Can someone clarify why Skeete projects that General Fund expenditures will be substantially higher with No Team, even after the arena management costs are considered?
These peoples rejected reality a while ago. Otherwise they would have told Bettman where he can shove his team three years ago when he started asking for 25 million a year! Hell 50 million is enough to wipe a lot of the remaining debt on the freaking building. I keep coming back to gambler mentality to explain the whole psycosis. A gambler on a bad streak will throw good money at bad bets in the hope that his luck will turn so he can cover his previous loss. That how you lose a house and that how you bankrupt a city.
