Wouldn't it be more accurate

Wouldn't it be more accurate to report it as a tax-payer funded stadium was shot down by voters. I don't think the opposition was to baseball, just who should be taking any or all of the risk associated with moving the team here.

The voters had their say. Mandalay/ANLBC could have crafted the deal differently or proceeded anyway with their own money and you wouldn't have heard a complaint. Except maybe about parking or traffic which always an issue with downtown events.

I see this is Lynchburg's reporting but still it's an inaccurate representation of what 70% of voters truly objected to.
