So they cancel support for something that draws about as many fans as the Yotes but for a lot less money......

•David Pagnotta via twitter: Part of the Glendale City Council vote: “3. (My fav) The Arena Manager will pay the city $60,000 for every game not played during the season caused by a lock out or player’s strike.”
The lockout should hasten his purchasing of the team. If the season is lost, he pays about $2.7 mil to the city but gets to pocket a cool net of what, about $7 mil for doing nothing except buying the team.

Exactly because if he did, he would buy it to make sure he gets the big payday from the city.
