Mad at the world for their own shortcomings.  It wasn't always like that in Baton Rouge.  :brickwall:
My cousin and i were just saying this. It's just plum crazy right now.

It's definitely a day by day situation with them being in Lynchburg, VA.  I've recently passed by that school and have noticed very little activity.  Maybe Lynchburg's News and Advance could provide some information.


The response will be something like...'WHO?' :shrug:

Has anybody here on the board EVER visited the campus for a game? football? basketball? jacks?


 :no:

Yes, I've been to their campus. My wife's cousin used to go there and the campus is very, very small and the buildings are old. They are in desperate need of funds. They play their games at a local high school stadium and the campus is right down the street from Liberty University....like night and day.
Hell maybe we should just send them the check and schedule somebody else. Seriously.

This just tore my soul apart so much. I couldn't post it when it first happen. This courageous activist/historian was extremely close to my family and was very instrumental in inspiring me and thousands of men like me to be great. To say she was a pillar of the community doesn't do her justice. Today we can say that an arrest was made swiftly.  I would implore those of you who read this article to research and learn for yourself. The impact Ms.Sadie Roberts-Joseph had on our city

BATON ROUGE, La. (WAFB) - An arrest has been made in the killing of Sadie Roberts-Joseph, a Baton Rouge icon who founded an African American history museum, according to officials during a press conference on Tuesday.

They look at replacing the roof without the retractable roof section versus replacing the roof with the retractable roof section. 

Renovated roof without retractable roof section - $394 million

Renovated roof with retractable roof section - $860 million, which was $88 million less than a new stadium.

It's not rocket science to see that the impact of that tornado in 2008 was a major determining factor for replacing the Georgia Dome. 

The big difference in the Georgia Dome versus the Superdome, the Superdome's roof would need way more than 150 miles per hour wind force to make its super-structure (structural steel) move, which is why the $450 million that is being spent to renovate it is way more feasible than building an entire new stadium that's upward of like $1.2 billion.

:tup: That answers a lot of questions I had about building a new dome in NOLA vs renovations

Most, if not all decisions are made based on what is more feasible.  The Superdome was a well engineered facility that has benefitted the State and New Orleans 100 times over. Once they remove the ramps and replace them with escalators and elevators, the Superdome should have more seating capacity, unless they decide to use the additional area for the additional suites that they are proposing.  Supposedly, they are also looking to install window glass exterior to some parts of the Superdome so that the fans can view downtown New Orleans/Central Business District (CBD) while attending a game or event.  This should make the Superdome a competitive venue for the next 50 years, whereas in Georgia, the last bond payment for the Georgia Dome was being made at the same time when the demolition of it started.  IMO, that was a complete waste of taxpayers monies.  Luckily, Georgia has a much better economy than Louisiana to absorb the wasted cost.

Why do some people insist on saying that 2008 tornado that hit downtown Atlanta had nothing to with as a determining factor for replacing the Georgia Dome when there is clear proof in the feasibility study that done to renovate with an entire new roof the Georgia Dome versus the building a new stadium???  The report doesn't have to say tornado for one to see that the cable roof of the Georgia Dome was a major items of concern.  When the cantilever columns that supported the cable roof started to sway 3 to 4 feet in each direction, it was definitely one of those 'oh sh!t' moments in the Georgia Dome.  Plain and simple, structural supported roof section are not supposed to sway 3 to 4 feet in each direction. That's way to much stress and strain on steel columns.

Feasibility Study:

Clear evidence that some us don't like to read reports that concerns the future development of our cities and states.  Also, the report was completed in 2010, which means they had to have started looking at this two years ago in 2008.
Wow!

:nono2: And those billionaires and millionaires ain't giving back one dime of that tax cut money to bale them out.

I wouldn't let these GOPers manage a pig bank for me. :no:

And it is going to take a Democratic president to fix the problem. Conservatives my arse.

History Just Keeps Repeating Itself, Because Americans Are Sheeple...

From 1960 until the present time, there's a recognizable pattern as it relates to Federal Deficits, under a GOP vs DEM White House Leadership...

If Stephen Bloch is some Republican bean counter or something. This is worth about as much as the Evernote it was posted on. We all know republicans skew their numbers to fit their narrative. Example; they regularly use the military in its job growth reports. I'm betting a dime to a dollar that this Mnuchin report is just a ruse to allow them to steal more of our money.

Wow! The Fiscally CONservative strikes again.

(CNN) - Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Friday issued a warning Friday that the US government is at risk of running out of cash sooner than expected.

Chris Paul hasn't been the same high octane point guard ever since he left New Orleans.  Now he is with a team that's in a city that has the New Orleans Pelicans and Katrina to thank for the NBA looking their way.  IMO, his career would have been better off if he didn't try to seek the glit and glamor of Los Angeles.  Oklahoma City is definitely a far cry from L.A.
He's still a walking 16 6 9.  He's just aging that's all. But David Stern really stuck it to him. Right now he and LeBron should have been on the same team.
