The timing is also curious, as I believe thats American Thanksgiving is it not? A time when people have a lot of other things on their minds, a short break, time spent with family, travel. So lets say they put it on the Agenda on Friday the 23rd, or leave it late & release it on Monday the 26th, no warning, no time for people to rally, then hammer it through on the Tuesday night. I dont know what recourse the citizens nor the incoming Mayor & Council members might have.

I believe the Coyotes can succeed in Glendale, however, I dont believe the City of Glendale can survive under the terms of the Jamison agreement even with the approved tax increase.
Im not sure how they can survive in Arizona KIllion. About 15 years in the hole doesnt work, even with major changes from new CBA and/or ownership. Unless someone is willing to loose money every year, its not going to happen I dont think.
