I think this aspect has been every bit as good as expected. They just over estimated the tax revenue they'd receive from the surrounding entertainment district in a down economy. If the economy is the problem then the arena should turn a corner over the next five years. If they were simply wrong in their estimates then things will be much more bleak.
I live in Louisville. The only ones worried about this are UK fans looking for a dig at their rival.
