I admire Pegula Sports and Entertainment on its reported request that a new stadium be totally funded through public funds. If this is the case than I propose the entire new stadium issue be placed on a special Erie County ballot and if we as taxpayers are paying, we will decide all the details. First and foremost, let’s vote on the location. Either downtown or Orchard Park. Secondly, the capacity. 60,000 or 72,000. Finally, Removable roof or open air.

When will the taxpayers stand up to the threats and demands of billionaire owners? This county has already paid for a dome stadium that was never built.

Let’s agree to a spartan removable roof stadium and let the Pegulas equip the stadium with all the bells and whistles.

Maybe it’s time to drill another well.
