Duke

Notice your first sentence?
"We just want baseball,via city,county,city and county combined."

You ONLY added "private" as an afterthought and immediately dismissed it saying you "had a hard time believing Ripken will build this....."

That's the exact problem here Duke.
If Private funds (outside of Mandalay/Atlanta) amount to $1M or all of it that takes the pressure off of us.
Mandalay went from:
"no cost to taxpayers"
to
"Some cost to taxpayers'
to
"No private investors at all"

The Mayor went from
"Oh that's great"
to
"Those numbers are way too high and Madalanta's got to put more skin in the game"
To:
"that's a number I can't support"
to:
"We capped it at $37M"

If this proposed deal forces them to seek out other private investors? Everyone wins.
As it should be.
Saffo et al, were way too easy on Mandalanta
