  1. Soccer in Nashville

    https://www.sbnation.com/soccer/2017/12/7/16748288/save-the-crew-columbus-ohio-attorney-general-mike-dewine-browns-law Messy given the fact that Precourt had an escape cause to move the team brokered into the purchase agreement with the Hunt family. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
  2. More Accolades for Nashville

    Have heard that folks at LSU's "Banking School" continue to contend Nashville has a hotel bubble ready to burst.....50,000 foot view....
  3. Beretta hasn't adjusted to the market....there are qualified workers who take better paying jobs with better environmental conditions in the immediate area. What is Beretta's starting pay....$13 or $14 an hour? Similar employers in the area, CIP and others start at $18 and over $20 an hour for those similarly skilled workers. Environmentally, Beretta execs didn't see the need for air conditioning the new facility when moving from Maryland. Beretta hasn't done themselves any favors.

    Mayor Barry didn't attend...the other three Mayors were in attendance. I would presume she was dodging media questions about the law suit. Feeling queasy about the MLS2Nashville bid. Any chance suit is dismissed before MLS decision? Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk

    Per article, appears MLS is steadfast in it's process to award only two franchises in December. In Nashville;'s favor is the December 6 bid presentations...hopefully Cincinnati F C will still have stadium deal issues unresolved.

    I thought the bond issue was contingent for the December announcement. Is Metro supposed to hold out indefinitely? Any insight?

    And if Nashville isn't selected this round, then the stadium deal does not happen. As you say, bird in hand. Crossing fingers for a very Merry Christmas.

    Let's hope for Nashville's MLS franchise award chances this thing stays muddied...Cincy and Nashville are the two cities vying for the second spot to be announced in December. Sacramento has locked up one spot...Cincy FC's fervent fan support is something Nashville SC can't duplicate as of yet without any historical reference....but Nashville's stadium deal has ticked the public/private partnership box cited by MLS as desirable for a franchise awardee. I wish MLS would award both Cincy and Nashville along with Sacramento as all three should be ready to go even if Cincy has to go across the river to Newport.

    Huge name...hopefully MLS is salivating.

    Good information from Sirius FC sports radio talk now from Pat Brennan from Cincinnati Enquirer on FC Cincinnati's MLS bid. In summary, probably not enough time for two bodies of government to pass any public stadium resolution prior to announcment. However, FC Cincinnati has an MOU with property across the river in Newport, KY for its stadium. The MOU has been in hand a while as a safety net, but the pference has always been to be in Cincy...at this point folks there would be willing to be in Newport if it meant an MLS franchise.

  12. Nashville Bits and Pieces

    The who? Rhetorical....get off my lawn....

    My statement read "perhaps." Speculation on my part.
  14. Soccer in Nashville

    Announcement on December 14. Cincy is scheduled to announce its secured financing for a $250 million stadium next week. Worrisome for Nashville's bid is perhaps MLS conceding the Crew's move to Austin and will appease Ohio with a team just down the road in Cincinnati....stinky since Precourt (Crew's owner) was recently sitting on the MLS expansion committee. I hope that Nashville's location, solid ownership and public/private stadium deal, diversity and vibrancy will trump any such leanings. Or perhaps they award a franchise each to Nashville, Cincinnati and Sacramento. It would truly be a shame for MLS to bypass Nashville's meteoric effort to bring MLS to the area after Nashville SC ticked all the boxes. Sent from my SM-G935V using Tapatalk
