That's all you need to know.

State wants the gate....city wants the parking.

UALR needs about $8,000,000 additional per year to match A-State. That is year to year.

That doesn't count start up costs and such.

Then take away gate revenue and parking revenue out of the mix.

And probanly not able to raise student fees beccuse its already high.

My bet is that they try it anyway.

I can't say that I've seen any groundswell of support for this anywhere except with those desperate to make War Memorial stadium a paying enterprise. I'll wish them luck but I think this study is DOA as far as the public is concerned.

If public opinion is really against it, make it known. Studies always come out as the paying party wants it to. ULAR will be used as the mechanism
to put money in War Memorial. It's all public money since ULAR would probably be heavily subsidized athletically, just follow the money.

Politics, doesn't matter which state, it's all smells. It's why there are so many universities and athletic programs in Louisiana. Cash cows for a few communities that would be Mayberry otherwise. All tax payer supported for the most part.

I'm sure in today's feel good-everyone deserves what they want-society, public opinion would overwlmingly state they would like to see UALR get a football team. But those people won't give a dime, nor care to ever attend a game.

I think the football part of the conference is viable and pretty set now so there is probably no longer a big worry to get uta or ualr to add football and what sports they do bring to the conference have no downside except for making travel a little more complicated. I do think that without the financial drag of football, uta and ualr have no excuse for not putting out really good oly sports.

I've only seen one comment from a UALR fan in this whole thread. I live in LR but I'm not a UALR fan so I am very curious about what the Trojan fans are thinking and hearing. Is there somewhere else that they hang out?
