We thought it might be delayed to begin with, Friendman said we need information by Mid May to make a decision for the Yotes.

i'm getting annoyed with the whole wait wait and more wait. I'm annoyed enough as it is that the arena depends on the NBA folks to play nicely. I already waited 13 years and now it will probably be waiting through another arena plan if the hansen's one expires with no team.

Hmm interesting apparently after a recommendation is made they have to wait a week to have a vote. So delay is nothing more than a league rule.

So...the decision that was supposed to be on the 19th has already been made and this is just a procedural delay for the formal vote....?

Is there something in the NBA schedule that correlates with this?

Apparently yes. No one outside the league knew of the bypass of recommendation one week the vote the next week.

They can take a vote any time they want too but it has to be a no early than a week after the committee makes a recommendation. Tomorrow is the meeting the two committees will meet and probably will make a recommendation on yes to recommend the sale/relocation be approved or no to recommendation that the sale/reloc not be approved. Once that recommendation happens then the vote will happen a week later to allow the full 30 member board of governors to make their decision.

If there are any leaks we'll find out if we are getting the kings or not after tomorrow.

The rule from what i read also says that they HAVE to have a vote no later than 30 days.

So we're looking at the 24th at the earliest, then, and possibly even the 26th or later if a recommendation isn't made tomorrow. Good grief, what a bunch of maroons. How could they not have known this?

We are looking at the 24th as the earliest and May 23 as the latest if a recommendation is made tomorrow.

There was never a vote scheduled for Friday it was assumed by the fans they would have a vote. This makes sense when stern said this may go past April 19th cause he doesn't know when there will be a vote until after the committee's recommendation.

Probably things got mucked up when Sacramento got there act together, otherwise could of possibly had a recommendation last week instead of two presentations for the committee to consider.

All depends on when the committee members are ready to to discuss the last few details and make a recommendation.

*Whistles* Yikes. I had no idea it could take that long. Seeing how this process has gone so far that certainly has to increase the likelihood of the Coyotes going to Quebec City if they relocate after this season. Maybe Hansen's ramping all this up so he can get the Sonics now and then an expansion team in a couple years.

Like i said we could still get the kings but the coyotes can still end up in Quebec city.

Usually BOG follow what the committees recommend but it matters when that vote gets scheduled and this can be easily done by e-mail.

Delay means nothing

If its delayed to mid next week as has been reported it won't mean anything in terms of the Coyotes to Seattle. The big news of the day was the announcement that the Key Arena deal contains an NHL provision. You don't put something like that in there just because. Doesn't mean definitively the Coyotes are on their way to Seattle but it does confirm things are going on behind the scenes and Seattle is in the game at least.

No doubt, and I get that, but if this somehow moves on until late May without a vote (as unlikely as that seems, the owners have the right to take that long if they choose), and PHX misses the playoffs and the NHL agrees it's time to cut the cord, I don't think they'll wait around to see what shakes out in Seattle and will just head on up to QC.

All that said, the news about Key is great and only confirms what many of us have believed all along, that someone/some group is working on this behind the scenes, and they will be ready to strike if given the chance to acquire the Coyotes. Unfortunately we are forced now to wait on the NBA.

(
Mid May would be the latest if the "no later than 30 days after the committee makes a recommendation" rule is actually true. I also thin the NBA has its own deadline where they need to give time for the team to relocate and end of May seems like a stretch.

My money is on next week but that is for a public announcement. The powers that be will know sooner (and assume the NHL will know as well since Bettman and Stern are buddies).

Also think we hear some leaks possibly coming out this week still on where the decision is going to go.

Considering the Thrashers were sold and moved before the Stanley Cup Finals, a delay on the NBA vote means very little.

Yup. IIRC, the entire Thrasher deal came together in less than two weeks. TNSE had not talked to Thrasher ownership or even thought that a deal with ATL could happen that season before mid-May 2011. There's still time right now. We'll see. Quebec is still likely the frontrunner, but I think it would be stupid to count Seattle out just yet.

And if the Coyotes saga has proven anything, it's that the NHL and Gary Bettman are not going to be backed into a corner and be forced by a third party to do something they don't want to do. They'll make the call to relocate the Coyotes to Seattle or Quebec City (or somewhere else) when they're good and ready.

Agreed. It would be great if seattle gets the coyotes but i won't be disappointed if quebec city gets them.

But here's something else to think about, Jawanda, as it pertains to Sprint.

http://money.cnn.com/2013/04/15/tech....html?iid=Lead

Dish Network is attempting to buy them out whole, so if that were to occur, how do you think that would affect all of that? Or is this more an OT thing?

As to my thoughts on Mariners/ROOT, I think this is very interesting, and was myself surprised by it. Curious to see if DirecTV will offer the teams they cover in their other markets (Penguins/Pirates in Pittsburgh or Rockies in Denver or Jazz in SLC) similar deals for their stations in those areas. Any Penguins fans on this board that want to comment on that, please post.

Everyone that lives in the area, do we not agree that we would need a established franchise to really get a foot hold here? I'm worried if there is an expansion team and if they have 3-4 losing seasons to start if long term it will catch on?

sounds like you have doubts about the viability of the seattle market.

More like he'd rather be in a Colorado Avalanche situation (no offence) than a Columbus Blue Jackets.
