Stadium News

It looks like we may be waiting on a bit more then just the governor's signature, like I had thought we were for the stadium. A few of the KC city council members presented the redevelopment to the Missouri Development Finance Board yesterday. While the group got a good vibe from the meeting, the article does has some pretty sobering news for Wizards fans. Councilman John Sharp said that a decision was not expected until their meeting on August 19th, and since this is one of the last major hurdles, will delay this project a bit further.

While Greg Cotton said on the radio recently that they are planning for a late summer/early fall demolition and start to construction, with a 14-16 month time frame, you have to begin to question whether the Wizards will have their stadium done in time for the 2010 season, or whether they will begin the season with an extended road trip.
