- Philadelphia Expansion, Philadelphia Stadium
Anytime someone inside a potential club says the words “we’re not even sure the stadium will even be built” something terrible is close to going down. Something could shake down thanks to Nick Sakiewicz uttering those words to the Delaware County Times.
“I wish we could give you hard commitments today, but we’re not even sure the stadium is going to be built,” Sakiewiecz. “If the markets tank next month, then we won’t build this thing. We’ll be out $15 million and everyone goes home.”
The full story doesn’t sound nearly as bad but still his comments sounded pretty bad here. There are a lot of rumors floating around out there right now about the Philly group and their fianancial status right now.
It makes me wonder, if something does happen to fall through with this group and their expansion plans, would the league pull the plug on them and give a club to a city begging for a club in 2010 (Miami)? Time will tell but hopefully things will get resovled before it gets worse.
Should Philly fans be concerned here? What do you all make of this mess?
