    Freddy’s is a very good bar.

    It is one part of the culture.

    Yah I love that place.

    Was looking forward to going more when I moved to brooklyn next month.

    It’s compounded by how terrible the nets are. They don’t deserve to play in brooklyn.

    Note that they plan on fighting this beyond the court. Good for them!

    Cincinnati did this to build 2 stadiums. The project was such a success that the city now has to pay the school district 2 million dollars per year for all the lost tax revenue the school once got from the businesses that were there before “development”.

    Fucking ay, this is why the left/right dichotomy is so bogus. I don’t know any self-respecting lefty or righty who would stand for this shit. It’s the mushy, amoral center that people with integrity from across the political spectrum need to unite against. We can sort out the details after we’ve consign the douchebags to the dustbin of history.

    But, I’m sure they’re getting a great deal for the land! Right!?

    I’ve never heard of Freddy’s. It’s great that it’s so popular, has great beer, and the owner and patrons are so cool and friendly. Great, but irrelevant. I don’t care if it’s got a douche for an owner, a single asshole customer, and serves only Natural Light in cans. You still can’t tear it down to build a basketball arena. It’s just as wrong either way.
