Clearly, Carroll Stadium cannot be the Indy Eleven's home in the future. There's a reason Ozdemir already has talked about building a soccer-only facility in the city. Carroll is small and antiquated, an erector set of a stadium.Hey, Bob, get a clue as to why Indianapolis residents have dropped their subscription to your newspaper in droves. They're sick and tired of your newspaper's endless propaganda for every scheme that the downtown mafia can cook up to line their own pockets. Most of us could give damn less about how many people showed up for an opening game for Indy Eleven that was over-hyped by the local media like anything else related to sports. There weren't 11,000 people there contrary to news reports. It was a sell out if you count all of the free tickets the team gave away to entice people to show up for its inaugural game. If you want a new soccer stadium in Indianapolis, you and your jock strap-sniffing friends can pay for it yourselves. Maybe you and the Turkish hustler can get Alex Carroll to fix up the IUPUI stadium with some of that $20 million he's getting from Indianapolis taxpayers for that pile of rubbish building on the East side.
UPDATE: Check out this photo taken at the Indianapolis Indians game this weekend showing the empty stands despite the great weather that was posted on their Twitter page by Beau Barrett. I guess the Indy Eleven's gain this weekend came at the expense of the Indians.
