The ghost of Johnny Cash
- Aug 5, 2006
I'd just like either naming rights, bond issue or a share issue to come through. We've had what 10 years of playing with one hand tied behind our back. I just want a more level playing field.
As I mentioned before, naming rights will be a very hard sell whilst the stadium is getting negative media coverage (eg. all the delays) and the bond issue won't be sorted until we have a clear picture of the total debt amount and the profitability of the club with the stadium open. These things will not be sorted out for a while so stop using it as a stick to beat Levy with. It's completely unreasonable.
It's healthy to question the board about their actions at times - just don't use things that cannot be solved yet as ammo.
I agree with you about wanting to be on a level playing field. That's what the stadium is long term. It's painful as all hell having to suffer these delays but had we not pursued a new stadium I believe we would have been fighting with an arm behind our backs for years or decades to come.
