right. stadium or nothing. i understand you better than you understand youI think we operate on different planes of existence --- some people you just can't connect with for whatever reason - clearly that is the case in spades here.
Again I have made clear that I think there are probably other better uses of development funds, like we saw in Albany or Buffalo. Rubin was right to point that out.
However a deal was in place to get a stadium built here with real money, private market support etc...they weren't debating investment priorities and decided upon a stadium. SU wanted money, the county went after it, the gov wants something to hang his hat on when he campaigns for higher office so he's on board - and now its going nowhere. there is not some magical pool of private/public combo money waiting around for any project you might dream up. It as ready for a stadium and it's not waiting for people to get their act together. What's difficult to understand about that?
