Response to Just glad it's done!
there's a south jersey politician who wants to nix the deal because it doesn't benefit south jersey (probably a philthydelphia cryers fan) They'll probably just give him some extra budget $ for Rowan College to shut him up, but how F-ng rediculous are these state senators and congressmen. Everyone of them always has their hand out looking for a piece of the pie.
Anyway, from what I read they lock up the Dev's and Nets for 30 years, and judging by the change in the downtown area over the past 10-12 years, this arena will be just what they need to get over the top. New Arena, NJ Performing Arts Center, Newark Bears Baseball Stadium, SHU law school, All they need to do is some road upgrades to 21 and 280, clean up Penn a bit & put a walkway direct from Penn to the new bldg - I heard Shaquile Oneill has bought up a bunch of property in the area too.
- yeah, but since YANKEES/NETS are willing.... - Soulchaser on Jun 7, 2001, 11:45 AM
