Could you clarify that bolded part? You have an extra word in there. That sentence could mean completely different things depending on what you got wrong? Helping out with the Coyotes or helping without the Coyotes?

Either way, they should have done this years ago. Glendale Arena goes dark in a couple of months. They should have had their own people booking shows and taking care of arena management long ago instead of letting the arena wallow into irrelevance at the hands of the NHL. They could have hard numbers on how many shows can be booked at what kinds of profit levels and see the effects on the surrounding businesses. They would know how much it costs definitively in that short term instead of blindly trying to figure out how many hundreds of millions to give out as a subsidy. They would've had actual tax revenue coming in on the events they could've booked and from the extra business generated at all the satellite businesses. They would know just how dependent on the Coyotes they really are. Instead, they are entirely behind the 8 ball with no win scenarios on every side. This is the blind leading the deaf listening to the mute. So much incompetence to go around.
