    the sting are dead
    they will never resurrect
    all players have been moved
    the franchise rights can be sold to a city for "expansion purposes" like portland did when they bought anaheims rights
    but will have to do an expansion draft

    wrong..Portland was a true expnansion team...they tried to buy anaheim but the difference was $200K. So Angela told Jason williams no. She has done very good, but last I heard Jason Williams is still trying to sell the rights-which might still have outstanding debts too.

    Doug Moss actually answered one of my E-Mails. He simply stated that when a final decision was made on the team fans would be notified.

    Or put it another way: All that is left is the carpet. They will sell that to Florida and maybe officially announce that the Sting have folded.

    The Cup game was the last moment for the Sting. I was there and I will have fond memories of Conn flying through the air and scoring the 11th goal for the Sting....two too short.

    I'm not sure the old Roch owner could afford to buy a lacrosse ball, let alone a whole squad. :D Most of the money he got from the sale went to the people he owed, not his own pockets.

    For what it's worth, a couple weeks ago my son was ordering tickets for the Coyotes/Red Wings game. The on hold message for the Coyotes ticket ;ine still lists the Arizona Sting.

    Forbes suggests Phoenix Coyotes be sold

    Looks like the Coyotes are still trying to sell the Sting. Reading this, it sounds like shutting down the Sting is the only answer the Coyotes can come up with to fix their problems. Sure hope they can find an owner to sell to, even though I don't feel optimistic about it.
