Perhaps, it's not that the league has no serious intentions to sell locally, it's they know there is no serious buyer willing to take the team off their hands from day one. Well, at least not without a large 'equity package' from the city.
With every prospective buyer seeming to look for so much $$$ from the city. Perhaps, it's done with the intent for the city to say no. With the last council approving everything the league and/or buyer wants, this saga will go on and on.
Curious to see what happens with this council once the Yotes season ends and it's time for the league to ramp up the pressure. Wil this council cave and this goes on or does this saga come to a merciful end.
