Tuesday Night Open Thread: Arrowhead Is On The Ballot Tonight

 295 replies

Welcome to AG’s nightly Open Thread, drop in and join a conversation, or start one yourself.

Tonight is election night for many cities and school districts. While I have one race I’ll be watching closely, the Chiefs are also on the ballot. If Question 1 passes in Jackson County tonight, the Chiefs will be in Arrowhead for decades to come. If it fails, then their future is up in the air (although they’d probably still find a way to stay in Arrowhead for several more decades).

As someone who does not live in Jackson County, MO, what are the options here? Other than moving, what else can they do?

Because why pay for it all and then have to share revenue profits with the city and county that they are bringing a lot of business to? Also why pay for it all when other cities will be more than happy to build them a brand new stadium to bring the greatest QB to ever play and a multiple SB winning team and legendary HC and GM combo to their city.

Andy Reid will be retired and Mahomes will be 36 by the time they could potentially move to a new city.

ya, well…..no shame there. I probably don’t agree with most of his politics, but the guy saw an opportunity, campaigned, raised money and got on a ballot to try to implement what he felt was positive change instead of just complaining like everyone else. That is more than 99.999999999% of any us have ever done

The Royals are now dating other locations and the Chiefs are likely as well.

It takes 2-3 years to build a stadium from a construction standpoint. Plus 1-2 years of haggling with taxpayers and voters.
The lease is until 2031, but both teams will have to make a decision in the next two years.

I can’t believe so many aren’t understanding how big of a screw up this is for Jackson County.

Essentially the teams were under contract with the county with the county holding excluse rights options for future years.

Now the teams are free agents and Jackson County has to compete with other offers if they want to keep them.

People often don’t know or appreciate what they have until it’s gone. Surprisingly though the declining of the renewal comes on the heels of four Superbowl appearances, 3 Superbowl wins, and the stretch of history in which we have had on our favorite team, the greatest QB, Head Coach, and GM in the history of our franchise who will also be arguably considered the best or among the best at their positions in league history.

It is still too early to know. Only about 6% of the votes are reported so far.

As someone that lives in SW MO without the ability to vote, I am perplexed by how dumb the vote no crowd sounds.

The Royals could have a new downtown stadium that would also improve mass transit into the city. Arrowhead could have renovations to improve fan experience in the stadium and also greatly alleviate pedestrian traffic before and after games. Both things would ensure the teams stay in your county for the next 25 years.

All that can be achieved without any new taxes or impact on bank account. And they are voting no.

If the no vote wins, the best case scenario is the Royals move to Kansas. And the Chiefs may still stay at Arrowhead.
Worst case scenario. The Royals move to Carolina or Nashville and the Chiefs go to KS alone. KS has legal sports betting and have an easy way to pay for stadiums.

Windows 11 or Windows 10

Press and hold the Windows ( ) key, and then press the q key.
   
In the Search box, type Touchpad.

Select Touchpad settings (System settings).

Look for a Touchpad On/Off toggle. When there is a Touchpad On/Off toggle option: Select the Touchpad On/Off toggle to turn the touchpad on or off.

Press the corresponding button (such as F6, F8 or Fn+F6/F8/Delete) to disable the touchpad. If the shortcut key does not disable or enable the touchpad, go to Lenovo support website to download and install the latest touchpad driver, then retry.
