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?
Who's to say that a competent Arena Manager wouldn't facilitate enough bookings to minimize (hopefully sustain) the impact.

Apparently having one does too.

You really need to stop hangin' with the BeavisPAC

Ellman had a case of "Eyes bigger than the stomach" with this whole thing. Too much, too soon and the timing was unfortunate you could say.

Speaking of Ellman, I just remembered that I read an article some time ago that one of the reasons why Scottsdale City Council balked at Ellman's plan was there was an intent clause that he was going to flip it in 2013? I'll do my best later to recall where I read it an post it accordingly.
