And this is the main reason I need to leave this place, moved here 3 years ago from NY, the set of mind of people from JoCo thinking they are more than just a glorified suburb in the midwest, thinking that everything urban is bad, and thinking everything in the metro is because of them.

Or try to live in KC with the JO County people thinking they run the KC area. JO County is the main reason I don't miss living in KC.

I didn't say any of what you just said. All I said is that without input from the Kansas side financially, there wouldn't be a professional baseball or football team in Kansas City. That is the simple fact. If you only had the population on the Missouri side, that would not be enough to support either stadium. Get butt hurt over it if you want to, but it's the truth. I didn't say the Johnson county owns the stadiums or that they are superior. I am just saying that they are part of the KC Metro and removed Johnson County from the equation there would be no professional teams here.

Missouri has pro teams because our cities are bigger. There is a reason the Chiefs and Royals are in Kansas City and not Topeka

What Kansas did at the RNC this year was somewhat embarrassing because it made Royals nation look like a bunch of farmers who were just a little too excited about that World Series. It also seemed to be a blatant attempt to make the nation believe the Royals play in Kansas. Missouri straightened it out, but it was quite strange altogether.
I appreciate that Kansas is Royals territory, but the championship team was in another state. Just silly on their part and a bad look for KC (since so many still assume it is in Kansas).

Well, I wasn't at the RNC. All I have said in this thread is that without attendance and support from the Kansas side of the metro, we would not have a Royals or Chiefs team in Kansas City. Attendance and financial support from the Missouri side alone would not be enough.

Stadiums are on the Missouri side, but Kansas is part of the Kansas City metro. Likewise, Kansas Speedway and Sporting KC are on the Kansas side, but they are part of the Kansas City metro.

You probably already do this, but I live in the city and spend most of my free time in the city, yet I technically work in Northeast Johnson County. Frankly, I don't run into these petty discussions outside of the internet and if you're spending most of your time in KCMO, JOCO is nothing but a decent suburb south of the city.

In 2016, it's a bi-state metro where Johnson County wouldn't exist without KCMO and vice versa. I'm a KC supporter, but as a transplant to the area and although each entity may work against each other, the Metro has two important halves that are separated by a state line. In the end, it's all the Kansas City Metro Area.

I don't work in Kansas and never will. I hardly ever go past the stateline (and never needed to) other than a few times when I first got here. Before I pay any tax to these idiots in Topeka, I would rather look for opportunities elsewhere. Sorry for the strong sentiment but it s a personal one.

You keep insisting that the Royals belong to the entire metro, and they do. But the stadiums DO NOT. They belong to Jackson County. And that's where the commercials were filmed.

Also, you're acting like it's the "Kansas City" Lottery. It's the Kansas Lottery. It's a government-run program that has willfully chosen to highlight an amenity in a separate state to promote itself. It's as if they're saying, "Hey, there's nothing good in Kansas! But at least there's some good stuff nearby!"

I think the Kansas lottery helps sponser Royals promotions, as does the Missouri lottery. That's why they used the Royals in their commercial
