THE LOCAL QUASI-GOVERNMENTAL SPORTS AGENCY THAT has been on shaky financial footing several times in recent years (including, er, now!) will oversee construction of the quasi-privately funded Dynamo stadium, and then manage it. Will the Dynamo pay for their own grass? Will taxpayers pay for Dynamo parking while the Dynamo make off with the proceeds? Did the Sports Authority resolve their most recent bond crisis?
Just for kicks, let’s recall the way former Sports Authority head honcho and current Dynamo prez Oliver Luck USED to talk about a stadium:
And among the first promises [newly named club president Oliver] Luck announced was a most important one that every sports fan should note: A soccer-specific stadium here would not be financed like every other sports mansion on the local landscape.
Financing will not be another tax burden on citizens.
When the pols and the powerful get together, the taxpayers always end up with the burden.
