Wow an arena possibly in Mississippi.... I mean we must be the only major metro with no arena.. Even Little Rock has an arena... Come on we have nearly 3 million people in this state. I think Jackson could afford an arena,but most likely they will not build it...

Yeah...that's just what Jackson needs. How about a bigger jail first? Most Jackson "residents" deserve that more. What a joke.

Another piss poor idea. Let's spend money & buldoze most of Jxn then start over. That'll bring the business back & run out the drug dealers/gang-bangers.

I can't believe that anyone would even think of sinking money into Jxn. The $ would be better spent in Madison or Rankin county. Just look around Jxn., the city is about as appealing as a swim in the septic tank. Nowhere to stay, nothing to do. So what is going to attract people to the areana? People tend to want to be able to go out to eat, shop, be entertained AND go to the main event at the arena. I've been to several Big sporting events over the years- NFL games, Nascar (not a big fan- but it was free), and NBA games...all of which were preceeded by time at resturants and other activities. No safe place to enjoy yourself. I can't even imagine staying at a hotel in Jackson.
