What a load of bullshit. Why would we give up a home game?

if the athletic dept needs the money, fine.

but i don't want to hear anything about "branding" or "helping recruiting." it will materially improve neither of those things.

Sigh, I guess I "get" it, but we keep putting so much money into our home stade/Manhattan and here we decide to not use it or give it back to the community. We haven't played 7 home games in like forever, and everything could use the boost after last year. Just, kinda pissed about it.

each gameday is pretty significant for MHK and that much more significant after we lost stampede. I used to remember the number through the chamber but don't anymore.

Yeah, and after last year, especially after last year, those business could use every damn dollar. The more I think about it the more upset I kinda get. We basically traded marginally more national exposure for this game (and really, more like we gotta win now or else who cares) and some money that only the AD gets for a couple mil for local businesses and exposure directly to Manhattan.

We don't even gain extra exposure. Stanford at Kansas State in the first weekend of the season is a prime time matchup regardless of the venue.

Hotel losses for moving the game will eclipse 6 figures.  Between lodging/state/local/development district taxes, that alone will probably cost the city $20k in tax revenue.  The hospitality industry is just killing it right now so NBD

i don't even know that the AD is getting paid to move it but i assume that he is.  if you're the athletic dept, are you worried more about the town or your own bottom line?
the city's businesses needing money isn't gene's fault, every business (of which our AD is one) needs money right now

yeah any way you look at it though it was a significant revenue source and even provided full time jobs for quite a few mhk folks

this is IRL the AD's position (and the answer is 2.5 mil)
