I was asking because LeToux himself seemed to indicate they might be. His interview (I think it was linked above) where he mentions how the practice facilities aren't good and upgrades had been promised but not delivered is one example. He also flat out said it was about the money, too.
I don't follow the Union closely, but I was under the impression you give: solid attendance, good buzz in the community, and a very solid sponsorship deal. I'm a bit puzzled as to why they'd need the cash, too. Especially when LeToux was willing to negotiate on the deal and wanted badly to stay in Philly.
