The Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority voted 7-2 this morning not to hire Atlanta promoter Jerry Dickerson as a consultant.

Mr. Dickerson wanted the city to use SPLOST funds to build an 18,000- to 20,000-seat arena, which several Augusta commissioners oppose.

Seven of the Augusta-Richmond

Seven of the Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority members seem to have had a flash of sanity. I wonder which 2 did not?

Johnny Edwards just can't

Johnny Edwards just can't stay out of it, huh? Voluntarily leaves his security in Iraq, willfully enters the wrong side of the fence at Cherry Tree (twice) AND shows up at Coliseum Authority meetings? ;-)

Yeah..who were the 2 clowns

Yeah..who were the 2 clowns that thought that hiring this charlatan was a good idea??? Ridiculous. You 2 people PLEASE resign from this board...go ahead and explain yourselves, and THEN resign. No wonder this place is losing money! With pinheads like them making significant decisions, it's a wonder the place can even pay the power bill. Oh, well. Bring on the Arena Football....oh, wait, can't do that. How about the Lynx....oops, forgot about them being gone. Hey, how about that new basketball team coming to town? What??? Augusta State has them??? Not the Civic Center?? Damn. How about having a Tough Man Contest and have all the thugs from Cherry Tree Crossing come out and beat the snot out of each other?? Oh, wait...they only want to throw bottles and cuss out the po-leece! Damn.
