    Here are the various sizes of the ECHL arenas https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_ECHL_arenas

    Some people are saying this is a better fit for ice hockey. I understand the empty seat thing with the coliseum used for ice hockey. My only negative to a Henrico Ice Hockey venue is the lack of options around it. Scott's Addition becoming hot I would think helps Baseball (although they still need some venues right up near stadium in my opinion (which I think is what they are going for with the moving of the stadium a few blocks away and then take existing site for a new live/work development). I personally am more excited about the Navy Hill options for before/after games etc. vs. just a drive to a watch game and then drive home situation like in Henrico. Just my personal opinion - both options have their pluses/minuses …. the most important thing is getting a new team back to Richmond (ECHL or above).

    Yea - that $800 million in private equity funds (never to be paid back by the city) pouring into downtown is a total rip off. Your not fooling us you shysters - take your $800 million and find some other sucker that will let you spend it in their city! How dare they want Richmond to fix any of their decade long issues so they can spend a fortune downtown … Dominion you go find someplace else to put your headquarters and employee thousands of people instead of bothering city hall with your highly researched and detailed plans. We know your just trying to profit off of all that electricity Navy Hill will be sucking up at night instead of sitting dark. We know your plans!

    He speaks for their pocketbooks - which hopefully means the new VCU Baseball stadium.

    so use the cities current operating budget to try and revitalize the area vs. relying on future tax base increases? In order to entice development in area no one currently wants to develop. If I were a developer I would focus more on the grace street area south of Broad if I were having to go it alone without something to pull me north.

    What would drive this private development? What would entice them to invest in the coliseum area as it currently stands? That is the problem.

    I felt I was being belittled in fact for being pro-arena. After posting questions on people saying things like "Bye Bye Area plan". That's not a debate that's a "you all are stupid everyone knows it - look at this terrific article … we are so much smarter than you - look you can't even read"

    Must not have been many reporters. So it was a multiple "Protest everything everywhere" march … guess they needed to be very inclusive to get people out. My reading skills are just fine if there is anything to read.
