    I heard grumblings that Coyotes brass actually believe that the Sting were pulling attendance away from the bottom of the basement NHL team. You could put everyone at a Sting game into a Coyotes game and the Coyotes will still suck. At least they only needed to average another 3k or so at a Sting game to make them a contender.

    On another note, I would wager a large sum of money that the NLL will be back in Phoenix in the next few years.

    LOL. So what's their excuse for this past season, I wonder.

    "The most interesting league data may concern the sad-sack Coyotes, who were last in ticket revenue at $450,000. The team is losing more than $30 million a season and was contacted over the past season by six potential buyers, including Balsillie's lawyer, Richard Rodier."

    "It has been a rough week for the Phoenix Coyotes. First comes news that they lose the rights to 2004 first round pick Blake Wheeler and now we find out the club lost $30 million during the 2007-08 season. The Toronto Star uncovered a “secret document” that revealed the gate receipts of the 30 NHL franchises and surprise, the Coyotes came in dead-last with a projected operating loss of $30 million. "

    "One report in the Toronto Star said that Basillie had the Coyotes on his target list but the team’s lease with the city of Glendale is a potential deal-breaker. If the Coyotes are indeed losing $30 million a year then that lease is absolutely the only thing keeping them in Phoenix. Well, that and the fact that NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman along with hockey’s best known emissary, Wayne Gretzky, would lose a tremendous amount of face if the team returned to Canada. Of course how long can a team continue to lose $30 million a year and stay in business? "

    Since you're so pessimistic about this league why are you posting here?

    I have to say, the league's credibility is not much higher than the Coyotes management's.

    At least it's got potential. Unlike anything in Phoenix.

    Yeah, 'cause North Tonawanda is a hotbed. I spent 30 years in NY and have only been here 9, but saying that Phoenix has no potential is incorrect. They have plenty of potential, if they can get the leaders to do something right :eek:.

    Sometimes it is better to keep your mouth shut and let people think you're a fool than to open it and remove the doubt.

    There is a ton of potential in Phoenix, many times more over than in the Buffalo metro area. I was in Buffalo last Spring. What a dirty smelly nothing of a town. If it wasn't for Niagara Falls it probably wouldn't even exist.

    Such insecurity to bash another city like that. REAL big cities like Boston and New York don't bother with that, they keep it on sports. BTW how're the Cardinals doin? :D Buffalo just wasn't your cup of tea so you find it necessary to bash it? Just sad man

    And where are you FROM?

    You are 55 years old, I know you were not born in Phoenix cause I think it was still just a desert when you came into this world. or maybe you were born there and your parents left you in the desert for the coyotes but you were rescued by traveling gypsies????

    I don't know where you were in Buffalo but I was there THIS spring and couldn't have enjoyed the town and the people more. I thought it was adorable. I happily admitted in the Buffalo forum, after my return, that I misjudged them and their city.

    What I find funny is that you would be dissing Buffalo (a vibrant college town from what I saw) when you are in the AZ forum and my impression of the "city" part Phoenix was something akin to LA's South Central. Down by the Hard Rock was about as nice as it got.

    I imagine global warming is going to be a real b!tch in Phoenix. 130 degrees not warm enough for you??

    And I bet Lake Erie is going to look real good in a few years as your water sources continue to dry up.
