The accountant they quite in the article does not sound very bright...or at the very least should learn to use a better argument. Just because Quebecor would pay more then in Anaheim and Pittsburgh does not make it a good deal, is not as bad a deal as the governments in those cities god...
Furthermore, Bédard says he ran a comparison between the Quebecor agreement and the ones in place in Pittsburgh and Anaheim, two NHL cities which recently opened new arenas financed 100 per cent by public funds.
He says the $9.3 million Quebecor would pay annually for the naming rights and rent is higher than the $8.5 million paid by the Penguins and Consol Energy in Pittsburgh and the $5.5 million paid by the Ducks and Honda in Anaheim.
"This is why I can't understand how people can say the city made a bad deal with Quebecor," Bédard said.
