Yay or Nay on the new Rays stadium site? (POLL)

Thought it would be interesting to do a poll for the proposed Rays stadium site. Only thing is, I can't attach the poll to the already made Rays Stadium thread so I'm just to make this, sticky it and lock it. Discussion on the proposal should continue in the Stadium thread.

Edit - I can't seem to lock the thread and leave the poll open so please, for the sake of keeping discussion in one place, post in the thread linked below if you want to discuss:

Hey, if the Rays don't use it, maybe Amazon will?

There's no doubt the rays are going to use it but I know what you're saying but even the commissioner of baseball approved the area so give. And so sorry if commissioners city council and the mayor were not in the loop. Hagan pulled this off kudos to him.

The reason I'm posting so much is that I've been following this for 5 years even back when Joe Maddon was taking us to multiple playoffs and world series. Me and my sister would drive from Gandy and Westshore area and it was a nightmare to get all the way down there. The logistics are not good plus the staduim is laughed at by many. Anything in center Tampa will be a blessing.

For everyone in Tampa yeah. A new stadium even in St pete would attract more people as well.

I voted yes, but I do have some concerns about views. It's not the best spot, but I just don't see how any other land can be procured. Originally I thought south of the Selmon on Ybor Channel would have been best, then Smiley linked that suggestion from MLB. I just don't know where they could put it and have great views while still being accessible. This might all be for not though. I don't see how they get this thing paid for.
