RSL Stadium and Salt Lake City, County

According to a recent Tribune article, Real Salt Lake has hired real estate brokers to help them find land for the stadium. This is good news for the team and for Salt Lake City. Up until now, the choices have ranged from bad (fairpark) to horrifying (Sandy convention center). Team owner Dave Checketts has been clear from the start that he wants the stadium downtown. Unfortunately, he's been dealt a few bad cards. One is a county government still finding their footing in a very difficult situation. Because of their freshman timidity and fear of upsetting other county political players (Mayor Dolan, Speaker Curtis, etc), the County has not stepped up to back the better downtown plan. The other is Mayor Anderson who, despite being a player in the international environmental and human rights world, can't get a stop light installed in his own city without sticking his foot in his mouth.

Is there room between all the strip malls and clone-like subdivisions in Sandy for a stadium? Keep it downtown where it belongs.

Another cheap shot at Rocky.
And after you acknowledge it's the meddling republican power brokers that cause the problems.
Hey whatever happened to your lackey logan. He was all for trampling rocky. Did finally grow balls and enlist to fight this war he claims to support so much? Cause if not, you might want to direct him to the emerging stories on global warming. Another of his cause celebres that he apparently inherited from his ma and pa redneck.
