The Dumbass Lounge>Will ‘Mahomes effect’ get The Chiefs a Billion dollar stadium?
Deberg_1990 07:20 PM 09-13-2020
Billion dollar stadiums seem to be all the rage.

Will the Chiefs and Mahomes popularity get the Chiefs to build one of these sweet new palaces?

Or is Kansas City not quite glamorous enough for one?

Done.
This would be a pretty good solution. Its still in a really shitty non-centralized area though. Its crazy to me they have no entertainment district down there. I'm not a huge tailgater though. I much prefer the urban environment at power and light or an outdoor bar with a roof top than drinking Busch Light in the parking lot in the snow or 95 degree heat. Ive always had a great time before and after the B12 tournament down at Power and Light and watched the Super Bowl at Country Road Ice House.

Cards stadium is way out there but there is an entire entertainment district, including Coyotes arena, right next door. Always hopping and great fun being there when the game, or concert, is going on inside.



Dbacks stadium downtown has entertainment all around as well as is even more fun. Heck, you can eat at Fridays in left field. Been there a few times and it's super cool.

I imagine Sprint Center is similar. Crank that to 11.

I like the affordable (pre-covid) prices on tickets, so I would be against the idea of a new stadium.

Arrowhead is a great game day atmosphere. It seats 78k and has a perfect set up for tailgating.

No shit, as a kid I asked my Dad why the bleachers were shaking, he told me everybody was excited!

It always has and will have the perfect NFL tailgating experience.

Problem is, some people just seem to think you can fix perfect!

I believe what you are trying to say is he can spin this shit in anything.

This. And build up public transit to the fucking place. That would be nice.

Unrelated to your comment, but if they do anything because of Mahomes it will be adding more luxury boxes opposite the previous renovations.

No. Keep both Kaufman and Arrowhead next to each other.

Arrowhead is a classic venue like Lambeau or Soldier Field. Leave it be.

Absolutely! It reminds me of Lambeau and Veterans Stadium in Philadelphia combined. That Vegas Stadium? That garbage makes me want to wretch.

I think the rolling roof idea should eventually happen.

The projected cost in 2006 was $170 million.

I am not a Jackson County taxpayer so it's not my $$$ to spend, but that doesn't seem like a bad deal, considering the likely ROI from events such as the Super Bowl, Final Fours, etc. Arrowhead could have hosted with a rolling roof.
