The lie that GB has perpetuated over the past few years with his surrogate parade of clowns will no longer be acceptable. Not to mention his cast of characters to fill the leading role will be greatly diminished. Do the fans and/or the community completely dump the concept of support in the final year? nothing would please me more than to see GB scramble in the next few weeks for anew location, determine no site is ready yet and have to bite the NHL`s bullet for one more year. Let the fans squash the ATP and watch GB and the BOG take it big time in the shorts! A fitting end for a complete jerk of a human being!

CF your comments above are spot on! the idea that this Franchise has business viability is a complete pipe dream, perpetuated by those who cant bear the thought that just maybe they are dead wrong!

The problem has always been the massive revenue disparity, which was then further exacerbated by the forced spending that the cap/HRR share system brought about.
