Will Downtown Kansas City Ever Get The Pro-Sports Team We Were Promised???

Almost a decade ago, Mayor Kay Barnes said that a pro-team would come to Downtown Kansas City IF voters approved the $300 MILLION Sprint Center project based on nothing more than big talk . . . In the aftermath, there has been a great deal of hype about the place as a concert venue but it's mostly the last stop on national tours for b-list acts. Even worse, the arena is rapidly aging an hasn't helped the P&L District from costing local taxpayers more than $15 MILLION a year worth of financing.

Still, hope remains that the promise of an NBA team could finally fulfill one of the most shameful broken promises in Kansas City.

If you want to see a bunch of smack talking, rap listening, criminal black men chasing after one another, just go down to Prospect and Paseo, you don't need the NBA.

Every developer and huckster knows that you don't do anything in KC without the help of the taxpayer. No team owner in his right mind will move here without guarantees.

Yael was in full cheerleader regalia for Kay Barnes' failed policies toward Power and Light District and Sprint Center.

Funny, he doesn't bring that up anymore.

The city has failed to support the last NBA franchise it had as well as the last NHL franchise it had. Not a good track record. Kay Barnes'

So we're still being punished for a basketball franchise that left in the mid 80s and a NHL franchise that left in the mid 70s.

Yet people are talking about a expansion football team for STL. Get real man.

The 5th most popular venue in the United States, 3 rd in profit.
We don't need a 3rd rate sports team
Basketball games are the most expensive tickets in the country, this city wouldn't support a Hockey or Basketball team
