COG to vote on revised lease 11/27 (UPD: approved)

http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/n...-new-308m.html

New deal is $308m

Quote:
The council voted 4-2 last week to move forward with the arena plan.
The new deal replaces a previous $300 million arena deal between Glendale and Jamison. That deal was never finalized by the city. Interim city manager Horatio Skeete worked out the new deal with Jamison but then said at last week’s preliminary vote that he did not endorse the deal because of its costs to the city, including prompting the need for worker layoffs.
...
They worry that if a deal isn’t done the Coyotes will end up leaving the Phoenix market, hurting the city-owned arena and Westgate Entertainment District.

I diagree for couple reasons 1. Seattle is still a long way off from putting shovel in the ground for there new arena so in my opinion seattle is not even an option right now & that is why Hamilton & Quebec City are the only options right now to move the coyotes too . 2. With Global Spectrum\Live nation taken over running Copps Coliseum in the spring & with there main goal being bringing an NHL. team to Hamilton & with global spectrum being in the NHL. inner circle I say there will be an NHL. team in Hamilton within the next 5 years .

While I agree with what you say I think your timeline is off. It'll be 5-10 years, imo.

I agree and I think it's why the Bulldogs are being pushed out of Copps: GS will have an OHL team and an NHL play in "their" arena, but the city won't support the AHL, too.

Didn't Shruggs (mayor) wanted to impose a deadline somewhere in January for the purchase for the deal to hold ?

This whole coyotes fiasco is going to continue to drag on because The goldwater institute is going to be all over this do to the fact that taxpayers are going to be the ones flipping the bill to prop up a team that no one wants & you can bet your bottom dollar that if there is a referendum on this if won't go in the coyotes favour & they will move to ethier Quebec City or Hamilton in time for the 2013\2014 season .

Mayor-elect not happy new lease approved: “I’m not overly happy with the decision made, but we’ll take that decision and run with it the best we can.”

Even if this deal with jamison gose through I don't see the coyotes staying in Arizona for no more than 3 years & I am being generous because I don't think the coyotes will survive the lockout & will move after next season . Also I see GWI. turnning its ugly head again & will try to force an injunction on the city of Glendale to stop this lease agreement that Jamison made with glendale so they can petition for a referendum on this lease agreement . Because this new lease agreement is going to use taxpayer dollars to help prop up the coyotes which means taxes will go up & in a republican state it just won't fly so if there is referendum it is likely not to go in the coyotes favour .

From the article:

Some question whether the Coyotes can ever be profitable.

“With some hard work and some luck, that’s where we want to be,” he said.
Seriously? His business plan is to make the team profitable with luck? How did he get investors?

From the article:

Purchasing the arena, which the city spent $180 million to open in 2003, could rid Glendale of that debt payment.

It’s unclear whether it would end the arena-management fee the city pledged, averaging $15 million annually the next 20 years.

Interim City Manager Horatio Skeete said that would have to be negotiated.
What?

Okay. In all seriousness, how can anyone possibly believe this deal is remotely positive based on all the knowledge (or lack thereof) we have up to this point? I know that most pro-Coyotes people refuse to take their rose-colored glasses off, but even still, shades of reality must filter through occasionally, even to the biggest homers out there.

This deal is such a gigantic fail and waste of Glendale's money. If this is the best deal people can come up with the prop up NHL hockey in the desert, then it's pretty apparent that there is no real market for professional hockey in Arizona. And after 16 years of mega-money losses, there never will be.

interesting video of jamison and perhaps indicative of deceit ...

looking up and to the left (from the viewer's perspective, the subject's right) is the standard microexpression indicator of deeply accessing the creative side of the brain and thus 'lying'. looking up to the other side (our right, their left) is indicative of accessing memory, or 'recalling' the truth.

look at 1:17 and again at 1:19, just prior to him stating "and now I think we have the opportunity to cut the deal with the NHL and try to finish this". he seems to be accessing the creative side of his brain, not the factual side, and thus making things up .. lying.

if i were a betting man, i'd say he does NOT think he has an opportunity to cut the deal with the NHL and finish this.

i'd bet he's either lying, or he is so uncertain of his investors that he is not at all confident that he will finish this deal and does not consider it a fact.
