Isn't it extremely odd that a team which had $73 million per season in player expenses against $103 mil in revenue before the lockout, now can't make money when their revenue is $97 million and the new CBA has reduced player expenses to $54 million?

It's also interesting how the Stars are "losing money" (when Forbes has the Stars making $10-14 million each year since the new CBA) beginning in the exact same time as Hicks taking on $435 million in debt when he purchased Liverpool FC.

Forgive me for being skeptical, but this sounds like when the MLB was saying that all their clubs were losing money back in the late 90s.

I don't doubt Hicks is losing money, but I'm nearly positive he's not losing it on the Stars other than through potential creative accounting and paying bills to himself.

We're not losing money. Well. We're not making as much as Hicks wants considering he's probably paying the Ambassador of Fun too much money.
