I agree that it's much better that JIG.
However, what it does not factor is the FEAR-MONGERING about how Westgate dies without the hockey team.
I saw somewhere a description that said, roughly, 500K people come the games, 2M to Westgate. Now, we know that not all the hockey patrons go to Westgate, but even with that assumption, you have a huge number of people at Westgate with no hockey team, and the assumption the Arena is totally idle all those dates.
So, the real deal is:
Sherwood went rogue, because he can't stand the idea of the team leaving. He therefore arranged the serial meetings, in which Knaack, Chavira, and Martinez were convinced that "hockey must be saved, or Westgate dies."
After that, all presentations are skewed to show "Arena with hockeyteam" vs "Arena with no events but we still pay 6M/yr anyway."
Just how dead would the area be?
After all as Billy Crystal as "Miracle Max said in "The Princess Bride", there's dead and mostly dead.
Carry on, I enjoy the wild speculation!
