GOM you said:

I'd still like to see Leo's St. Boniface plan. Although I do like the U of M locale.

The U of M locale is public or government land and anything else would be probably private land that would have to be leased etc..and...

And what I was trying to get at in my other post about Polo Park is that the "actual land" that the stadium is built on right now is in "Private Hands"...GGF

DeanK's post was made at 10:00am, so he probably had been up for some time. Why do you post such nonsense? Stay on topic. This is about the new stadium deal.

Selinger has not (yet) announced how much tax funds will be diverted into a few deep pockets, probably wise to not mention any numbers so shortly after a deficit budget. As the Romans have demonstrated, arenas and games work well to appease the starving populace.

If built could we bring back the "Old Roman Gladiator" thing ...and...

And perhaps throw a few politicians and perhaps others in with the "lions" on opening day to further appease the starving populace?...GGF

Who mandated the Board to sell the Bombers btw? That's something that's never been discussed.

I've said this before and I'll say it again. Asper had a clash with some of the bomber execs, he stormed out and quit the board.
He came up with this idea to gain the bombers by making money using creative accounting and goverment welfare. Ultimately he would get something for nothing. We would all be left to worship his golden calf that we paid for in exchange for our football club.

last night on global "news" heather steele had a "report" on how much more taxpayers would be out if asper as left out of the deal. and that the recession is to blame for david aspers problems. the aspers must think people are mighty stupid not to see through their attempted manipulation and lies. if people want to avoid future "save the bombers" campaigns with pleas for public cash on a continual basis, they will support any asper ouster.

I thought that he threw a fit at the team one day and the coach....which was out of line for a Board member...and he resigned as a result.

He must have friends on the Board to get such a sweetheart deal.

This new guy sounds like a big suck-up so the legacy continues eh.

100 is what silly wants

150+ is just out of nowhere

not quite 6% believe that 100 is the right thing. 46% believe that at least 150 is better.

I dont get the 6%. Why? Why should Winnipeg go for something smaller and less useful? Either all the way or none of the way is what it needs to be, AND all the way better damn well include Asper Fing off.
