The fans are from all over the place, the majority of at least hf members from Scottsdale and environs. They dont really have a voice in whatever the COG does try-on, cant show their support or not at the polls. If ever there was a case for Amalgamation, surely this is it, the potential loss of a sports team affecting the entire region, east and west, the City of Phoenix itself.
I argue instead they suffer none of the ramifications and consequences of the decisions of the city for them to enjoy their entertainment. Glendale could make a deal to keep the team, the city could go to hellinahandbasket due to municipal bankruptcy, and people living in Scottsdale suffer zero from said situation. They're like the people arguing for something to exist and they don't have any risk if it goes belly up.
