Okay, I'll call bull**** on that one. Prove to us that Montreal is top three in revenues. I see that as an impossibiity based on the money generated for some of the US teams in their cable deals, something Canadian teams don't get a similar kick at. Add to that the price structure in a lot of the big market teams in the US make their gate receipts massive. I just cannot see where Montreal is in the top three for revenues.
Also, if the owner has such deep pockets, why the handout? Doesn't make sense. Especially with Gillet's background.
