Says he hopes to have a profitable, winning team
I am so happy to finally get what I want. boo-hoo... havn't you heard? nothing
you can do to stop the stadium now!Take that!
Heros is spelled Heroes......unless you meant the sandwich.
>>What else is there going on after the jazz go out for the summer. Nothing. RSL
is the best option by far to get through the slow summer sports months.>> Uh, I live here for the activity options. I am not going to sit on my
butt and watch sports. I am going to go outside and PLAY them. Spectator sports are for inactive fatties who live vicariously through made up
Shenanigans defined: local residents duped into believing the area can support
a pro soccer franchise and a multimillion dollar stadium during a sagging
economy. Good thing Checketts built this thing in Sandy instead of Utah County,
because he'll need to sell a lot of beer on Sundays to keep this white elephant
afloat. And did I miss something...when did David Archuleta become a soccer
player? Brilliant first move, Manning.
RE: MEBI was going to counter each of your complaints with facts and
logic, but decided not to waste my time; it is an exercise in futility to argue
with somebody whose arguments are not based in logic. Inform yourself.
Stop hiding your head in the sand of your ignorance and you might see the world
as it really is.Go RSL!
RE: MEBYou are SOOOO Wrong. Larry H did take a lot more money
compared to Real if you account inflation. Real also got a lot lower percentage
in tax money than all of the new recent MLS stadiums. For instance Toronto's
taxes funded 100% of their stadium! I dont see people protesting there about
their taxes. Oh-by the way-that city is standing behind their team and are
selling out every game with a capacity of 20,000. So quit complaining about
"your tax dollars". They were hotel taxes anyway so unless you vacation in SLC
your money isnt funding REAL. Check your facts before you start bashing RSL.
If so many taxpayers didn't want the stadium why did practically noone support
your petition to put the issue on the ballot? Reason: Most people actually
like the idea of a pro soccer team in Utah. Also, most Utahns are smart enough
to see their taxes are not really paying for the project. Cry all you want but
Utahns can see the deal for what it really is not what the soccer haters want it
to be.Twenty years from now you can sit at an RSL game eating a
hotdog with your grandkids in the beautiful stadium. You can tell them again
how unfair this all is. Their response will be: "Shut up grandpa I'm trying to
watch the game!"
...Real Salt Lake, call us RSL if you wish to shorten our name, but we aren't
the royals.Checketts wife?...huh...what does she have to do with
this?How can anyone say something will NEVER happen? How does
anyone know? I say I GUARANTEE it will happen, does that change anything....um,
no.Thanks for your support. See you on Saturday.
@ Re: Anonymous - Because you stole public money and forced the taxpayers to
fund 'your' sport. That's wrong in every sense of the word. Not only that, but
when the taxpayers came out in droves and said that they didn't want to do it,
the Governor stepped in and 'made it so'. What an irresponsible use of public
funds.And don't come back and tell me that Larry Miller did the same
thing. He was given a minimal amount of taxpayer dollars in comparison, and his
has paid back the benefit to the public more than 100 fold. That will NEVER
happen with Real. The public got taken and even the current Real President can
Why do you waste your time make such pointless comments? If you don't like what
RSL has to bring to the table then ignore it, there are MANY sports I don't like
but I don't waste my time commenting such uneducated comments about it.. to each
The surest way to get past the controversy is to give up the stuipid ReAl brand
and create one unique to SLC. Why is Chekcetts so insistant on us beig the
Royals? Oh, yeah its because his wife thought it was a good idea. Maybe he
shouldn't listen to his wife.
Seriously, if you are interested in being bored and don't want entertainment
options... move to the states that anonymous mentioned. What else is there
going on after the jazz go out for the summer. Nothing. RSL is the best option
by far to get through the slow summer sports months. Bees is an okay second
option, but I much prefer major league teams. I am happy about RSL
and their beautiful stadium being in Utah.
By the way the stadium looks great.The back drop with the snow caped mountains
and with the 20 plus K fans filling up the stadium will be awesome.
Why don't you take your lousy sense of humor and move on out of the state. You
might like Albequerque, Wyoming, or Billings Montana. They are some of the very
few places where there aren't sports franchises without a public/private
partnership. Oh, I forgot the Dakota's...
Wants to move past the funding controversy? Why doesn't he just take it a step
further and move on out of the state (and take his lousy team with him).
I was hoping more along the lines of David Villa, but ya, ok, I'm sure Archuleta
could net a couple of goals for us next year. Is he a generation Adidas player?
....most of the controversy was just uniformed, or uneducated opinions.Can't wait to hit Blanco with some of your secret sauce.
We will continue to hold it against RSL, Sandy, and Salt Lake County.
