I saw they were gonna announce it on the news but I fell asleep.

My Dad said he has another location but I can't find anywhere to confirm this.
Anyone know what's going down?

I recorded a show Thursday night and one of the commercial breaks mentioned they were interviewing Hartman on the news.   Unfortunately I didn't record the news.  Anybody see what that was all about?

City and County have now said no.  Hartman will look to raise private funds for a smaller stadium.

Well its time to get this privately funded stadium built. Hopefully he can break ground as planned.

It's disappointing that the city did not support Hartman's team but it's understandable. Difficult to invest in a soccer team when education is in a bad way right now. Nonetheless, I wonder how much of a "loss" the city has made since trying to woo the NFL (i.e. the Alamodome).

Since no professional team can play in that property (Morgans Wonderland).  Where is Mr. Hartman planning to build the stadium?

That's what I'm wondering DARK. 

And how much smaller will the stadium be?

I belive the stadium could be built across the parking lot from MW.

I read in an article that the stadium is still planned to be above the 5,000 seat mark. Perhaps they mean to reduce the any box seats, balcony, or any other fancy stuff they had in mind.

That actually wouldn't be a bad idea.  Do you know if Hartman plans to meet with the Crocketteers again, sort of like last time at the General Meeting.

I'm not sure you can ever call the Alamodome a loss unless you are strictly referring to not getting an NFL team. Beyond that, it has hosted the Spurs for what....almost a decade? The Alamobowl has turned into a top second tier bowl game. Final Fours and regionals for college basketball for both the women and mens tourneys. Hosting Dallas Cowboys training camp. The All American High School game. And as of this fall, home to UTSA football. All of those things bring in lots of people, and countless dollars to the SA economy.

Not to mention the other events such as Monster Jam, concerts, wine tastings, conventions, etc etc.

People act like it never gets used. I mean, there are lots of NFL stadiums out there that don't get as many events as that. Sure we would have all loved to have an NFL tenant in the Alamodome, and that is a bummer. But I can't imagine the San Antonio landscape without it. We should be thankful for it, not dogging it.

Regarding this Hartman thing....I'm still torn on it. I still feel like the only way I'm ever going to fully support it is if the Spurs plan goes down in flames unexpectedly. And I hear their plan is up for a vote before the end of the month, so my eggs are still all in that basket for now. I continue to have the opinion that two teams is a recipe for disaster.
