Belkin's being bought out.

Hopefully things will start looking up from an ownership prospective.

Good! That means it will be easier to bring in investors now. It also stabilizes the financial outlook of the organization.

Sorry to play Debbie Downer here, but Phil Foley (whoever that is) doesn't give a reason to back up his title other than saying:

Quote:
They told reporters after news that a settlement had been agreed to with Belkin that “no other changes” concerning the relocation of the hockey team were planned.
Doesn't seem rock solid to me.

But nothing. Stop with the Debbie Downer stuff.

We have no reason to believe the relocation of the Thrashers is imminent. None. Zip. Zero. Zilch.

By no means do I think relocation is imminent. I think they'll utimitly stay. I am just saying that, until an Atlanta based investor/owner steps in, all we have to go on is Levenson's quotes.

Bruce Levenson made some curious comments during half time of the Hawks game last night.

Among other things, he said that he was "proud" of what Ownership has done with the Thrashers. This, despite the fact that we have never won a playoff game, have near the worst attendance in the league, and have a league low payroll.

I do not understand what he is proud of?

Levenson's full comments can be read here: http://www.ajc.com/sports/hawks-thra...up-785848.html
