So it's no loss either way. Or, more appropriately, a loss either way.
If the Bucks stay, any jock tax their presence generates goes to the stadium, not state coffers.
If the Bucks leave, there's no need for a stadium.

But the reality is, this is money currently going into the general fund. Under either scenario, that money will be disappearing and either needs to be replaced or spending will have to be correspondingly reduced.

Again, as an Illinois resident, I don't really care who pays for the stadium, and I want it built. But it would be wrong to suggest there's no impact on the taxpayers here. The truth is, taxpayers - directly and indirectly - are paying for half of it.

I'm sorry, but I have to call you out on this.  If the Bucks leave, that's $6.5m of taxes that the state will no longer receive, it's not as simple as "there's no need for a stadium."  On top of that, if they leave and a new stadium is not built, the state (I believe ... this has been talked about at length) is on the hook for something like $100m over the next 10 years to keep the BC running.

I have to respectfully disagree with the Colonel and the Glows on this issue. I am usually inclined to defer to tradition but as others have mentioned I love the new tradition that includes the new players learning the history and tradition of their number. How about we have an hour long special, pre-midnight madness special in which players get to meet their former jersey wearers... cut right to the dunk contest. Another possibility is that a player has to earn his jersey(I don't know how we will determine that) maybe Senior year Haniff gets #24. No disrespect intended to all those who have gone before but I hope we are in for era that if we don't figure out something  we will run out of numbers. Ring Out Ahoya!

I love those traditions as well and have said that I could support a retired jersey policy.  We can debate whether a higher level retired number category should also exist.  If so, GT is candidate#1.

Left out of the Beer Summit story above was that Chicos had invited his imaginary internet friend, who he had never met, over to his house to share said beer, replete with free Disney tickets and complimentary, shared internet access.

I'm surprised you weren't aware of this - what with the non-stop Faux News coverage and all. Roll Eyes

Rocket, I'm just tired of people saying one thing and living life a completely different way (no matter what their political views may be). I'm guessing we probably agree on that.

that's a gig yes sir-that duggar thing?  i see a lot about it,  but don't know one thing about them.  i think they are a big family or something, but i don't get all the attention.  are they supposed to be the modern day "my three sons" or ozzie and harriets, leave it to beavers etc.  if so, ya just knew something like this was coming.  ok, let 'em fly-gee ward, don't ya think you were a little hard on the beaver-had to get that one in Grin

Interesting to see the vote totals, with a 20% edge to the far/right. 

I do know .. many on the left will not read or post on the politics board, so seeing the poll totals tilted right doesn't surprise me.

Interesting, Hilltopper. Shows how we are prisoners of our own conceptions.

I would have guessed there would be more leaning left - especially over the last year or two. Before that, I thought the board leaned right.

"I believe government is supposed to do something. I think libertarianism is an 8-year old's political philosophy: 'You're not the boss of me.' I think that government is a pain in the (expletive), but adults need to participate in it. I try to. I try to be informed. I don't mind paying taxes."

The 6 months before the trip I continually asked her if the tour was on the back of a Sherman tank.

Frankly, I would have opted for a P 47. The Jug is a much better ride!
