lol man ive never heard of that freepress writer.
its true tho.. u guys, good luck for sure. trust me, it takes time to get these stadium deals done. i know u guys are all happy and excited and all that but so were we 10 years ago when we released our feasibility study also. IT TOOK 10 YEARS guys for us to finally get a new stadium at a university none the less. U guys are looking to go big, are u looking for federal money? if u are, ur gonna be waiting.. honestly i want your stadium to happen, i wish the feds seriously started giving places like sask and manitoba more money to do things.. big things, they gave us money for our pretty insanely looking human rights museum, seriously architectually its nicer than the regina stadium/convention center/casino/name it proposal there and thats pretty friggin sweet.
feds gave us 15 million for the stadium and that 15 million ISNT EVEN BEING USED FOR THE STADIUM, its being used for upgrades to some of the U of M bison facilities (track fields and the sorts)(gyms,fitness centers,the works) u know what im saying..
so if u want fed money, it wont happen. if u dont.. it will not look like what the original drawing looks like.. maybe similar but scaled back i think considerably, just thats alot of money but i hear rumors that this stadium will be attached to a convention center? or is that a casino? or maybe both? i dunno.. maybe theres more than 1 proposal.
just sayin. want u to get ur new stadium, just also saying.. dont hold your breath cuz u would certainly die waiting for it to happen in the next few months. it probably will happen just not for a while.
10 years guys since our feasability study came out, sure u got ur potash and all that stuff there but... not even potash will build a 50,000 seat stadium in a place that seriously has what? 300,000 people and im probably being generous there.
i hope it does. its beautiful, whichever one that is there with the funky roof that moves from 1 building to the next.. what is that exactly? ITS NICE... ITS SWEEEEEET looking.. id say the reason why it wont happen as is, is because well, places like manitoba and sask... maaan people dont give a crap about us because our votes dont matter. thats why the province and city of wpg is basically building our stadium, sure its a "loan" to david asper but c'mon..... he aiint paying for crap and they are building it starting in may.. like yeah..
hope u guys get it done, its a beautiful building... but which one is it? that u are talking of building? i think i see 2 different designs and im liking that native one better i think. prolly the one that wont happen?
