Stadium Talks Turn Angry


Recommended Posts

Like Taylor -- I'm with Team ARTE.


Anaheim is not playing fair here.


If they felt the prior offer was not fair to taxpayers (as the Mayor now contends) -- then the City Council should not have passed it and presented it to the Halos.


If the Mayor wanted to veto the Council's actions, he should be allowed to do so and the Council should then be able to over-ride him and move forward.


City of Anaheim has to go to great lengths to 'LOSE" the Angels because the other options out there aren't great -- but the City of Anaheim may just be able to accomplish that.

I'm on Tait's team. The taxpayers shouldn't subsidize billionaires. I hope that they move to a new stadium that Arte says he can pay for.


We will see if you are all gung ho about that when you can't go to the games anymore.  The more I read your posts, the more I think you really don't like this team at all.

The 'development deal' the City has offered the Angels (and now are adding an Appraisal that is designed to increase the costs of the developer (Angels) and minimize any risk to the city) is one that has been offered to others back when there was the availability of a redevelopment agency and increment tax financing -- the project didn't pencil out then and now there's no such financing as the State two years ago eliminated redevelopment agencies and their powers...........so it's not as if this 'development' opportunity is one that has serious investor  developers knocking down the city's door.


Arte agreed to consider tying such a development proposal to the lease extension issue at the City's request........


the city has suggested they'd be better off to level the ballpark and build housing, condos and other retail stuff at the site -- OK -- Angels call their bluff.......


now introducing yet another Halos name change -- The LOS ANGELES ANGELS FORMERLY OF ANAHEIM.
