The Kansas City Chiefs have desired a dome for nearly 50 years.
The initial designs for the Truman Sports complex included two domes.
As construction moved closer in the Fall of '72 . . . Local leaders envisioned a moving dome-like structure for both stadiums.
The "rolling roof" idea resurfaced in 2006 when voters rejected the whimsical idea but agreed to the ransom on extensive stadium repairs.
Now . . .
The Kansas City Chiefs have an opportunity to play indoors and maximize their game day profits given that their lease also expires in 2031.
Accordingly and because the current White House administration has shown us that money isn't real and can be printed at a whim . . .
INSIDERS: KANSAS CITY CHIEFS SUPPORT DOWNTOWN STADIUM FOR ROYALS BECAUSE THAT GETS THEM ONE STEP CLOSER TO ASKING FOR TAXPAYER HELP TO BUILD AN EPIC DOME!!!
Of course Clark Hunt would be proud to help build the drop top dome that his dad never accomplished. Moreover, and despite tax fighter outcry . . . New construction, jobs and football is an easy sell to local voters.

In truly capitalist fashion . . . The plebs will asked . . . With a straight face . . .
Why build just one stadium when Kansas City can build two for double the price?!?!
