First, why is it that you think the teams couldn't make it at UNCW? Parking is safe, abundant and free. Campus access is pretty good. Both of these factors are better than the alternatively proposed stadium downtown.
Second, UNCW has hosted 4 of the last 6 CAA tournaments with the tournament returning to Wilmington in 2014 for the next 2 years. We don't have trouble attracting and hosting the CAA tournament at Brooks field now, why would we need a $60 million stadium to do so in the future? Answer, we won't.
The Braves aren't guaranteeing us 20 years, their guarantee is 18 months if they pulll out of town.
We are already losing money on a convention center which is due to cost the tax-payers as the Room Occupancy Tax fund gets depleted, CFPUA hasn't met an increase they didn't like, Progress Energy is right behind the CFPUA and next will be the approval of the Insurance commission to raise homeowner's rates 30%. We can control this much; Vote No to the city council's proposal to raise any taxes to fund a baseball stadium.
