So, why does anybody give that much of a shit which side of the river the stadium is on? For the record I like Arrowhead exactly as it is and have no idea why anybody wants to fuck with it. Kaufmann too for that matter. But if they do decide to fuck with it, who cares which side of the river its on? Other than the tax money funding it, if its in the metro its really the same difference. In Little Rock the built the nice new 20k seat arena on the North Little Rock side of the river. Nobody in Little Rock was pissed about it. For some it will be less convenient, for some more convenient, but on the large, its a pointless debate. Driving in from Fayetteville its all the same

North Little Rock is still in Arkansas. KCK isn’t in Mo.
That’s the only reason.
The WFT has moved from DC to MD to (almost) Va and back to DC in the time I’ve been here. No one cares.

the inverter ones are cool, quieter and less distance to an opening. not as much juice but you can daisy chain them if you need it

Yes…. But every thing is so expensive, and it seems tornado alley is slowly creeping down this way so I thought about investing in a shelter. But I’m sure that’ll stay on the list as well..

What happened to having a separation between church and state?
And what happened to freedom of religion?

While I love the 10 commandments, how is this constitutional?

I’ve heard discussions about a retractable roof. Personally, I’d prefer they keep the open-air concept. As we saw in January, playing in the cold can be a real intimidation factor. Also, if they do choose to build a new stadium, can they think about crowd noise and how that’s affected as well?

a roof, however, might help prevent people from getting frostbite

True, though games like that don’t happen too often…as far as I know, anyway.

I hope the Chiefs and Royals stay put.

Why? Because my family cemetery is DIRECTLY across the street from the proposed new parking lot.

I’m afraid they will be trampled and otherwise disrespected and that their beautiful, quiet space will be turned into a party zone. 😖😢
