Calgary is mulling over renovating arena...

i got a weird feeling that ken king, in his back of mind, might move the flames to KC or houston if local and provinical levels won't fund a new arena...

and also if the flames pay for it themselves....the debt will be too much....so they won't go for this option..

Chief among reasons for a new or upgraded arena are enhanced revenue streams, since King and the Flames believe generating profit is severely limited playing out of the Saddledome.

to keep the flames in calgary, the city oughtta put a referendum on the ballot to fund flames a new arena by tax revenues from hotel and rental car fees....no taxes will be raised thru income....so all of you hating taxes it will not come out of your paycheck....

this is how KC arena was funded....thru hotel and rental car fees...


Editor’s note: Mayor Kay Barnes’ downtown revitalization plan was strengthened with plans for a new arena, to be called the Sprint Center. Kemper Arena, although it had been renovated to add seating, was among the oldest in the country. Voters in August 2004 approved an increase in hotel and car-rental fees to fund the project, and the groundbreaking ceremony would be held June 24, 2005.

I am going to close this thread because your suggestion of team moving is ridiculous.

If anyone wants to start a new thread discussing a new Flames Arena, feel free.
