Said like it is! Gramps is nothing more than a shell game foisted upon this franchise by his puppeteer GB. Delusions of grandeur and putrid gullibility have led so many to actually believe that GJ is really a buyer. I have to ask , what has he said or done for any logical thinking human being to conclude anything? Honestly the last time we heard from this fraudster, in any meaningful way, was many months ago and even then his message and commitment was sketchy at the very best. Those who have used this thread to ask thew simple question of investor suitability are on the right track. To blindly hand over $320MM to a man who has yet to show anyone his or his investors balance sheets is reckless fiduciary disregard for the constituencies who elected them. All to say, GJ may see a lease from the Council but the NHL will never see the money. The last franchise that sold and had perhaps stronger economic fundamentals than PHX was TB for $110MM! Why on earth would anyone pay $170MM for something of lesser value? The answer: THEY WOULDN`T!!!!!!!
