10 Million short

I can't help but wonder what in the world went wrong in the Lucas Oil Stadium project where someone forgot to consider 10 million dollars in annual operating expenses. Those poor Colts.

That would be like a superintendent renovating all the district's facilities by adding air conditioning but forgetting to include the increased utility costs in the budget! Whoops! Have to lay-off 20 teachers next year.

I haven't seen anyone step up and take ownership nor have we seen any project planner's head on a platter.

You don't suppose they knew this all along but didn't think they could get it passed if they said it was 10 M higher upfront do you?
