AEG Thanks the Downtown NFL Stadium Fans

New, 28 comments

AEG President and CEO Tim Leiweke is stoked about Tuesday's City Council vote to allow AEG's plans for an NFL Stadium and revamped Convention Center in Downtown LA to move forward. So stoked that he vlogged about it, with a full string section dubbed into the background. In the YouTube video, posted yesterday, Leiweke thanked the "100,000 fans who have been unbelievable in your support of our vision to bring the NFL back to LA." We tallied just how positive he is about Tuesday's decision--here's how many times he used the following words:

Unbelievable: 2
Vision: 2
Faith: 2
Support: 3
Thanks: 2

However, halfway through the vlog, he does start hedging a little, saying that AEG is going to "try not to let you down," "maybe" get a Pac-12 championship game, and "hopefully" AEG will be moving dirt on the project one year from now. Is AEG concerned about them fightin' words from Majestic Realty in Industry?
