I am NOT in favor of tearing down the Civic Arena. I don't want to tear down much, except politicians that only want to churn our landscape.

I don't want to tear down the Civic Arena. There is very little that should be torn down from our landscape. To build, add value. To destroy, subtract. I am on the side of building by increasing, by addition, by expansion.

Any third grader knowns that 1 + 1 = 2 and that 2 is larger than 1.

Luke's math: 1 + 1 - 1 = 1. That's not growth.

We used to have a Civic Arena that could host concerts, basketball games, tracktor pulls and high school graduations. With the new Consol Energy Arena we'll be able to host the Penguin hockey games and the next day open for the Circus.

There is any demand for luxery box seats to go to a high school grduation, or college graduation as some of them have been held there too. There is no demand for luxery boxes for a circus or a monster truck jam or even Disney On Ice.

With the Civic Arena here, re-tooled for sure, we'd be able to host a mega block party when the Pens play a HOME playoff game, with the overflow spectators going to the Civic Arena.
