    Like peak oil, peak stadium thread is likely to come much, much later than we imagine.

    Standards of cognitive dissonance will be raised.

    It strikes me that the stadium search is not going well.

    You know, you're right, it really isn't. Seems I search for our stadium 17 times a year but somehow keep ending up in a baseball stadium for some reason. Not going well at all.

    Stadium thread will hit 1,000,000 views before we get an announcement from the club.

    I’m afraid there might be a compliment to sweat in here somewhere. And I’ll be damned if I let it go unchecked. He is the supreme, extra-cheesiest version of shit on a pitch ever.

    That is all. Carry on.

    “There’s only one other facility that has done it, and that’s Yankee Stadium with New York FC. The difference there is there’s an equity piece with the Yankees and that particular team,” Bowers said. “There’s a million-dollar-a-game commitment by the team to the Yankees to overcome some of those operational challenges, none of which we think is really in the cards here given the conversations we’ve had with MLS Miami.”


    CFG has already paid $68 million to the Yankees for conversion. Yikes.

    Anyone who thinks the club is not interested in getting the stadium issue resolved is nuts.
    You can think they've handled it poorly; complain all you want about the time it is taking.
    But the idea the club is happy to stay at YS is ridiculous.

    Agreed that it really makes no sense in any respect. Like those string along like the Revs suggestions.

    There’s a flip side to that too, that while CFG is committed to finding a site, if WP isn’t a solution and the Bronx (or elsewhere) isn’t panning out, there’s going to be a tipping point where this $1m/games becomes a never-ending albatross. ~10+ years of rent payment plus a new $500m stadium is tough to swallow. That’s part of why I suggested in the QFC discussion that CFG *may* look to offload if a near-term stadium project isn’t viable.

    Yes, 10 years plus probably means fold or sell are better options which means they certainly have been/are all in on the search.

    Frankly, it's amazing it's taken this long despite this fee. They could have easily jumped at a site that wouldn't be the best one just to get out of that ~$15M/year payment (remember it's not exactly $1M for every game since they sometimes host two games with one conversion), but they haven't. That tells me they're in this for the right reasons, and they really do want to find a site that will make this team viable for decades.

    The club may be looking at 10 years at this point as a min before opening a stadium. 3+ years of design/construction plus any regulatory and/or community reviews for the other 1-2 years.

    That's consistent with my 5 year to announce/10 year to move in comfort level/expectation I had during season 1, so I hope that I was close to on track.

    Imagine having an equity stake and charging the soccer team $1 million a game.
