I do not like the way pro sports leagues take advantage of cities -- playing one against the other -- and try to extort public funding for what is essentially private business. The proposed Coyotes deal is one of the most ridiculous examples of corporate welfare subsidies for a professional sports franchise. Massive public subsidies also skew the free market allowing teams to exist in markets where there is not sufficient demand. So, yes, while it would be nice to see the Coyotes move back to Canada, I find those other aspects interesting as well.
