  1. Kaiserslautern in Germany's Bundesliga already owns that. And a badass logo it is.
  2. This is fake news (which is not surprising, given your questionable source). It wouldn't surprise me at all if someone just fell for a canary trap: McMaster: "The Story That Came Out Tonight As Reported Is False" http://www.realclearpolitics.com/video/2017/05/15/mcmaster_the_story_that_came_out_tonight_as_reported_is_false.html I was in the room. It didn't happen. I rarely rarely post here but I've been following this thread and have to respond to your continued and complete nonsense in defense of this disaster of a president. It's almost like you hope Trump is reading this thread and you're auditioning in front of him to join buffoons like Kellyann Conway and Jeffrey Lord as a surrogate. This WaPo story has now been independently confirmed by the New York Times, Reuters, CNN, Buzzfeed and the Wall Street Journal. For you to dismiss it as fake is absurd, sad, ignorant and plays right into the now-comical charicature of a blind Trump supporter who will literally twist themselves into pretzels trying to defend the hopelessly indefensible. Thankfully, so few think like you.
  3. I live in Centerville (10 miles south of Dayton) and ColDayMan's analysis is far from accurate. There is little to no Crew presense in the Dayton market. When the Crew played in the championship game last year, I had to specifically request the match at a Kettering sports bar - 20 min. after kickoff. Forget about a regular season Crew game getting any attention here. The local TV sports show no Crew highlights. While the FCC friendly vs. Palace got highlights and DDN coverage. Dayton is far, far more linked to Cincinnati than Columbus and that extends to FCC. I saw FCC shirts in Centerville on match days hours before kickoff. The Rally House at the Dayton Mall carries FCC gear. Not to mention, most of the hotbeds of soccer in the Miami Valley, namely Centerville, Springboro, Bellbrook and Miamisburg, are all well south of Dayton and, in Springboro's case, already considered part of the Cincy metro. We're already used to driving the quick 40 minutes to Cincy for the Reds, Bengals, the zoo, the airport and plenty of other things in the city on a routine basis. Driving to north of Columbus is just not a regular thing. If/when FCC joins MLS, Dayton (which should officially be linked to Cincy by the 2020 federal census) will be there. Zero doubt.
  4. President John Cranley? I think we have the official proof that Chris Smitherman is certifiably insane.
  5. Yea, it does seem a little bit like this whole thing was orchestrated to keep a grocery store OUT of this development. Kroger does seem to be interested, at least somewhat, in a downtown Cincinnati grocery store. Could this whole debacle be on Kroger's behalf? http://www.wcpo.com/money/local-business-news/kroger-co-kr-harris-teeter-acquisition-could-lead-to-new-downtown-cincinnati-store
  6. Screw the sleezy GOP ... Pearl Jam is coming to the arena in October! But seriously, this city is long past due for a legitimate arena. US Bank is a garage compared to the new facilities in Louisville, Indy, Cbus, Denver, Dallas, etc. It would be nice for it to come with a new NHL/NBA team, but Kansas City built a state-of-the-art facility without a major sports tennant. And now that they have it, they're always on the short list of relocation possibilities for the NHL. If KC (or Cleveland, Pittsburgh and St. Louis for that matter), which already has MLB, NFL, MLS and major college sports nearby, can support a NBA or NHL team, why couldn't Cincinnati?
  7. ^ Disappointing. Not that any garage looks nice, but that one is beyond hideous.
  8. I didn't think Cranley could continue to get worse in his role as a miserable excuse for a big-city mayor and I'm proven wrong. Again. What a joke he's become. A modern charicature of the old "Boss" mayors of the past. It's so sad that this city is singularly held back by a complete moron like John Cranley.
  9. I'm still more bothered by the traffic lights dangling from ordinary wires throughout the Banks, as opposed to the fixed post traffic lights throughout the rest of downtown. It looks unbelievably tacky, particularly at the Freedom Way/Main Street intersection directly in front of Holy Grail and the ballpark. Traffic lights swinging from wires don't belong downtown.
  10. At the very least, a couple of thousand new people moving to the Tri-state means more potential ticket buyers.
  11. Looks like the Cincinnati area is in line for 1.000-2,000 new corporate GE jobs ... and The Banks is a possible landing spot, as is Oakley. What a grand slam this would be for The Banks, the rest of downtown and all of the city/region.. http://www.cincinnati.com/story/news/2014/04/09/ge-project-bring-jobs/7518947/
  12. And Dayton didn't play their best. Had they, they're in the Final Four. Great job Flyers! Definitely back!
  13. You guys crack me up somtimes. Would you take a fighter jet from The Banks to Music Hall? Velocity is just one factor in the equation. Transit doesn't have to be faster to be competitive with other modes, but it helps. "People drive to save time." I don't - I drive because its the only realistic option for getting somewhere around Cincinnati-Dayton. When I'm in Washington DC, NYC or even Denver, I don't drive. Just the thought is laughable. I'll take the rail transit 100 times out of 100.
  14. The streetcar was a Republican idea to begin with. It only became a "Democrat" issue after Chris Bortz turned on his own project in 2011, meaning it fell in Mallory's lap. There was stuff going on back around 2006-07 that seems impossible now, like both Ghiz & Cranley voting for the streetcar while dating. Oh, and I heard that JUDGE Ghiz was going to be pressured to recuse herself had the pro-streetcar charter amendment been placed on the spring 2014 ballot because of her past streetcar votes while serving on council and for having dated now-mayor Cranley. Whoa...Cranley and Ghiz dated?!? Eww ... Gross. TMI
