We might see a flurry of legal and political challenges that will tie things up indefinitely. The first delay will likely be a petition to put the deal to a referendum. If that is successful, then the deal will be in limbo until the referendum. Meanwhile, I don't think that a legal challenge based on the gift clause is unlikely.

Jamison and the NHL had their opportunity to push a deal like this through 10 or 12 months ago. But because of the delays in lining up investors I think that chance has passed. They either have to come up with a real compromise for Glendale or I think that a local deal won't be completed.
how can a local deal be voted on by the BOG, if no league business can be conducted until a CBA is completed, Whileeee, you forgot the initial presser introducing GJ, ALL He was Told, was present a lease to COG, Which is exactly where we are.... tht's why this is on hold....
