Re: NHL OR NBA, let the message board decide!!

All of those tournaments will come anyways, look at MSG. I'm tired of this argument, just feels like we gave up way too easily on that.

Plus, having a team in there would help them through the pandemic & all too.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

We stream in our place but none of those offer the channel surfing aspect that he desires. If any of them could connect via your phone to a remote so he could flip like that, my life would become easier when the inevitable switch happens.

Re: Do you have or plan to get Google Fiber?

I believe it's because HBO wants you to provide HBO Max now if you broadcast regular TV HBO & they're slowly closing it down. I just dread having to get my parents back to cable because my dad likes the flipping around aspect that you still can't really get with streaming.

Re: Tiffany Springs

I've spent the last decade driving all over that area since it's still mostly rural & relaxing. All to be chopped down in the name of further progress yet again. Shame.

Re: Develop the area around the TSC?

I still don't believe the city would ever allow the Chiefs to leave the city. While they probably & hopefully won't give them any more money for stadium improvements/new build, they'll find other ways to make it happen. I think the backlash on public funded stadiums has finally started to usher out ...

Seattle & Vegas NHL teams will do everything in their power to try & stop this at the same time they attempt to build up a fan base.

You can barely see PDX's glass canopy over their garage. I hate it as well but at least it's still moving along. I'll take anything at this point.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

What % of downtown residents do you think will attend a Royals game downtown. If you want to fill a 35k seat stadium it will need to be 116% x 81 games. (I know, out of towners, conventioners and people working downtown will got too). Personaly it think it will be a wash between the number that wil...

The Greatest Generation are all but gone, & so is the Silent Generation. I see just as many boomers out as young people. They just love blaming millennials for everything, even though the youngest are pretty much above 25 now.

Re: Downtown Baseball Stadium

FWIW, sporting designed their stadium with expansion in mind. They can add 8k seats to the east end of the stadium alone. Here’s a star article from a few years back on it: http://www.kansascity.com/sports/mls/sporting-kc/article137046573.html Much too late to expand. They'll move sooner than later...

Re: Would you like to see the Royals move to a downtown stadium?

Love how everyone here unlike everywhere else is certain the Royals are gone but there is only two cities willing to build a baseball stadium big enough for MLB & they're either already getting a team sort of (Montreal) or are likely to get an expansion team if they get anything at all ala Raleigh.

Re: Next Mayor 2019

It's strange that Kansas City is inarguably in the best shape it's been in decades and people are like "eff these bums at City Hall". The Star editorial seemed to penalize anyone who had a meaningful role at City Hall in the last 4 years. I thought that was odd as well. They need clicks and so want...

They just dropped a bunch of money on SKC.
