It is my understanding that Katy High School threatened to move to Sugarland, TX if a new stadium wasn't built.

Creoena: $69 million football stadium?  For high school?  How about, you know, using it on educating kids?

Just a thought.


Let me explain it to you, libtard. Its a JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! program. See, you combine spending millions on sports programs instead of education programs, with textbooks that promote creation science and gloss over unpleasantries like slavery. Then you sit back, confident in the knowledge that you've prepared your students for lifetime careers in the food service industry or the janitorial arts. And there are a lot of those jobs! How many rocket scientists do you see every day, libtard boy?! How many brain surgeons? None, right? Now, how many happy smiling folks do you see at the drive-up window? THAT'S where the JOBS! JOBS! JOBS! are, you moran.

Sounds like SOCIALISMS to me. Real texans would let the free market build that stadium all on its own.

1) if you don't live in Texas or have ever lived in Texas, you literally have no idea what High School Football means to their communities. I used to live in Western PA before living here and I thought fans were rabid out there; they've got nothing on Texas.

1a) football is not bad

2) the expansion is necessary not only to accommodate the 8th (and potentially more) high schools in the district, but to accommodate other things that will make money for the district.

2a) the benefit goes beyond football to band, CG, etc.

3) $99 MM really isn't that much money for a bond in a district the size of KISD and it's not for one school or one purpose. There's already a technology center (read -- Vo-Tech and a kick-ass culinary program), and the STEM center will add to the ability of the district to focus education for the kids. And for the AG center, we need it -- our rodeo arena, like our football stadium, is too small.

4) I'll vote for it -- it's a benefit for all the kids and I'm not afraid to pay for it.

4a) If you don't like it, move here and vote against it.

Educating kids? There isn't enough money in the budget for that.

You need a parking lot, a grass of turf field, bleachers to hold 15k, lights, media center, and changing rooms. You could do all that for considerably less. In England Colchester United built a stadium holding 10k, with expansion room to double, for barely $20 million. They had to figure in land costs in a built up area, too. This whole venture proposed in Katy sounds like a kickback boondoggle, it'll end up with several contractors, school officials, local politicians, all being able to splash out on Olympic sized swimming pools and new tits for both the wife and mistress.

Don't worry, I'm assured that expensive sports facilities always pay back more into the schools than they cost.  Once its built, all the money that boosters, sponsors, spectators pour into the facility, it will pay for itself in like a season. And if that fails, paying back loans is a good way to make sure that the discipline and teamwork that can only really be taught with organized sports is still alive in the community.

I wonder if the guy who said the debt can be managed also complains about Obama spending too much.
