  1. What would be the plight of the workers if they weren't working at WalMart? Would they be using even more public assistance? Could it be that they woek at WalMart because it's the best job they can find? If WalMart paid higher wages and more benefits, would the workers attracted be of a higher caliber, thus leaving the current employees back on the dole?

  2. Uh oh, some of the images aren't loading properly in my browser. That's breaking an implicit social contract between Trey White and his investors and the public. It's clearly the end of the line for this misanthropic adventure. He'd better watch his back, cuz mom's gonna wag her finger at him quite vigorously. He will be so very ashamed.

  3. This Tysons Corner Walmart reminded me of this thread. Maybe if Walmart adds a fitness center on top, everything will be OK.

  5. I'm talking about amenities...AAC has more to offer behind the scenes than Toyota.... As for Reliant....bland...if you don't put 40,000 in there the game is dead. The Dome in its glory days had mystique.

  6. It'll still be better than Reliant...I've been all over Reliant from floor 1 to floor 7 and up and down the Texans' offices...nothing stands out and I'm not the only person who has said that. In high school, you looked forward to going and playing in the dome, you can't even get into reliant as a high school team unless it's a special occassion. I've been all over the Superdome also....I like the mystique about it...hate the upper deck but something about it is cool...

  7. Take the roof away from Reliant and what do you have? It's a bland stadium

  8. Typical Houston conservatism...Reliant and Toyota Center are very bland and nothing like our Dallas counterparts when it comes to the AA Arena or Cowboy Stadium. Looks like more effort was put into Minute Maid. We'll see about the Dynamo The Texans gameday atmosphere is pretty boring also

  9. Exactly, this city can barely support the Aeros, and they make it to the playoffs and still nobody turns out. I have gone to a few games, I love Aeros hockey, but I am not a hockey fan.

  10. If you think the City's 100+ page infrastructure design manual does not apply to private developers, that is your problem. It does. It is your burden to prove that it does not. I am not responsible for your ignorance.

  11. Conservatism, or better design? Reliant Stadium is considered one of the better stadiums for actually seeing the game. Cowboys Stadium is very nice to look at, but much of the stadium seating is too far from the field. But, if your goal is simply to look at it, well, I guess it wins on that count.

  12. Reliant was the first ever football stadium with a retractable roof. Conservatism ? I think you misspelled "cutting edge' there amigo. NBA stadiums.. of all professional stadiums, they are the smallest and have to be fully enclosed. Usually the only defining factor for new arenas is how much glass do they have on their front facade. Compared to MLB and NFL stadiums.. all NBA arenas are conservative and very few stand out. AAC went retro with the bricks and arches and detailing.... the whole concept of going retro in sports arenas is now 20 yrs old, since the opening of Camden Yards.. so they aren't even original in their style copying and attempt to appear American classic. More progressive than Houston.. I think not.

  13. Take away Dallas' compensating big screen and sliding wall.. you have a bland stadium with some bad seating.

  14. I'm glad you you support all Texas teams ( except Tech, I assume) But let me throw some perspective at ya. Prior to 2009, We had only 4 National Titles in all sports.( 1 in football 1939, and 3 in softball ).. But since 2009, we've added 8 National titles. (3 men's track, 3 women's track, women's basketball a few months ago, and men's golf). In football, Mack may be the great recruiter.. they are leading the pack for the class of 2012 so far... but Sherman is catching up. We have the number 4 recruiting class for 2012 so far, That has never happened before. That being said... considering the fact that all of Mack's coordinators left when Florida stole Muschamp, and the fact that Gilbert is still your starting QB.. I don't see this season going much better than last for you guys. Just saying.. if ya didn't attend either school.. Now would be a good time to switch allegiance over to the Ags.
