You know why we say "hockey works in Dallas, but it doesn't in ATL, PHX and FLA" ? Because Dallas was managed well, won, and built a fan base. People say hockey "failed" in ATL and PHX because the owners didn't care/weren't smart enough to make make it work. In Florida, people say it's "failing" because the owners care enough to try (unlike PHX/ATL) but haven't really won much.
You know where hockey works? Everywhere. Cause hockey is awesome. You know where hockey "fails"? Where owners mismanage franchise and fail to create fans.
Careful there, you're talking to
a hockey fan
, who knows a bit more about how and where these things work.
