This is awesome. And obviously the answer to Glendale's prayers. Why waste all this time trying to approve a $320 million AMF? Do it the Beasley way - just reduce it to a series of invoices for one day's worth of arena management fees. One year at $15 million is only $41,095.89 per day, well under the $50,000 threshold. The city council doesn't even need to approve it!!!
