Soccer stadium

Any truth to the rumour that the owner of the Whitecaps has large land investments on the downtown east side which are not worth much but would be worth many millions more if a stadium was built down there? Another hmmm.
Couldn't they expand Swanguard Stadium by simply building another seating bleacher OVER the existing parking lot? No more land would be used, the parking lot could still exist, and Swanguard would double it's capacity.
Or, why not play in BC Place? It is already a world class venue.
Or, couldn't they build a great stadium south of Exhibition Park race track right on the waterfront? Bring back that great view that everyone loved from old Empire Stadium? The parking would be already available so it would take no additional land.

    What a great idea the stadium by the race track. Can remember many night watching the Lions, with the beautiful backdrop of the mountains. Sure beats the downtown idea.

    Caterwauls, your ideas are way to logical for these peeps. Don't you know that secret interests always usurp the practical?
