A frustrated Rockies fan’s dream? Walmart heir makes Dick Monfort $4.65 billion offer he can’t refuse.

Now that both Rob Walton or Stan Kroenke owns most of the sporting activities landscape in Denver, with a number of billion dollars left around, how about permitting us weak paying out shoppers view their groups on television? I’m confident it would not damage the base line, and could possibly even establish some fantastic will.  Whilst the Walmart billionaires are at it, could anyone in the spouse and children buy the Colorado Rockies and switch them into a aggressive baseball franchise?

Lee, repping the 303

Kiz: Nicely, glimpse on the vibrant aspect. We all may have a new Broncos stadium with a retractable roof to take pleasure in right before Colorado little ones who have under no circumstances observed Nikola Jokic play on Altitude achieve authorized ingesting age. The moment upon a time, Mr. Kroenke did investigate purchasing the Rockies. Dick and Charlie Monfort weren’t interested. Hmm, helps make me surprise. Imagine if an heir to the Walmart fortune supplied $4.65 billion for a broken-down baseball group, the up coming generation of Monforts could reconsider?

If the Waltons get the job done with Kroenke, they could direct a downtown revitalization that will condition Denver for the foreseeable upcoming. Issues have to have a positive will to meet up with, not divisive negatives.

P.W., soothsayer

Kiz: I journey a whole lot. My practical experience is the pandemic took toll on the vibrancy of a lot of towns. Recovery ain’t quick. I catch grief for not getting a supporter of Denver sports groups. That is awesome. But I like Denver, are living in Denver and have religion it is on the rebound.

Gotta disagree with your thought “We all win” with a Walmart household shopping for the Broncos. With the new ownership by billionaires, ticket charges are probably to soar, so only millionaires will fill the stadium. Go the Pinot Noir, gruyere and caviar, s’il vous plait. And, BTW, cease that infernal yelling and screaming. Polite golfing applause only!

Joe, six-pack in cooler

Kiz: All snark apart, you might be on the upcoming large thing: boutique stadiums. Advancements in technologies are going to make the expertise of observing a soccer activity from property substantially a lot more like staying in the huddle, with out the problem of dealing with site visitors. Quicker or afterwards, an enterprising sports franchise will create a stadium with no additional than 20,000 seats that has facilities to rival the poshest club and yummiest cafe in city. It will cost a ridiculous quantity of funds to go to a video game in-particular person, with the attractive men and women like Ciara and dot-com business owners front and heart in the group.

Kiz, if the Walton loved ones forces taxpayers to subsidize a new stadium, can we merge it with Elitch Gardens and call the entire matter Wal-E World?
