Well, the first thing we benefit from a new arena is that the Penguins aren't leaving town(Thank God). But could this mean more for Pittsburgh in the future? What do you see from the New Arena in 2009? More Business? Downtown/Uptown revival? Attraction of high-scale events like basketball tourneys and the usual concerts? An Arena Football Team?

I don't think you'll see an AFL team anytime soon in Pittsburgh. From what I've experienced in Da 'Burgh there is room for only one football team in town and that's the STEELERS!

I could see them hosting some NCAA Basketball, maybe an occassional NBA game (MAYBE), and definitely some concerts year round now!

Not true, we already have a couple of minor football teams in town. Pittsburgh Colts play in a NAFL league. I beleieve they will get an Arena team sooner or later, we have an AFL2 team here in Youngstown.
