It would have been better to give them a year to build the fan base and some momentum, and then introduce parking fees more slowly starting in the second year. After all, it is in the interests of both the owners and the COG for the Coyotes franchise to turn around and become successful within the next few years.

There's really no choice on timing though. The hole in funding for the AMF had to come from somewhere... Curiously there was no $100 million consideration paid for the revenue though.
