Social media: ‘Beware of Greeks bearing gifts’
I do not know who is behind the Legion Field twitter account or the new Facebook accounts questioning the new stadium. But they are playing UAB fans, stirring up strife and baiting us into retweets, reposts and responses. The Legion Field account made one comment about a 45K attendance figure and many people assumed it was real and retweeted it without checking the validity. The Facebook account that is stirring the stadium pot—supposedly a UAB fan—is new and looks very suspicious.

It would not surprise me if some of these accounts are being set up just to undermine UAB fans, divide us, and make us look like idiots. Be careful how (or if) you respond, and don’t take anything at face value. And as someone reminded us in a comment on Facebook: “Beware of Greeks bearing gifts.”

Look don't take to much heed to all that nonsense those guys and yes those guys is the last thing they want to see Birmingham have a state of the art Stadium. They will fight tooth and nails until its built then they will shut up and move on you got to build and Build the continuation. You got so called Blazer fans that are like Dungen and Dragon guys they don't care. That's why I really don't listen to them.

When, I say Mark knot speaking of the Ad. the New Construction is standing in his path on a ride. They can dill with it, you can't build if you don't have construction. They a bunch of Marks. You and I know it. They will like it when its built and cleaned up until then they will peo everyday. You can't have it both ways. Probally interrupting their underground life oh well, to say this polite f their underground life. You know how it is.

I didn't know Dollar Tree had sales. That would be pretty lame.

I find it interesting that you chime in on every conversation about the stadium troll.

It's almost as if the criticism of the troll is hitting a little to close to home for him you.

Actually thought of you when I posted that. You are my favorite Greek and you have blessed me with many gifts over the years.

I have no doubt it's a political operation by someone in Birmingham who wants money to flow to Graymont Ave, and I am assured this by the fact that they were so incompetent that they waited to start the campaign until after the groundbreaking for the new one. It has Birmingham machine politics written all over it

The end result is that any changes to the design process at this point would almost assuredly mean the stadium wouldn’t open for the ‘21 season and delaying the stadium while looking for ways to kill it is exactly what you would expect for enemies of UAB football to try.

It's too late to make changes, some idiot in the parking lot of Legion Field doesn't have *that* kind of pull
