They're not mocking fans, they're mocking Fallar. He's a human self-parody, an escapee from a Monty Python sketch. One just has to quote him and the joke writes itself.

With Lieberman retired and Clark defeated, all we have left is Fallar who so graciously strings himself up pinata style and hands us the bat...

Beasley worked for the council..... they hired him and they had the power to fire him..... and she was the head of that council. Remember that the council had dozens upon dozens of closed door meetings with the city manager over the past three years. There were plenty of opportunities for her to question Beasley on the status of negotiations, so if she wasn't aware of what Beasley was doing then it was her own fault.
That's exactly what I wrote, TL. Scruggs had been a major supporter. The question is, what turned her against Beasley and the Jamison deal? Reading between the lines, her major public complaints have been Beasley's secretive work, his refusal to provide information on the real costs of managing the arena, and Jamison's refusal to communicate with her. In addition to that, she seems to have become particularly sensitive to cutting jobs and services as the financial crisis settled in and forced Glendale to choose budget priorities. Maybe there were other issues as well, but something turned her from "pro" to "anti-". In any case, it is one of the more interesting sub-plots to the saga. Why did Scruggs turn?

You know, I should have been collecting some of the salient points here from the Glendale saga and used that as the basis for my November novel as part of NaNoWriMo. There's a gripping municipal thriller here.

Interesting to read the new complexion of council and the tax passing. Why, if the Yotes leave and the tax stays, Glendale *might* be able to step back from the brink of bankruptcy!

The audit said staff did not follow rules and regulations, or keep the Board of Trustees, which oversees the fund, informed about the transfers. However, the audit noted the council was told about one transfer before it happened and others afterward.

The board, which is chaired by Councilwoman Joyce Clark, was presented with the audit in early October.

Clark said the board should have been better informed, according to a transcript its Oct. 4 meeting.

Clark at one point said the audit was nitpicky. But at other points, she scolded staff for the lack of information sharing. "Shame on you," she said.

The councilwoman did not respond to The Republic's requests for further comment.
Maybe you've never seen an actual hit piece?

Here's a few things to look for:
1) The subject is not contacted for comment
2) Other sources are contacted, they say negative things about the subject
3) It's authored by a features writer, not the city beat reporter
4) It embellishes events disproprotionately
5) It includes a hit, you know, something injurious

So which part of the article, oh excuse me, which part of the "hit piece", exactly, is inaccurate and incomplete? Seems like standard reporting of another Glendale blunder from here. Perhaps the fringe needs to invent an evil plot de jour to help them cope with the battering Clark took at the polls?

I assume Ms. Clark defines "trolls" as anyone who disagrees with her positions on political issues.

Especially hispanics.

^ OOOOO calling Hispanics trolls isn't very nice I thought insulting hispanics wasn't allowed here? Or does that only apply to Coyotes fans?

I'm not referring to hispanics as trolls.

I'm merely extrapolating from Ms. Clark's track record with how she perceives hispanics, and anyone who opposes her political views.

If I don't know you, you are GONE. I mistakenly block you sent an email and I will unblock.

Joyce Clark ‏@clarkjv
Trust me....unfiltered it will be. Catch me on Roc and Manuch this afternoon at 3:15 pm

This might actually be interesting....or good for a chuckle... to hear what she has to say. I suspect it will be a "blame everyone else" kind of discussion.

Haha she is a piece of work, the only person she has to blame for her defeat was because she put her foot in her mouth in insulting Chavarez.

A smart business person she is not.

No doubt Ms. Clark's take on her defeat will be that she's the only person Not to blame, unless it's for being too honest and trusting, while not succeeding at fighting back the conspiracies against her.

She's right. It was an elaborate work pulled off by a shadowy syndicate that is determined to destroy the Phoenix Coyotes. We know it includes the evil Canadian media, Goldwater, local hit pieces, a bridge burning backstabbing mayor, collusion by attorney general and judges, plus the phantom menace of the Phoenix Monarch Group.

This is definitely not just the logical turnover of one small town council after they approved a series of disastrous financial decisions the decimated the budget. It's much bigger than that, so put down Occum's Razor before you cut yourself. This is a multi-level, international conspiracy. And everyone is in on it. The fate of the Coyotes is a critical issue for everyone on the entire planet. They are not just a struggling entertainment business in an untenable market.

I made a call so we can get to the bottom of this once and for all. My friends are on the way. Look:
