NIMBY continues to get in the way of so much in this city. You'd think we'd learned our lesson multiple times over already.
I would dare say that almost all of the naysayers on this forum want a new arena. I would say that almost all of the naysayers are willing to try and make it as easy as possible for the Oilers and their owner to do well and make money.

The naysayers are simply saying that the deal as it was, before the missing 100 million was a massively gold plated deal for the Oilers with almost no risk to the team and almost all the risk on the city.

There comes a point where you have to look at a deal and be realistic about the priorities of the city as a whole.
