I agreed that Mandel was to blame and I added Katz too. He has not been a great negotiator through this process. Barely shows his face but has a lot of stipulations and even wanted the city to break a bylaw regarding guaranteed leases in Katz's office buildings. I don't have a clue where Mandel got the idea he was getting the money from the govt, he is looking to leave a legacy and the arena is it. He is proposing a fountain right outside each entrance for people to throw change into them so they can help fund the arena. The fountains will be called the Mandel Funnels
