Stadium Legal Problems
Today's Tribune includes an article by Derek Jensen that outlines a potential legal problem for the proposed Sandy soccer stadium that results from the fast and loose backroom way the stadium was arranged. Naturally, Speaker Curtis and Mayor Dolan have downplayed the problem. There is clearly a long way to go before a stadium is built. The Sandy site has been very controversial among the general public, the political leadership, and the press. There is a sort of contingency plan hiding in the back of RSL executives' minds that remains unexpressed to the general public. It may be possible for RSL to build only practice fields at the site in Sandy and a stadium in another, better location. Perhaps even downtown, the first choice location of the Checketts family.
