Yeah but that's a lifeline to cordish, and it comes at the expense of the actual good stuff already happening in the crossroads, while also not throwing a much needed lifeline to a place where buildings were already razed specifically to make way for a baseball stadium (east village).

Cordish is fine, the city subsidizes.  And it can stop now which will be a good thing.  City should plow the saved money into east village projects

the royals plan to swing at every pitch thrown by the opposing pitcher regardless of where it is thrown is going to take me some time to get used to.
Worked in 14 and 15 :dunno:

Did our bullpen suck fat turds in 14 and 15?

After doing absolutely no research, I'm guessing this thing passes 54-46.

Was "yes" to keep the stadiums where they are, or was "yes" to move them to downtown?

That makes more sense. I was confused why Mahomes was on a commercial saying "vote yes to keep the Chiefs at Arrowhead" when everyone on Twitter was saying voting "yes" would move the Royals downtown.

They aren't leaving the KC Metro. I bet they end up downtown anyway but they pay for it themselves. If not that they'll let Laura Kelly give them a fistful of cash.

The margin was pretty disturbing if we want to keep them.  A new location/better message may not cure that.

i’m glad it failed if for no other reason than how bad that the chiefs proposal was. they should be embarrassed by their proposal.

anyway, i’d like to see subsequent discussions whereby the two teams are disconnected from each other.  the royals are going to take another swing at this next year and if they spend just a few minutes on it, instead of the zero minutes that was spent this go round, i’m sure it will pass.  but i’ll reiterate, they did themselves no favors attaching themselves to the 10 ton anchor that was the Chiefs’ dogshit ideas. 

inept laziness asking for a cool half billion with the lack of real effort going into this ask of kc.

There's some truth here - especially the bit about both teams just assuming they could trot out a pile of dog crap and it would pass - but I actually think if the Royals had gone with the East Village site that this is exactly what would have happened and it would have passed.

When the Royals turned their sights on the Crossroads - and the very engaged community that lives/works/plays there - they unleashed fury/anger about billionaire entitlement, etc. The East Village site would have had none of that element - if for no other reason than the Royals/city have been buying up property in that area for years. It also had the benefit of being able to say "urban redevelopment" because the space was largely devoid of anything whereas it was the complete opposite scenario in the Crossroads.

The effort from both teams was so poor that it ALMOST (but doesn't) makes me wonder if this was the desired outcome because it now gives them a pass to do whatever they want... "We TRIED to stay in Jackson County, but the voters said no. Now, we need to move to (insert: Kansas, Northland, etc.) because they actually want us."

I honestly thought it would pass. I would have voted no. They either wanted this to fail for some weird reason or they are really shitting about how bad they got their asses kicked. A loss that big has to tell them that they either need to pay for more themselves or find a different spot. If the Royals put together a decent plan for east village, I bet they can get it to pass. They may have to ask for less money next time though now that they screwed this up so bad. I'm not sure what the hell the Chiefs are doing. They basically said we aren't really going to do anything different accept maybe put up a few tents in the parking lot, but still want your money. The reality is that the Chiefs would have gotten it even with their bullshit plan if the Royals hadn't screwed it up so bad.
