    Bucks oppose strip club planned across the street from arena

    If you wanted to open a strip club across the street from an NBA Arena, wouldn’t you have to name it the Gold Club? And make sure Patrick Ewing had free admission for life?

    We don’t know what they plan to name it, but there is an effort started to open a “Gentleman’s Club” directly across the street from the BMO Bradley Center in Milwaukee — and not surprisingly the Bucks have come out in opposition to the idea. So have the Milwaukee Admirals, a minor league hockey team, and Marquette University, which plays games at the BMO Bradley Center.

    So reports the Milwaukee Business Journal.

    “Without a doubt, the presence of a strip club will change the way our neighborhood is perceived and hurt our business,” the letter said.

    The letter noted that the space is in a city parking garage where many Bradley Center customers park, so they would be forced to pass the strip club on their way to the center. Many attendees are families with young children, the letter said.

    You have to think that in the reality of city politics this idea is DOA. Milwaukee politicians are not going to anger an ambassador for the city like a pro sports team, nor risk the Bucks and others starting to try and mobilize their fan base on this issue (read: mobilize voters).

    Now, if you ever put an NBA team in Tampa, good luck building an arena where there wouldn’t be a strip club across the street.

    But that’s another city, can’t see it happening in this case.

    Jamaal Tinsley may offer to play for the Bucks for room and board.

    This isn't as bad as it sounds. NBA players generally don't **** where they eat. You're not going to see NBA players regularly showing up at a strip club where everyone will be looking for them.

    It wasn't about being the team everyone loved, it was about beating the teams everyone else loved.

    Division Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 1989, 1990, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008
    Conference Champions 1955, 1956, 1988, 2005
    NBA Champions 1989, 1990, 2004

    This is not about the players so much as it is the fans of those teams mentioned in the article.

    I think Tinman and SJax **** close enough to where they ate.

    As someone said about Tampa, Houston is the same way. You can go to the club then hit the DQ next door for dessert.
