What you are forgetting here is the Phantoms and the owners (Brooks Brothers) have already committed to Allentown to relocate the Phantoms in time for the 13-14 season. As we speak the arena is being built and will hold if I am correct, 8000. All litigation has ceased on the project and clear sailing for the project to be completed. So the Flyers affiliate will be located near them, likewise the Phillies AAA affiliate is located in Allentown (the Ironpigs).
