^^^That's still strange that you don't seem to have that access though. Everyone (at least on the Richmond subforum) seemed to be fine before the link went up to the top bar

Yeah, not sure what the deal is.  Do you get any button or some kind of link that allows you to sign in and/or edit?

Oh wait....I just tried it on my phone and it worked. Because I have to use my fingers it became a mess there for a minute. I hope I didn’t screw something up (yikes!)

I'm not a huge casino fan - but facts are they draw in people looking to spend money and have a good time.  With recent article about Pamunkey tribe looking also to a downtown casino location - wouldn't it make sense for the Casino to be integrated into the new coliseum project or land directly adjacent (is there anything adjacent available on Broad Street).  Seems like the perfect location as far as being a destination location in the city.   They would also be able to help in some of the infrastructure costs and getting the coliseum project jump started with their investors' deep pockets right now.

Destination location / Mass Transit availablilty / intersection of 2 major interstates

Pamunkey Hard Rock - Richmond?  Anyone?

Coliseum / Concerts / Bars / Restaurants / Live Music / Casino - your talking a multi block destination venue that could put Richmond on the map for many major acts and events.  The two projects together can bring a lot of people and their wallets into downtown Richmond and benefit both parties.   *come for a concert - stay for the casino*  *come for the casino - stay for the night life*

I wonder if NH District Group has reached out to the tribe and that is why they are actually exploring that avenue as well now.  Seems the two groups, if they worked together, could make for a well funded mega project downtown.  

And the great thing about all of this - its not the City of Richmond trying to force a venue down the taxpayers throats - this is private investment.   Yes the city should incentivize it - but there isn't much for the naysayers to complain about.

Aren’t they building on land the tribe purchased recently in New Kent?

Not necessarily. That is just ONE of the options. The last article I read in the RTD said that they have another option that is right in the city of Richmond. Not sure where in the city, but it sure makes for fun speculating!

Quote from the article:

"The tribe has already secured more than 600 acres in New Kent County, but Gray says that land is one option of many.  Another would be a more urban casino in the city of Richmond, which the tribe considers part of its homelands.
