Easily able to support an NFL team.
    Screw San Marcos... New Braunfels. LOL

    P.S. sorry for the Casey-esque double post.

    I would be down with this setup. I can get to that area a lot faster than downtown San Antonio.

    This has been brought up many times in the past two decades. This would work if the NFL would fully fund a stadium but in the past they only given out loans for a percentage of the cost. Atlanta, Minnesota used government funds, Santa Clara took out a loan from three banks to cover construction costs.

    So between the three locations, which one funds the stadium? Alamodome is out of date and NFL would prefer to have it's own stadium than be second to a college team,

    You're original statement "we have no Triple-A team coming in either" when in fact they are with no guarantees for a new stadium. You stated, it's no longer guaranteed because the "community/city's lack of commitment to build a Triple-A ballpark" and from what was in print in early January, it appears something quietly is in the works behinds the scenes, something Hardberger couldn't do, refusing to keep his mouth shut in courting the Saints.

    In terms of the city's reaction to a new AAA team, or any minor league team, I won't debate that. It's eh. But judging from the Bragg piece, whether citizens "give a shit about minor leagues", attendance is now a secondary concern - "baseball is a means to an end", he wrote. This is an anchor for revitalization.

    Good catch. Sorry. I did leave out the word "guaranteed" in my original post. My bad.

    What ever county the stadium is in, unless they build it literally on the Bexar County / Comal county or on the county line of comal and hays.

    Fresh off the press...

    "The University of North Texas athletic department will soon have a whole lot more to work with financially after the school's students voted in favor of an increase in their fees to support the school's sports programs last week.

    UNT's students voted 1,307 to 1,059 in favor of the proposal that will increase the school's student athletic fee from $10 per semester credit hour to $16.25 while also decreasing a student services fee $2 per credit hour.

    The result is an increase of $4.25 per semester credit hour. A student taking 15 hours of classes will see their fees rise $63.75 per semester and $127.50 per year."

    Their AD, Baker, gave an interview to the university paper explaining the fee increase but this is the second time they had to have a vote for a fee increase. The first one was considered void for some violations. Link

    The more I think about it, it appears UTSA's referendum fell on Eighmy's and Campos lap. Eighmy may have let it go just to see what the attitude of the students were and use it as a starting point.

    "The timeline is to have everything in place is before 2020 when affiliation contracts are up and this will be campaigned as revitalization project. If it fails, San Antonio may be home to single A ball."

    Single A league wouldnt cut it in SA. Long season A is in Cali, Florida or Carolina league. San Antonio wouldn't get short A either. In reality, they would be independent league, which isn't terrible...Stadium has to be built either downtown, near I10/1604 by UTSA (split stadium with UTSA ) or NE San Antonio near Toyota Stadium... Look what Nashville did with their MiLB stadium...Went from bottom of attendance all the way to being 1st in attendance...Love living in San Antonio, but these people here who think its Major League or bust are fucking stupid!!
