FC Dallas: Buyer Beware!

August 12, 2013

drpepperOn Thursday, the Dallas Park Board will convene to discuss awarding a multi million dollar contract to FC Dallas allowing them to operate the new Elm Fork Soccer Complex. Plans are being made for the world class soccer complex to host the Dr Pepper Dallas Cup in 2014. Trouble is, we don’t think that FC Dallas knows about the 60+ gas wells and gas refinery  being planned next door to the complex. Here is the opportunity for the City of Dallas to tell FC Dallas, BUYER BEWARE!

You can read more about the soccer deal at The Dallas News



Last week, Trinity East Energy reignited their three SUPS that show plans to install more than 60 gas wells and a gas refinery next door.  Read about the agreement being proposed at The Dallas News

It is hoped that Dallas Park and Rec head, Willis Winters exhibits complete transparency on Thursday at the Park Board meeting and discusses what lies ahead for the soccer players and their ability to breathe while playing soccer.

World class.

    Breathe deeply when running and playing soccer. The toxic, carcinogenic and neurotoxic emissions for the gas wells, compressor facility and refinery can only kill you if you are exposed to them. Don’t worry … be happy! We have too many kids now. Killing off a few hundred or a few thousand by exposing them to fugitive emissions from natural gas operations will only make life easier for those who survive – there will be less crowding, more food and a lot less competition on those soccer fields.

    What is the value of a few human lives compared to the financial benefit to an out-of-town corporation, a “football” club or a city? My guess is, not much!

    Hmmm…The announcement that Jerry Jones is getting out of Valley Ranch is all the news today! It would only make sense that he can’t afford to jeopardize the health of his high-dollar assets in a potential gas drilling corridor. Sounds like he can’t wait to get the heck out of there!!

    I work in Valley Ranch and it is an area of well-educated people with expensive homes.
    The VR public will not stand for a drilling corridor once they really understand what this means.
    Does anyone have the figures on the amounts Dallas stands to gain from royalties on the river bottom land? My research says such amounts can be huge. I don’t want the money, but think the public should know what the city is fighting for-how appealing this is.

      25% royalties has been mentioned,don’t know exactly. Find out what happens at City Hall on August 28th. We need lots of Dallas people there to speak to the council before they cast this legacy vote.
