Interesting articles and tweets sent this morning from the Wichita Eagle, in regards to Johnny Stevens buying the Kansas Coliseum.

Commissioners discussing Johnny Stevens' letter of intent regarding offer to buy Coliseum, first reported last week in Wichita Eagle.

Now I have no facts, sources, or even rumors about this, but am I the only one that could see the Stevens renovating the Coliseum, and sending the thunder back there for pure profit? 10,000 seat arena, the horn is still there. Make some bathroom, concourse, and seating renovations and you have a near 100% profit (minus your gameday workers and player salaries) But the way the Stevens think, I don't see this as being far fetched. I don't bring this up to start mass amounts of rumors but rather discussion about the possibility. I found this VERY interesting.

The Kansas.com Article states that he wants to lease it for aviation research.... Kansas.com

I need to verify, but I think the Johnny Steven (no s) who purchased the Thunder with his two brothers is a different person than the Johnny Stevens who is looking into the Coliseum.

Just read the letter....can't be the same person.

It is the Steven brothers that purchased the Thunder.

This guys name is Johnny Stevens.....one letter too much.
