    Cincinnati should have an announcement within the next 7 days per Reddit posts.

    EDIT: Regarding a selected site and financing to back it.

    Supposedly they have made progress on the "compromise" site in the Oakley neighborhood. It isn't really downtown, but it isn't in Kentucky either. They're going to announcing a financing plan by tomorrow according to the rumor.

    I really don't understand why people hate the Kentucky site so much. It seems like an amazing site with awesome views of downtown. But because it's in Kentucky, people hate it. Apparently, more of the fanbase is from the north side of town though, so the Oakley site is actually closer to the fans despite being on the edge of Cincy proper.

    Also, this is not the same as NYC v NJ. Not sure if I have to explain that to this audience or not.

    well saying its NOT nyc vs nj then that helps with perspective....but i dont know what the people in their area feel

    i mean giants and jets both played in city before going to NJ ( giants played decades in city), cincy would only have 2 years of existance so not much of a following that is willing to "migrate" to other other state

    i mean it can defeat the purpose of calling something cincy when they play in another state even if next to each other

    For me, the NJ/NY thing has to do with distance and travel time. The KY site is 5 min from downtown Cincinnati over a bridge.

    I guess the best analogy is probably a Hoboken stadium. Would you rather us be in Hoboken right outside the PATH station? Or way out at Aqueduct? That's kind of the choice facing the club.

    With Columbus off to Texas, bringing in Cincinnati to replace them in Ohio, would make sense.

    I’m not trying to be snarky but how is this announcement any different than the last 2 Miami announcements.

    These media outlets are all like, “hey everybody, this is an announcement announcing that there will be a big announcement coming soon to make an even BIGGER announcement”

    This could easily be our stadium thread if the Club decided to announce every small development or attempt at negotiating a site. The silence can be frustrating, but I am glad we aren’t like Miami.

    Well, they have the land for stadium for one.

    Not blaming you for skepticism though. Shovel hits the ground is when we believe.

    I believe the last issue was a law suit over the sale of government property without opening it up to the general public for a bid.
