He is told by the CoG to go away and that they will never give a handout to the owner of the Coyotes. We all know what came next..... So 4 years later, the same CoG now votes to give an unknown entity ~$15M/yr.

If the CoG had just given Moyes what he wanted 4 years ago, there is a very good chance nothing that has gone on over the last 4 years would have ever happened.

But then again, the entertainment value has been priceless.
There is the possibility that Moyes could have asked for another $5 - $7 mm per year...
