Least Surprising Announcement of the Day: Liverpool FC Not Going With HKS's Stadium
|HKS still has this as "on the boards." And it appears that's where the once-upon-a-time Liverpool FC stadium will stay.|
And while the new ownership, Fenway Sports Group, also hasn't delivered on a new stadium -- John Henry's said to evaluating a £150-million sponsorship deal, not to mention trying to decide where to build -- one thing's for sure as of today: "The futuristic HKS stadium plans, with an estimated cost of £400 million ... have now been consigned to the waste bin." Shocking.
But that reminds me: Whatever happened to Hicks's long-promised lawsuit over that "epic swindle"? Last I heard Hicks and his legal team were going to England to consider the next move, but that was a while back. I've made some calls. I'll update if there's anything to report.
