Two GUARDIAN readers have sent us a NY TIMES LINK to a national story about stadium construction.
It’s worth a read in light of the plans (apparently dormant) for a new HAWKS STADIUM in either Boise or Meridian and a major expansion of Boise State’s Football palace. It all boils down to money and no matter how you cut it, it ends up being public money–regardless of how the deals get structured behind urban renewal, booster associations, etc. We can probably toss in the ongoing convention center dream as well.
The GUARDIAN doesn’t really oppose any of the projects or their intent, but the TIMES piece points out the dangers in jumping on the “fan bandwagon.”…and you can’t be winners forever, just look at the Hawks.
