So, Dave Checketts, You Want A Stadium? Part 2: Humility
Get on your knees before the politicians. Talking with people at SLC and SLCo, I have heard the exact same comment, "Larry Miller was a lot more accomodating". You should know that pretty much everyone (except maybe the Garff family) wants you to succeed. You should also keep in mind that no one wants to help a demanding, demeaning jerk (ditch Dean Howes). You're running into problems not because you don't have a good idea, or that no one thinks RSL will succeed. It's because RSL is kind of being an ass about this. You're fighting a battle you don't have to fight. Don't tell SLC and SLCo what THEY have to do for YOU, let them tell you what you need to do to get your stadium.
