Whether you think this team will move, or get an SSS, or pull a Southlake.
I was under the impression that the Wizards were to be out no matter what after this year.
While I'm not privledged enough to have all the info the some do, I'm sure this could be negotiated with a new owner while an SSS was built. While Blue Valley is fun, pulling a "Southlake" and playing there for any amount of time might be a very poor idea.
A person would hope that Lamar would choose to act as a benefactor for local sports. He certainly stands to gain from the deal financially, as he has cut his costs (or at least the responsibility for them) and can reap pure profit.
For that reason, I voted 1-2, because it will take at least that long to get a stadium built.
My scenario based on nothing other than conjecture:
1. Local buyer buys team
2. SSS plans are revealed (it includes a roof for the new Cauldron!) -- to take let's say 3 years to build
3. Wizards stay at Arrowhead in the interim
4. Wizards move into new stadium and are re-branded The KCK/KCMO/JoCo MetroWizardStars
5. Free State Stadium Opens with Michael Owen wearing #10
How 'bout Boulevard Park
I'll take Aquafina Park if it means they stay
2 most likely as it will take a while to get the stadium built.
Your poll should only have two choices. Either the Wizards will be gone next year, or they will be there for two or three years while the new stadium is built. Those are the only real options at this point, and they depend entirely on who buys the club.
I dont care where you play as long as you fire the sound guy.
Wow... you have no idea what you're talking about.
Those aren't the only two options at all. Neg rep for coming in here and acting like you know what's going on when you have no clue.
I agree, before you post atleast have alittle bit knowledge as to what the hell is going on.
He may be dead flat wrong, but I don't see the big deal with his post. If you disagree with him, state your case.
I thought these boards were for discussing things, not blasting whoever does not have 'insider information'.
He's being "blasted" for the way he presented his post, not for posting it.
"Either the wizards will be gone..."
"Those are the only real options at this point..."
Need any more examples?
1) He's flat wrong.
2) He presented it like he knew what he was talking about and we were stupid for discussing other options.
Therefore: he got "blasted" for being wrong and the way he presented his opinion.
Whatever happened to 'I disagree with you, and here's why...'?
You guys are gonna make the San Jose board look open to varying opinions.
Would it have been acceptable if he put "I think" before his statement? Really, this is Bigsoccer. Almost every post is assumed to be an opinion. (At least that's how I see it).
This high-and-mighty, "I've been to HASF meetings and you don't know jack sh-t" routine is getting old real fast.
I really don't want to get into an arguement about this, but I just feel there are better ways to respond.
I didn't disagree with him. I said he was wrong. Which he is. Simple as that.
Yes, because it would have given his post a completely different tone.
The reason he got chastised was for making a post that had the tone of "you're all stupid for even discussing any options other than: blah blah blah."
What are we supposed to do? Not call him out on being wrong? Not call him out on the "you're all stupid" tone of his post?
We'll have to agree to disagree. I didn't sense that tone at all. Carry on.
That's rough, Merlin. What Colorado guy said seems like the two most viable options. What else is there, the ownership thing doesn't get resolved and they hang out for another year at Arrowhead?
One thing, I think the owner is important but it seems like if the city builds a stadium somewhere, whichever owner they choose, the team stays.
Murstien's still a douche though, right?
Where did you find that avatar of Drew Carey?
Wait, aren't you this guy:
If one of the 2 had to move I would prefer it be KC so would almost everyone else.
Are you scared of what an organization that has won two real cup competitions might do with a real owner?
As opposed to an organization that hasn't done anything, but will have a big announcement in 60-90 days?
That crowd on Wedensday cemented it for many.
It's not Drew Carey. Although he may someday be a member of the infamous Black Widows.
Right turn Clyde!
5,000 people with NO advertising to speak of? I'd like to think that's a good sign, rather than a death knell.
I don't want to see KC moved or any team for that matter. I actually think if you get a stadium with a committed owner you could probably do well. I just think it would be more favorable for the league to keep SJ rather than KC for various reasons if it came down to it.
