So, if I am to understand this.....

The CoG is actually claiming that 500,000 hockey fans are going to generate the same amount of revenue for the city as 5,000,000 shoppers??? Sorry, not buying it. I can buy the Tanger Mall generating $2.5M, but if the Coyotes only get 1/10 of the Mall traffic, they are generating a lot less one would assume than $2.46M the CoG is claiming.

Someone correct me in the errors of my ways.
Two questions :

1) Where did you learn your math ? If you went to Clarkonomics school you would know your numbers are wrong, very

2) Why are you pointing the obvious ? You are not to know that could turn out ugly for the Coyotes remaining in Arizona, you meanie
