LOL Peter! But then how would we fill up hundreds of pages in this never-ending thread?!
All of this Moyes bashing is kinda tiresome. Yeah, the guy wasn't a good owner. But sheesh, the Coyotes have NEVER made money. It's not all Moyes' fault. The franchise has been a money-loser from day one. Sure, it could have been different if the first rink hadn't had the poor seating for hockey, if the team had won in the playoffs, if the recession hadn't hit hard a few years ago, etc. And if my grandmother had wheels she'd be a wagon.
What burns me most about this attitude is that the same people who proclaim that Phoenix deserves umpteen chances are the same ones who say that Winnipeg lost its team fair and square after a brief bailout attempt in 1996. You can't have it both ways. If Winnipeg deserved to lose the Jets in 96, Phoenix deserves to lose the Coyotes in 2010.
