Kicking Back Comments: I am a fan of RedBull Arena honestly, but another soccer specific stadium can not hurt "the cause." There is however significant opposition to this stadium as can be seen here, and here.
Very interested to see what happens next as the deal would seem to be tied significantly to Mayor Bloomberg's remaining term.
