Ripken had a deal coming together before Mandalay was given exclusive rights.
That deal then shut out all others until such times as the mandalay deal is voted down.
THATs the real problem here - any last minute deal is not to be discussed until Mandalay is voted down.
If this is a new deal (or even it its old) there's no problem saying "NO" in November - as our Mayor said we are getting interest.
No one should rule out a better deal.
But I must admit down town is not my first choice for a location and if Ripkens got different locations than Mandalay has talked about I'm all ears.
If this does include a mall, down town is the LAST place it should be. Not enough people there.....
We shall see.........
