But the thing is, where does he get the money for this? Or will it be built by the "private sector" too?A 2020 bid was supposed to have the same stadium proposal, and a half permanent/half temporary Olympic stadium would do nothing for our mayor's NFL aspirations. Not to mention that Rob and Doug's proposed NFL stadium development appears to conflict with the Olympic bid plans for the waterfront.
I believe their NFL ambitions destroyed any chance of a 2020 bid.
If he was smart, he should have done what Atlanta did and simply built the stadium at NFL spec for the olympics. But hes not, and there is no one will to drop 2 billion.
Agreed.^Yup, and that's just what I was getting at. While it's conceivable that a bid could go ahead without the mayor's support, the fact that his interest in sports (and city building) seems to begin and end with the NFL doesn't help.
I wouldn't take what the Fords say at face value.
