Maybe a little understanding for the exhuberance of Phoenix fans who want to keep their team and Quebec fans who want to get one would make the discussion go a little smoother. I understand both, but for me it comes down to what MNNumbers says. The city just can't afford it. They're beyond where it hurts to come up with the money; the money just doesn't exist. It's madness for governments (and individuals) to keep running up unpayble debts and think someone else will pay them off. It just doesn't work in the real world. Sorry for Phoenix fans who face losing something they love, but that's the reality.
