Why don't we just put up a stadium on the waterfront?



Maybe the Buffalo Common Council had it right in investigating putting up a retractable-domed stadium (like Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis above) on the waterfront to house the Buffalo Bills and more! I remember back in the 70's when the proposal to put up a domed stadium in Lancaster was all the rage...it would have been the 2nd domed stadium in the USA (after the Houston Astrodome) and I remember well the late-great sportscaster Stan Barron telling me we could have been awarded a National League Baseball team and MLB would have never expanded to Montreal (Expos). It could have been paid for by just charging a nominal fee to curiosity seekers wanting a "tour" of the facility in just 3 years...but we all know by now how everything turned out (and we ended up paying for the Lancaster Stadium after all the lawsuits ANYWAY). If we are going to pay million$ to update The Ralph, we should think about paying a few more million$ to put up a new stadium downtown...that should solve the problem of getting people to come downtown to the waterfront!
