New Stadium Woes

As reported in the Deseret News: Salt Lake County Councilwoman Jenny Wilson wants Real Salt Lake to consider staying at Rice Eccles Stadium permanently to avoid the cost of a new stadium. My cynical side is telling me the real reason for this position is to avoid siding with the politically unpopular Salt Lake City against the newly politically powerful suburban politicians (Curtis, Dolan, etc) who want the stadium either in the suburbs or absolutely free. Of course, free and in the suburbs would be the best for them, but only the parking is free in Salt Lake City's suburbs. When I mention Curtis and Dolan, I should also mention County Councilman Randy Horiuchi. Remember when he (a Democrat) was endorsed for re- election by Sandy Republican Mayor and Wal- Mart afficionado Tom Dolan? That was also not free.

Hmm. I think Jenny Wilson is on to something. Keeping REAl at Rice Eccles solves several problems. One problem is the question of how long REAL will stay profitable in Utah.
The other problem is the silly fight between Sandy, Salt Lake City, and Salt Lake County. It seems to me that politicians in all areas are fighting for a soccer team that no one seems to fully believe will be profitable.
