    Now i might be a bit off... but my impression was that the old survey that they refer to had the stadium as part of the waterfront redevelopment plan... so tehy were thinking sort of near where pomowest is, or a bit further south...

    Now this upsets me. I wrote an article about this two and a half years ago in the Lantern, and Dewey Stokes was preaching the same old thing. They'll never know what they are going to do - and by the time they do figure it out, bye bye Clippers.


    Bravo to the Franklin County Commissioners for continuously dragging their asses.

    They would be so dumb to rebuild it where it is now. There is NOTHING down where it is right now.......well, except if you want to visit a lost beloved one in the adjacent cemetary. I know drunken idiots like myself would go to a hell of a lot more games if it were in the Brewery District. That would be a great time.....no doubt about it.

    Does anyone know who to contact about this?? We should start a petition.

    There is a ton near that stadium. A ton of drug deals, protitution. shootings :)

    Last game I went to was two years ago, Myself Thump and buckeyegrad. dime a dog night. 18 innings. First game I have ever been to where they had two seventh inning strechs
     
  9. i remember three downtown locations, brewery, the one you are talking about and one in proximity of nationwide (south east of it) the nationwide spot was developed i think they put condos and such in there along with the ubs builiding

    strohs Go Bucks!

    Downtown >> ghetto that its in now.
    I just wish it wasnt the damn Yankees, I just dont want to support them in any way.
    However if it was downtown and I had a few beers first, I would probably be OK with it.
     
  11. the yanks dont own the team, franklin county taxpayers do, but granted its a pin stripe farm team

    Nate I am Nate and I approved this message.

    I understand the reasoning behind wanting to move it but if they build a new stadium and raise ticket prices 15 to 20 percent along with vending, is the new location going to make up for the increased cost?

    We're talking about AAA baseball here. And a team that sucks because the Yanks trade thier good players to first chance they get for expensive trade bait at the deadline every year.

    I think it will be a mistake to build new because I'm not sure if the new location will be much more of a draw for the increased cost. I could be wrong.
     
  13. Tickets range i think from 3to 9 bucks for kids and 5 to 9 bucks for adults, very reasonable i think. hell its the same as a high school game. raise those prices 20% and give me the same product in a nicer venue thats fine with me.

    the clippers won the govenors cup recently in 1987,1991,1992,1996, and where runners up in 1985,1990,1997

    ask me then what have they done for me recently...

    in 03 they were 76-68 (second in the division)
    04 they were 80-64 (first place in the west division)
