Quick discussion post for y'all - completely unrelated to the draft. Hopefully thinking about something other than our second/third round picks will ease your nerves, if only for a moment. Don't dismay, we have plenty of draft-related coverage planned for the evening.

According to a NewsCore report published yesterday, our new stadium could cost nearly one billion dollars. Daaaaaaaamn!

In talks Wednesday with state officials, the team said it was no longer pursuing a new $700 million open-air stadium, instead proposing the construction of a $947.7 million, state-of-the-art stadium.

It'd infuse mucho deniro into the local economy once built. But the process of building a new stadium, along with the public perception of its construction, could mean there is some turbulence ahead.

Personally I'm all for it. The Dome can't live forever. Don't get me wrong, the maroon and sea foam look worked in the 90s. But it's time to move on.

Discuss!
