A new stadium in Uptown would be nice. It would cut my commute time in half
Was there when the norfolk tides were in town...i hear ya about the paint..it could be freshened up a bit but i think the 20yr structure is fine...

Does anyone know what the city is using to pay for the stadium? Is it going to come from the hotel tax? I see something different in the paper every day.

If people feel strong about it, take up a private collection, how is this the role for government.

I'm for it as long as there is a possibility of it becoming a Major League Stadium in the future. As it stands right now, I won't drive all the way down to Ft. Mill to see a minor league game.

As long as they are a minor league team that feeds the White Sox, I will not be there.

No. Period. The next time, it will be Jerry Richardson or one of his heirs asking the City/County to ante up to build a bigger and better stadium with a retractable top so the whine and cheese crowd can enjoy football in September AC comfort. With the City Manager talking up a 9% tax increase, many homeowners paying more in property taxes, Duke rate increase, water rate increase, price of gas and residual impact on food prices.....and this city council would even consider giving tax dollars to help build a baseball facility? If the baseball enterprise is expected to be a money maker for the owners, then let the owners pay the tab - NOT the taxpayers.

Do you feel the same way about incentives (tax $$) for businesses coming here?

Nothing sadder than a Cubs fan. Lol ; Well, maybe a Bobcats fan.
