    The sudden change in plans last year and with no warning, plus everything was so vague, is what pissed me and others off....

    My biggest fear it would be a 30,000 huge white elephant of a stadium at 15th and Agate....but since capacity is slated for 12,500 that is something that can be really useful beyond one meet....

    So yes I'm fine with it now....I've pretty much forgotten all about the old stadium....especially as I've seen detailed plans....so onward....

    Since we (the public) have not been privy to where the 17,000 temporary seats will go for the WC and some other number of temporary seats will go for the OT, maybe you could approach one of the general contractor supervisors on-site and ask that question, ask if he/she could show you blueprints or drawings. If getting that info requires some sort of bribe, I'm sure some of us would chip in a few dollars.

    The workers go to the Wild Duck often...I've talked to them....generally friendly....but don't say much....

    My plan is to ask Vin next time I see him....I doubt he will say much either....

    Maybe they will all go in the Tower....
