Don't worry..........yunz haven't missed anything yet. As of now I'm viewing a live KDKA feed of empty chairs.

The suspense thickens.

King Sid the Great 87 wrote:As devils advocate: one of the foundations of the new arena is the number of new events that it will be able to house. What about all of the traffic problems that will occur on nights that there is an event when a slots parlor is right next to it?


actually, i think having a slots 'casino' next to the arena would help traffic somewhat..think of the number of people that figure since theyre already there, already paid for parking, that they'll just go waste some time in the casino waiting for traffic to go down after the game. besides, massive traffic delays every single night, and even worse on the weekends, seems alot worse than a few tieups for pens games(41 nights/year), concerts(how many concerts come through in a year? 50 at most?), etc

Delano is a tool of the local Democratic party. I can't believe that KDKA tries to position him as a "political analyst". He worked for the party for years.

wpxi says that onorato and ravenstahl aren't there. for such a huge decision, even if you are not involved in the decision making, why would you not want to be there?

It's just professional. They're job is to see that this city grows, and whether they have a direct tie to the slots or not, it's there for show, as an illustration that they actually care about the city...

When do we start to hear chants of IOC-IOC-IOC!!!!


By the looks of things, we'll be lucky to hear a decision by 10:30.


My guess is that they're deadlocked and they need more fact finding.
