Kansas City Royals Want New Downtown Stadium After Disappointing Season

On the bright side, this bold ask guarantees that none of them will be "taking a knee" during the anthem anytime soon.

Are Royals headed to downtown KC? City starts talks, studies four sites

The city of Kansas City is funding a study of at least four potential sites for a downtown baseball stadium for the Kansas City Royals, according to documents obtained by The Star. A series of emails shows that Kansas City Manager Troy Schulte was involved in funding studies of four sites within the downtown loop that might be suitable for a baseball stadium.

There's not much parking now .and Johnson County Ks Residence would prefer KAUFMAN. AS WELL AS EASTERN JACKSON COUNTY RESIDENTS. AND WEST CENTRAL MISSOURI.

What about in Overland Park?

Sly Man is off on another fantasy. The losers paid to upgrade the existing field a few years ago. Forget it they are not worth talking about.

Is sLIE that lazy that he can’t leave downtown or it’s too far for him? Or is it that he’s too scared to leave downtown? It’s ridiculous to cram everything in one small place like downtown. It was moved out of downtown because there was not enough room to begin with and why do we need to waste more taxpayer dollars on bad ideas

Start by demolishing KCStar building and go from there.

So folks how much is this fantasy study going to cost the taxpayers? Who at city hall is getting some friends an easy high paying gig?

Meanwhile the city is falling apart and the Mayors office is worried about getting a losing ball team a new place to play?

What about all the money that has been sunk into Kauffman Stadium? Surly James isn't looking for a chance to remove the Kaufman name permanently from Kansas City baseball for say Cleaver or James himself or Buck O'Neil Ballpark. Oh I know what they are up to, they want it by the 18th and Vine area thinking that will be how to get out of that money pit. Sure, that's the ticket a new ball park in the 18th and Vine area will bring it lots of money.

You voters better get smart over there and get rid of this mentality at city hall.

Fuck no. Absolutely not. They can move on to another City as far as I’m concerned. Be the Royal Unicorns somewhere else.

Build the new stadium in Johnson County, please. They are the ones who buy the tickets and crap. Let JoCo pick up the tab.

Did any of you shit-eating morons actually bother to read the story? From your asinine comments you did not. The Royals had absolutely nothing to do with this! They said they are content to stay in Kauffman with nail 2030. Any new stadium would not even be considered until after that. Tony trolled the bottom feeders with his head line and you fucking geezers bit. Next time, READ THE FUCKING STORY!!!!

Stupid Dave... honestly...you didn't read the article did you? We can tell because your comments have nothing to do with the article whatsoever. So are you lazy or just illiterate?

I did read the article you morons.
And it says, "The city of Kansas City is funding a study of at least four potential sites for a downtown baseball stadium for the Kansas City Royals, according to documents obtained by The Star."

From reading all of that I would say that Dave is very correct in his opinion here you stupid fucking morons. Just for the record I agree with what he says.

Why the F*#! Is Troy Schulte spending any money on this?? Better yet, why does Troy Schulte still have a job?????

Don Cardinal said...

Nope. No feckless nu "urbanist",,dreams for bread and circus ball teams, paid for by you, the taxed and overtaxed.

It’s funny to think that parking would be okay downtown. They can’t stop people from breaking in now. 40,000 cars and no great ways to exit like there is now. Stupid. Can’t even get water bills down and still haven’t sold the plaza tennis courts.
I would not know anyone that would be happy to risk crime to watch a game downtown.
I talked to former baseball player who said , loosely translated, No.

Joseph Turner said...

Even though I don’t think it would be logistically feasible, financially responsible or necessary to have the Royals downtown, I’m supporting the idea just to PISS YOU PEOPLE OFF!!!

M-I-Z!!!!!!

@4:42AM who are you fooling? You don't go to games now. You are so out of touch it's not even funny. Did you know they have an arena downtown now? They have concerts there and everything! People go downtown all the time! Newsflash idiot-there is not 40,000 cars at the sports complex! My God you're a moron! I mean be honest, when was the last time you even left the house?? Go away dummy. You are too stupid to post here and that's saying something cause this blog is full of morons like chuck, Stupid Dave, Hogtied Silverback, and Krazy KKKracker.

A Lot of the above comments are right, though - this has nothing to do with the Royals, it's just the current City Council and Mayor pissing away taxpayer's money!

The Baseball team isn't going to leave he Stadium as long as they're still here, anyway!

Someone at 12th and Oak thought up a way to dump some cash into a Cousin's or Nephew's pocket, that's all!
