Re: DISCUSSION: Sarpy County/Royals Stadium

The Ricketts family doesn't even own the Iowa Cubs. It would take the Rickett's family bringing the Chicago Cubs to Omaha to make that stadium ever get much use before it decays and they tear it down and build the next stadium that we can't afford and don't need. I watched some of the Villanova gam...

Re: DISCUSSION: Sarpy County/Royals Stadium

Werner Park isn't much of a stadium. I mean its alright but not really. No big surprise to anyone but a few gullible investors that expecting that little stadium to draw much commercial growth to the area is a reach. There isn't much special about our downtown stadium except that its primarily used ...
