ONCE AGAIN SUPER DAVE DEBUNKS KANSAS CITY VISITOR COUNTS!!!



In an era of social media gamesmanship and a dearth of fact checking, our pal Super Dave shares his real world perspective . . .

Super Dave Seys:

"Huge weekend concert taking place in Rockingham NC. Sort of like Rockfest here but then nooooooooo where close either. This has all the looks of a very professional 3 day festival.

"Here's my point. Look at the picture taken last night of the crowd. The maximum number of tickets to be sold was 90k. Rod Zombie on his site claims there is 27k in the audience watching them play.

"At this venue they had control of the entrances and a good idea of the head count. Compare this crowd to the so-called "visitor" numbers that many local civic groups tout with little or no proof."



"We need to yell back, "You Liars." 800k Royal fans??? I really doubt it. Arrowhead will hold 76k of folks jammed packed in there like sardines now imagine how much space that would take up if on flat ground . . . I hate cities that openly lie to you."

Tony says tons of things without any proof Stupor Dave, why not jump up his ass?

Oh, yeah, I know why. You're already up it.

This may give you a little more clarity.

"I hate cities that openly lie to you."

So move.

Or die.

Either one would be fine.

Well, actually, SillyDave is right, this time.

I disagree with you super dumb fuck. The picture does not show the whole picture. That crowd is packed in at union station and the street are packed with people all the way towards the sprint center. I don’t know the number but it dwarfs any crowd I have ever seen.

I'd guess that there was some method to arriving at 25 million visitors per year, but most likely it's so embarrassingly ridiculous that nobody dares to explain it. It probably counts every automobile that drives through KC on the way to somewhere else. Multiply that number by 2 on the assumption that each auto contains at least two riders. Every airplane that lands at MCI contains around 100 visitors. It could also include people who live in JoCo or Blue Springs but work in KC - they visit KC every work day each year. Times two of course.

Whatever. The city's obvious goal was to fool all of the people some of the time.

@2:15 you are correct it is Rob. I was just sending a note to Tony and didn't think he would put it on here and I used voice to text and didn't proofread it. My bad. So with that said I am sure you're very ok with me calling you a douchebag troll who simply couldn't point out an error but had to retort to name calling along with it. Are you one of those douchebag trolls who thinks they are such a perfect person you never ever do anything wrong and was placed upon this planet to write retarded responses because you do nothing wrong ever?

Stupor Dave was looking at his crotch when he wrote that as that's what his wife calls his penis: Rod Zombie.

Sorry, but did the poseur have a point here? Or are you just throwing douchebag around like you just learned the word?

Super Dave, what the fuck kind of background do you have that would give me confidence in anything you say. You pretty much claim to be an expert on, well, every subject. My guess is you basically peruse weirdo tin foil hat websites and that's where you get "learned".

Hard pass on Super Dave thoughts.

"If you torture statistics long enough they'll tell you whatever you want to hear".

I'm sure if one really wanted to they could come up with some kind of "facts" that support the 25 million visitor number. Kansas City lies on the border of Kansas and Missouri. More importantly, it's surrounded by Gladstone, Raytown, Independence, Lee's Summit, Roeland Park, Overland Park, Prairie Village, etc....Many of the residents of the the surrounding suburbs do have need to travel to and thru KCMO proper. So one could take those numbers of people and come to a conclusion that 25 million non-KCMO persons did "visit" KCMO proper. Although not "visit" in the traditional sense.

I find it hard to believe that 25 million people from outside the KC metropolitan area are coming to KCMO proper and spending significant amounts of time and money in KCMO. Approximately 40 million people visited Las Vegas in 2018. Are we to believe that KCMO is even in the same stratosphere as Sin City in terms of visitors?

Political agendas dictate truth in this country. If your goal is to sell the people that all this subsidizing of private development is fueling the uptick in "visitors" then of course you're going to drub up a stat (no matter how unrealistic) to support that claim.

I'm a lifelong Kansas Citian. But KC is what it is. We don't have mountains, we don't have lakes, we don't have tons of massive casinos (although we have a few), we don't have things that draw nationally and internationally like Chicago, Orlando, LA, Vegas, etc. So how are we supposed to believe that KCMO, despite all the tax payer funded development the last 10+ years, has all of a sudden become this hot tourist/visitor, destination? Short answer: it hasn't. I'm sure there has been some level of uptick. But to the tune of 25 million? Not likely....unless you're counting ANYONE from anywhere (including the outlying suburbs) as "visitors".
