It actually had FEWER seats than the arena it was replacing- Kemper- which I thought was a perfectly good venue (big deal- it wasn't DOWNTOWN!).
Never mind that less than 10 years earlier- the City of KC-MO spent millions to upgrade the Kemper- only to leave it sit unused and languish after the Sprint was opened.
Now- according to this story in the KANSAS CITY BUSINESS JOURNAL- the city leaders(?) have a asinine proposal to tear down Kemper- yes- that building we still owe more than $10-million on for the 1990's "upgrades-" and build yet ANOTHER white elephant/taxpayer-dollars-hole there.
Let's see- there that $10+-million still owed on Kemper- another $10-mil to knock it down- then ANOTHER $50-million or so to put up another tax-dollar drain.
