Many here think a move is needed because Glendale shouldn't have to pay $15M a year for the team to stay. You are in Surprise, so that doesn't affect you. It's not a matter of "who deserves a team." Fan bases could argue that forever. But, no small city can afford to build an arena and then pay those kinds of millions every year, too.
Wrong again. Glendale will pay over 6 million a year for an empty arena. Westgate will be crushed by losing it's anchor tenant. Glendale can claim they lose 15 million a year but that figure does NOT include taxes gained and tenants brought at Westgate. IMO Glendale is all in with the Coyotes, Westgate, and it's spring training home at Camelback.Pulling out cannot be an option or too much will be lost. Glendale being a small city is of little concern. It is surrounded by Phoenix, Peoria, Avondale, Surprise, Sun City, and Goodyear. A casino is being built by the Tohono O'odham Nation nearby as well as the new Tanger Outlets.
