    PBS is one of the best stadiums in all of sports, but having the county pay so much for it was just stupid. Mike Brown should be convicted of theft.

    Beddinghaus should be in jail for fraud. Instead he got a nice cushy job with the Bengals. Geez, wonder why?

    Re: NY Times article about Cincinnati stadiums

    Without those stadiums, Cincinnati is essentially Toledo, a AAA town. Cincinnati never ran with the momentum of building the stadiums to get the Banks project built and only have themselves to blame.

    Meanwhile, I wonder how the folks at the NY Times would feel about the NFL, MLB, NBA and NHL pooling all local revenues and then providing the funds for teams to build stadiums themselves in conjunction with revenue sharing so that no team has to ask for public money again. I know it would never happen because the leagues like the flexibility of playing cities off one another. However, its easy for a city with teams that have huge piles of cash to build their own parks to criticize places like Cincinnati for using public funds to build such stadiums without looking at the consequences of not building the stadiums. Not everyone has the luxury of playing in the NYC market. I think Hamilton Co. voters were more concerned about a future without major league sports than they were about how much revenues these places would generate.

    The thing about Cincy's stadiums.. they're plain. Really, really plain. PBS and GABP
    Never been to PBS, but from the outside: white steel, green seats.Blech.
    GABP: Concrete, and even more white steel. I don't mind the red seats, but still. I love the green steel at Atlanta's Turner Field. Wish Cincy would do something at least slightly unique with their stadiums.

    He will when the owners of companies given tax abatements to relocate do. Greed goes both directions. If they didn't think it would benefit them, they wouldn't have done it. Maybe its more like they deserve each other.

    Sounds good.

    In all honestly if the river is 20 miles farther south then I don't think anyone really cares, remember folks northern Kentucky is just as much part of the metro Cincinnati area as Norwood or Anderson township.

    I forget the exact magazine/journal but some architectural magazine ranked PBS as one of only two stadiums to crack the top 100 buildings in the world. The other stadium was the Bird's nest in Beijing.
