Hearing it's stupid to have a few people lose jobs / millionaires. Maybe the dumbest comment of all today. Sure 4 policemen and I believe a librarian will not be able to have FULL TIME work but how can you compare that to all the front office, arena workers, concession, cleaning crew, restaurant workers, etc etc ETC that will be out of work if they leave? How about all the sports shops that will drop that whole revenue line? Losing a major sport would cripple Glendale. They may sell to Peoria if that happens.

Also Glendale will get a % of naming rights and if Jamison and his group want to purchase the Arena they will recoup the $180 million spent to build the arena. #1 is to secure ownership. #2 is to recapture STH and sponsors lost to Moyes and his lunacy. #3 is to get Glendale turning a profit again.

Glendale 2012-13 Budget:

staffing has been reduced by 273 FTEs, an 18% reduction from the FY 2009 peak staffing level of 1,501 FTEs, to 1,228 FTEs.
Bet $25m/yr could've saved a few of those jobs. But who's counting.
