it wouldn't surprise me to hear that Jackson County hasn't been maintaining repairs on infrastructure like plumbing and wear and tear repairs. There are many things in the stadium that are falling apart.&nb...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

-The Chiefs are playing in a 30+ year old sports complex So?  Thirty years doesn't have to be the pre-determined lifespan for a stadium.  Most of the other stadiums that were built at the same time as Arrowhead and Kauffman that have been replaced recently were crap .  Multiuse stadi...

Re: Jackson County discusses stadium upgrades

Downtown baseball makes the product attractive even when the team sucks and lets face it the Royals will need that help more years than not. You might think so, but the numbers don't support it.  Look at the attendance figures of any bad team with a new downtown stadium.  Attendance has n...

Re: TY LAW

Yes - actually, he is.  He runs one of only 3 franchises not to win a playoff game in the last 11 years. Now that he's got an offense that rewrites NFL record books every season, he's made every right move to try to fix the defense.  He's certainly made some questionable moves over those ...

Re: Trade Bait for the Royals

You are forgettting one very important point about Wily Mo - he has a tremendous upside and is also still only 23 years old. And like you pointed out with Grienke, you can't look at the stats to determine long term trade value.  I agree that two young arms is a high price to pay, but we do hav...

Re: Trade Bait for the Royals

I don't expect Sweeney or Stairs to be traded.  The Royals don't need to dump salary and Sweeney's contract doesn't expire until 2007, so it's not at all similar to the Beltran situation last year.  The only way Sweeney moves is if the Royals are presented with an incredibly sweet deal for...

Why? ... Why not? Should we allow people to sin any longer freely? Take a look at where society has gone in the past century... Sure they had protitution, gambling, etc... in the 1800s, but they didn't have widespread use of drugs. So your assertion is that strip clubs lead to drug use (although it...

Re: NYC's Freedom Tower altered...

A little late with this, since I've been out of town, but I've got to add my two cents. The new design is a little better than the original design, which I thought was just ugly and pretentious, but I still don't like it.  I don't know how you can really justify a 69-story building that's 1776 ...

Re: Strong Earthquake Risk to Central U.S.

This isn't really news.  The media retreads this story a couple times a year in their endless campaign of fearmongering.  It'll happen when it happens and there's little you can do except try to build sturdy buildings and make sure you've seen all you want to see in Memphis and St. Louis.

I'm not an unconventional weapons expert by any stretch, but I think the whole EMP thing may be an urban legend that took some grain of truth and stretched it to the extreme (the neutron bomb is another example). If such devices (EMPs, not neutron bombs) were easy to build or obtain, I would think ...
