There’s a quote from some long-dead politician who said, “you can have the majority if I get to make the rules.” As long as Cropp stands by her word, the stadium should make it through the Council, again.
But Cropp keeps hedging her statements with cautions that she’d consider moving the stadium to the much-cheaper RFK site. You never know what she’ll spring at the last minute.
While it’s looking like the Stadium is in for rough treatment at the hands of the council, it’s not as if stadium proponents made their own lives any easier by doctoring specific numbers the first time around.
