Sherlund awful Cheryl congratulations on getting the deal but can we say it's done this. Wouldn't say it is done scenes so congratulations all the county that route great win. There really home run obviously for the red wings and for the academy as well. Cheryl how important was that deadline to getting this guilt on Mina and know that you guys were working feverishly to get. To get this deal done as soon as possible but it it seemed like this action really started to happen once we heard from the International League and they set a march 1 deadline. Well might actually might not mine Jeanne was to make sure that we had to compatible legislature for the February meeting which has tonight. And the reason for that quite frankly is that knowing that the team that's ready to open up on April Bechtel wanted to make sure that we had. A league and played it. That really helps support the red wings and protects the taxpayer here in the county of Monroe before opening day. On the I'd certainly I'd just take it would be advantageous to have the team. Planned. Month to month not based server especially that we're putting capital. Dollars and two retaining yes stadium at 120 my deadline was really tight. And I'm really glad that we're able to meet that and certainly with the legislation going to work on it legislature tonight. We'll be able to meet and exceed. What the internationally but it just at all. Monroe County executive Sheldon off slow is our guest here in the sports are 957 ESPN. I'd talk about the importance too of making this a ten year deal the fact that. In a sort of speaking kick the can down the road here for another year at least you won't have to worry about this such conversation here and when he nineteen. I he'll certainly be originally but that's what nearly you can tell as we embarked on looking at what is the Pakistan and and hopefully twenty years look like. I would direct you red wings and with I only children her and her great leadership and her team. Whether to make sure that you know we got it right and we examined every aspect of the leaders began to picture that the eighteen remain viable. I'm certainly Bristol her daily contribution. To mineral county. I'd won at least applaud and celebrate by equally important the quality of life that they are brought to directly being operated in the pro county. No we're looking at having people make a choice to live in Monroe County to invest in Monroe County businesses to compare. On the topic content on the quality of life and you can't say the words about quality of life without equating that with the Rochester red wings and their contributions felt very important. That we kept our rupture community based on the rumblings here our community. Mineral county executive Schulte an awful joining us in the sports bar with danger to tightly on ESPN Rochester. You mentioned some of those capital projects that are going to be in place up for frontier field what what can fans look for in terms of improvements of the stadium were a key to the stadium. Her while we. Recently has not terminator fans have noticed we had a safety netting put in place in accordance with the legal requirement they keep adding upgraded lighting. Structural appeal restoration and a new pedestrian bridge or even conversion of the the field constantly in the is that for other band and in the future things that you won't actually be able to deeply you'll certainly experience or upgrades to our heating and cooling of some upgrades to elect electrical. Security enhancement where enhancements in painting the structural steel just for starters. You know we working hand in glove all kidding aside with the team to make sure that. As we look at the capital expenditures that were making on behalf of the county accounting yet not. That the team is getting that they need to make sure that the league is really. In tip top premier shape that our fans argued there was certainly. We are one of the premier stadium but all of the internationally and we intend to keep the child like that. Jerrold that to help bridge the gap here at the our our return ticket purchasers going to be asked will there be a ticket should surcharge here. Well certainly that ticketing. It but it is in the hands of there are things in and all of the ticket sales with. It has done that the county does receive a portion of the ticket sales proceeds that will go on under the new legal under the same terms and conditions as before. I think that the fans will continue to experience. Family friendly and Stanley affordable. Entertainment. And and sports here right mineral county at a restaurant linked. Cheryl you know your campaign was one of the promises your campaign was breaking up a lot of the LDCs that work. Running rampant throughout our county and and of course frontier field was one of those and talk for a second about. What the count me running this stadium does in breaking up these LDCs and in how it it it translates to savings for taxpayers. Thought I appreciate the questions first of all it really provides transparent because that is. You know I'd a deal between the county at the grow in Iraq like rattling. That's incredibly important there's no middle person and there's no LB entity that. Joining the two parties together with Peter. Contract between the county. In their Bradley and others transparency which is incredibly important me. In addition to that end eliminating the LTD is we're going to be meeting about 320000. Dollars a year. The first services that our parent to put it says America administrative summer intern. Both kinds of content will not have to do. Panel to taxpayers with anymore smoke break cost savings and eliminating LDP's. Looking pristine and other cost savings as well within the these requirements and maintenance agreement of force but in the end. Yesterday was a real home runs for the team in the community as well and so grateful to my team. Who helped negotiate the deal I was very intricately involved in those negotiations that I know that. For the red wings as well. Lot of conversations a lot of hard work but we got it right for everybody and yesterday was a real plan. But an account executive share the novel is our guest here in the sports bar. And so now the red wings are done and Gerard amassed his question fully understanding is not your jurisdiction but we have other issues and how we looking at the rhinos perhaps being evicted. We were told there were ten million dollars estate ten million dollars state set aside for the blue cross arena the war memorial. My question being here. How do we get. Everybody on the scene page in this town it seems like. Hero here in Rochester it's that. You you have a lot of political infighting I'm sure you hear this question quite often. Are you know certainly. It I I just try to get my job done and that to make sure that we have a high quality of life for the people here in the community that we helped buster economic development and hockey people working in employee that really is the backbone of what could definitely stronger community stronger as well. You know the situation with the rhinos and I I just I hope that the other titles on the that he can come to. You know some understanding that begin in the room and I hammer out an agreement no. They cannot. Peacefully code that's been making no forward and mom and compassion and I'm hopeful that they'll be able to. You know work out whatever differences they have. But you know you you raise not a great point and I'll tell you what we bring in new businesses that are coming out of the first questions they today. You know what he has to deal perhaps came in you know where you go after work. What what's the quality of life here like. And it has a lot about a community that week and talk about was pride. The great frontier feel that we can of the great amenities that we have that are that great an experience. The baseball team that we have with their front wing. Police acting differing accounts of pride in community. Natalie to the president that you're here but both were looking to locate here. Or result of taking your business as well and I agree that you know we need to make sure that we have both types of amenities. That really do enhance the quality of life and again attract people of businesses to our community. I love the idea that the red wings are secure for at least the next ten years at their stadium because of the work that you were able to do with it. And quite frankly it'll be like that there is. An option to bring you mutually pop agree ability the party but I think you know the care. That we both sides stuck in getting through that steel and making sure that it was very thoroughly examined very complex situation. Will provide longevity for the rattling. Well and I love that I love the longevity along the Volvo long term vision. For what frontier field will be for the next twenty years and I guess my Mike what makes me curious about what's happening with. Both blue cross three in the emirates and the tele sports stadium. And the rhinos he is this a matter of the International League just having this kind of clout this weights where you know we. You you've just got an organization in this league that that. Has it together won't accept anything less than what we were able to provide them with the Rochester red is when you consider that the Merck's kind of kicking the can down the year lease view year to year but with their leases at blue cross arena. Million dollars. Pretty Mobley the president of the addition nationally when you wonderful. Cattlemen and certainly noticed is that while. I would tell you however that you know was it was great to have him certainly I am to come here back. Late summer early all he did that I was grateful to have the chance to expel him and and see what the league you know what's really needed. But quite frankly there was no real identifier on my part as county executives to make sure that the red wings stayed here and I think that's what it takes to take the you know the Ford played and the desire to get the job done and it takes willing partners to come to the table and I applaud the Wyoming and again Mason and your partner and their whole. They're whole staff to do just that to join to join accounting and just work through it. Honestly didn't think Elkhart working and always bring good results when people have good intentions and getting the job done and and that it would add. I chair I'm sure you you know don't. Locate all the social media comments but I would have to imagine your office her comments on this curious about you. Personally here I predict how much did you hear from red wing fans because I would imagine you eat the if you did heard anything. You heard that passion and you know it you you go into his business knowing that that sometimes you're gonna have to make unpopular decisions so. I know this is all now behind you but what was that whole experience liken. How did you make it through. You know again and again I think I'm says the goal was put to make sure that other troubling if I had the opportunity to figure Monroe County. But you know equally important was that the taxpayers in the count he had been Rowell also had their interest protected. And that would talk a good deal that was really a win for everybody and that's just what little time plan I can say. That it was I think you can land where everybody involved and I knew that it was going to be. You know I'll bet it'll probably get we are looking at a twenty year agreement that have would have expired. You're looking at what is the next twenty years look like in your undoing in building the Indy in between and really doing business like completely different way. Well it was it was a process that took it as a given and take what would it really took was. Willing participant to sit down roll up. Roll our sleeves and just get the job done. That's my bad my commitment from day one of the community and now we did just that in and the situation like I can't say thank you went off. Certainly to our team here in the count me. And pay and dial lead over her team as well forget the job done for the people here in our community deserves it. She is Monroe County executive Sheryl an awful good with their time in joining us here in the sports bar danger of a tightly on ESPN Rochester Cheryl I know. I speak on behalf of Michael host gene into in saying congratulations once again this is a great deal for our community I know how tirelessly you when your team. Worked on getting this deal done I love the long term vision I love everything that's coming out of this congratulations once again. Well think that's for having out out remember opening day is April 2 look at all. Yes we need spring began here in Italy we knew we definitely a and paper paper that bothered to I would go back to talk about the team might look now that they don't wanna talk about show expect I would suspect it's. Appreciate it shell and enjoy your enjoy your afternoon I have an amateur and now I haven't won yet jailed an awful joining us here in the sports bar. Mean the one question I wanted to know was. Our ticket prices gonna go up and I don't think they are but I didn't hear that definitively and guess it's not her place to say that horse. But having the ticket surcharge will make him how I guess. I imagine there be just some kind of a surcharge on the ticket okay and we can look at and be like oh buck 52 bucks whatever the surcharge might be wars are going to want what's that. It's the cost of doing business you know like this deal probably wasn't ideal. For both sides since there's probably some give and take somewhere so what can you be at peace with what can you live with the you know I think that the Red Wings' experience is going to be. What it's always been what we can expect to see if frontier field is what we've seen for years and years and years just under a constant summer of entertainment fun. No corners cut a weak world class operation right here in our backyard. And I don't know that that happens if they have to cut corners in and make concessions in this deal and I don't feel like they did it doesn't. Donna we like it it but I guess we'll see over the course time whether doctorates. Why I'm glad that they figured out here in advance how do you pay for necessary. Repair renovations to frontier field eagle there now it's beautiful but. You tell me how is that gonna look five winners from now. All right do you live in Rochester New York you own a home in Rochester New Yorkers in the upkeep. I remember the final days of silver stadium danger. We all looked back all silver nostalgic. So for stadium. Was run down OK at the and we needed a new home. Desperately. There was a renovate sheen's circa 1982. Els a band aid on it but my got by the end it was here yeah yeah it was painful if you wait ten years without repair. Or upkeep to frontier field and I don't you're driving people away so that's when he that was the most important part of. Hewitt twenty years without upkeep to an arena a couple all. Wing Tia well. A lot about what. Cheryl an awful said you know when we asked her about. The twenty year lease that the ten year with the tenure. Extension. The option that the idea that. You've got some long term vision here you know and what what is it take to get that deal done is it that you don't my thing my thought was what the International League is just. They're just better equipped in in no on a mobilize in the know that that they have a standard that is set if you don't. Meet our standard we will go elsewhere. Well what about the other sports leagues and and it really it according to hurt comes down until leadership. Wanting. To get the deal done wanting. To do more. With that that team and and I mean I hear that I think you're probably right. There's anybody in this city that really wants to work. As a partner with the Rochester Americans to anybody in the city office that really wants to work with the Rochester rhinos at this point. And I can't anybody from the cedar turn my phone call I think that I will say this. Optics suggests he's pleaser you know he's calling me back at 10 o'clock at night answering questions on this story. On I don't know the seat took it personally that we broke that pays the BM Merck's aren't happy story last year. But they need to be more transparent. And look I got asked the question how we all get along better in this town Rochester. Easing unique in the sense that you're gonna always have one side of the aisle the other side of the Allen sometimes it's tough to get things done but it seems like. We have Morton. Problems and other communities when it comes to getting projects and people wanting credit and whatnot. And now I look over the city and they have not one but two problems in my opinion one problem being the blue cross arena that needs work the other problem being. You have days. Relatively. New soccer stadium that is in danger beings. Vacant. Yeah I don't want it. I know it's cliche. It's gonna come down to who wants it for you know gene it'll it'll always come down whoever wanted to know what they say in Rochester we are a working class blue blue color down now. We'll bring our lunch pails hero after nose to the grindstone. Right. Yet when I mean I brought my lunch pail to work today did you. That's the kind Stevie this is. But I'll give her credibility of Cheryl an awful credit he you know. She had the here. The complaints in and boy it got loud there the last couple of weeks with fans. And and citizens just are you kidding me really this what we're talking about we're talking about this team the Rochester red wings not. Being in Rochester anymore after over a hundred years after having the longest tenure. Of any minor league franchise in America. She got healed up. I never believed danger that. They wouldn't be playing in April honest never believed the first second but what I thought was gonna happen and I fear was gonna happen once all. RA well we can't figure this out so all let's just put together a little short term thing year no. And you meet that's where the red wings dug in their heels there and said no we need ten years plus ten. We don't wanna be dealing with this and I'm happy actually fill holes sales staff we'll take the part of the Rochester red yeah that answer any hesitating asked for any and all. I walked in this morning with Al wings general manager Dan Mason congratulated him and he had a big smile on his face to to deal. He was making the rounds this morning to it to talk about what this deal means for the red wings in the future and and again. Let's put let's put an exclamation point on the end of this story in let's say let's move on let's talk about baseball moving forward we don't have to worry about this anymore. Yeah you might see a surcharge on your ticket at some point but understand that might be the small price to day. In order to have this great asset in our community the Rochester red wings who've been in our community for as long as they have. Now can we can we look forward again to the horizon look for the future and think okay. You mentioned silver stadium in its last days genes before I am just been his last days it was decrepit. What at what stage is blue cross arena right now and will you know we imagine that ten million dollars I I would speculate that the state was given us ten million dollars and we didn't use it it's gone or maybe that ten million dollars became the thirty million dollars that rocked the mom. Maybe there maybe by not taking that and we got an additional twenty. Were allowed to speculate about all of that right maybe there's some some way of figuring out whether or not that's true or not might. My question would be then. What would renovated blue cross and it looked like do an easy pass the point of repair today. I signaled something now. That's my position since day one how does a law Condit we get it done too we come up with a plan that we lead the conversation here. Our I don't mind mentioning our competition danger years ago all was actually Matthews. Okay years ago. Who let the conversation gets frontier field built okay now this is our generation dangers bizarre Shelby is our time. Can we leave the conversation how we get into arena in this stuff. Who's gonna step up because. OK if you wanna point to other communities. This is a blue cross street of bigger and nicer than Sadie unsaid or insert he's sure in a lot. Syracuse what are they Syracuse we deserve better in this town we do we have more. Is more cost effective than what you have right now in the blue cross arena have we. He's got to read it too big for what we've become. A degree question. Yeah right now I mean we got 101000 people in there for Gionta a couple of weeks ago. And that's the biggest. Attendance number that that camera to have seen how long. It doesn't happen often and you rather be in a situation where you can't get a ticket because it's sold out look Karl I'm not. Our team Neiman sellout this year. Usually they do for a via brick city game. I still think I would like at 101000 seat arena. In this town just so you can attract those major concerts by the way you cut your Internet business danger. How often do we get passed off in this town because the blue cross arena isn't you know to the specs of what these major before. Sherri I mean yeah not getting the Red Hot Chili Peppers does there they were doing you know keep accent right you're you're gonna get passed outlawing it. Justin Timberlake or you know brutal mall ours. It's stuff you can get by at without you know when I think in five was last year okay. The Maroon 5 insured has a a pretty decent show I think go to what I'm sure that there'll be that sellout. If it came close aren't sold to panic sets the bar right there. That should be the boss what you you can get high eight. I'm feeling you get by if you can get her screeching every couple of years right at me like that does not feel like that's always the hot ticket of blue cross arena. Hey the boss is coming to campers recede like impresses you know gonna continue to tore it and cut makes his way through then. Guy that that's that will be that but you know maybe hip hop show on occasion a standup comedian like our our boy Kevin Hart is gonna become an AO whatever that might. Be. Again I would say you're probably. Better off operating from a position of it's harder to get a ticket to enamored scheme because more of these games are selling out I'm not saying you need to. Shrink. An arena. I have to its size I don't know what that looks like downtown I don't know what that feels like tore community but. When you view Rochester. From 30000 feet it's not the same community it was 203040. Years ago it's not even close. It's gotten smaller it's not growing it's shrinking and if you continue to do business. In a venue that's that expensive. To operate just to turn on the lights. And your operating and it did and it quarter capacity. Half capacity. Nightly. I don't know I mean what's more cost effective. At some point do you look at is building a new arena. That's. Eight it's got the specs for what OR. I don't know I don't have the answer but I love that we at least have somebody in our community. Who's got that vision who we who worked out a deal that that is more long term than just one year lease a kicker kicked. I don't think she had a choice though on that matter I think that was the red wings digging their heels in danger but. Tour credit doll she got the deal done so we thank the county executive from got to credit. He's followed through on a promise she made when she campaigned you know one of their big points was breaking up these LDCs. Look she can now say hey look at what we did a frontier field we save taxpayers all this money and you can tweeting in at ESPN Rochester where by the way we love hearing from you. I don't mind paying an extra two or three dollars for tickets because I still have a ticket the bye and that's the great thing about this we have our team and they're not going anywhere. Let's go weeks. Listen if you're upset if that indeed is a case we don't know that to be true. Again. Little thing in this town goes a long way walk. And walk. Walked you can find parking around downtown but if you wanna park close you're gonna pay soul. I can understand that maybe hammer bands don't when he gets in you know and cold outside it's not comfortable but. During the summer for the red wings. Walked a little bit.

Little moments where we can get you know get her teeth sink our teeth into something meaty football related and that's why. What's our pleasure honestly to have head coach of the Syracuse football team do you a favor joining us here in the sports bar. Coach how are yeah.

We get done with our game I think I must've done eighty to ninety miles an hour on the expressway disallow can get home in time. To watch that game you guys upsetting clumsy and why was that experience what did that win do for your program. Well I think it was huge noise it's the biggest win in my coaching career as a head football coach that's for dog venture. And just concede. The people in the stands and and that meant that happened after the game and to be live on ESPN and and they have a reporter talking to you and I literally could not hear and she got closer and I'm like I can't hear what the questions asked. An issue got closer I'm like you've got to stop my wife is in the in the stands I think it was unbelievable. Unbelievable loud. How loud the crowd was that the best kept festivities afterwards and then just the players looking in the players' side and knowing they accomplish something that's going to be whipped them. And they're going to be able to other kids about it their grandkids about it it was really something it was really special come even excited even brought it up. But thanks a lot I appreciate. Syracuse head football coach geno favors joining us in sports part danger and the tech Leah. Do you know we we knew going in the last season you had a really really brutal schedule. That Clemson win was was massive the talk about the rest of the season your thoughts on last season. As a whole Lester for the program. Well first of all it. When Eric W my quarterback on the winning football coach when he's not I'm not and you know we've got to find a way it's two to get that. Guide. The play an entire season and if not that we've got to do a much better job. Of giving our football team to be able to play without him and that's whether it's a backup quarterback are getting the defense even play better but it just seemed like as he goes we go. And we're gonna work really hard historian. To make sure that our football team understand that. We wanna keep being helped me. But we've got other people they need to step up if he's not going to be able to place September and October were for two years we're winning football team in the month of November we're not good. And we got to find a way to be even better in September and October and that could be a whole lot better in November. Mayor how a year your initial thoughts coaches you know we're looking forward to spring football. You know hot do you think that the defense will improve coming up the season. You know is interesting because if you went to the first nine games this season we would we would say the defense was greatly improved. And I really felt that we'd done the things that we needed to do on offense for the first nine games we add six wins. We'd been sitting at six in three going into those last three games now on what you will last three games. Through injuries and everything else we just weren't very good on defense there's there's no way to. You know sugarcoat it we weren't very good. And we've got to find a way to continue to keep more people healthy. Increase our which I think we've done with this last recruiting class I think we've got a really good one so we can carry more people in the November we can do a better job of those last four games of the year. Syracuse head football coach Dino neighbors in the sports bar with danger in the tightly on ESPN Rochester. Coach you know another year the program you mentioned. That class coming in we know that this is a process in the are working to build something. Great something that that these fans haven't seen the longtime talk about this class that's coming in your initial thoughts. I've written wolf first of all on paper is the best class we've got probably I don't know the last ten years here for sure. And I really think that there's some movers and shakers in this class are gonna have an opportunity. To play earlier this freshman now that being said. It's everybody's job. Every culture every player on this football team every redshirt freshman and sophomore or junior and every senior to make sure that those guys don't get an opportunity. I I was talking to ought to have to couple my god don't talk into our our run Rebecca. Are running back today and wait much in my job is to recruit guys that can teach you about. Your job is to make sure that those guys don't get to play until after you graduate and that's the way needed to handle and we're gonna make this team better they get it better from the bottom up. And that stuff is gonna rise to the top and eventually it will be supplement to top that pot of soup. That everybody can eat everybody can swallow that these bowl seasons and bowl rating the wanna get my finger pitted when she's always. Thank you coaches Syracuse football Dino neighbors are favored here joining us in the sports park. So as we peek ahead of the schedule. September 1 it'll be here before in knowing that opener against western Michigan what are your thoughts on you know of the schedule that is ahead for your program. You know when you look at it you I would like to say hey it even easier than last year. When you really look at it it's not really not that much different when you think that we're trading LSU for Notre Dame. And look we're trading. Western Michigan are central Michigan and Connecticut for middle Tennessee got don't give Iran cultures it was really good obviously they beat us. But. I would say it a little. Less stressful than last year but not much I mean I've been very surprised if we're not in the top ginned up the schedule again but Woolsey.
