Let's see. It takes under $5 million to start football, golf and soccer, but it takes $25-30 million to build a small-to-medium sized Events Center. Seems to me the Arena presents a fund-raising challenge several orders of magnitude more difficult than Athletics Expansion. Am I missing something here, or does the whole world have discalcula?

It is also relevant to note that the same people who are willing to support fundraising for football, soccer and golf may not be all that hot about the arena, and vice-versa. Sadly, this whole discussion further reveals the lack of unity among members of the Maverick Nation. And the need for greater unity was one of the reasons to have athletics in the first place.
