It does not help when some nieve mod posts said tweet. They did talk about it on their show but said it was just some random guy about 30 minutes later.

The guy on Twitter that started this last page of comments said Bettman confirmed it on his radio show. I didn't know he had one.

The comments at the end speaks for the skeptics 'may just be playing games'.

I guess we'll find out as early as tomorrow if Mr. Jamison will speak for the masses.

Of course, I think I expect too much. Someone could buy the team and move them to Mars and I suspect he'd still say he thinks he can close the deal.

Although Jamison was getting awfully close with that young Coyote's fan in the pictures. Maybe being close to buying an NHL team is helping his dating life.

Is Jamison going to bring out that little kid who captured the hearts of the Glendale City Council back earlier in this saga to convince the new council to give him an extension, or is that little kid now middle-aged, having lost that cuteness factor in gobs of ear hair, nose hair, a slouching posture, and a 4 o'clock shadow given how long this saga has gone on?

Can't really blame them. This has gone on so long with so many potential buyers coming along with so many Glendale votes to 'save the Coyotes'.

Sounds like they're echoing what so many of us would really like to see.....closure. Perhaps in about 50 hours but one can only dream

The "one issue" that is holding up the sale is the fact that Jamison doesn't have the money.

I mean, theoretically, I could say the same thing. The one thing that is holding up the sale of the Coyotes to me is that I don't have the money.

Anyone want to chip in?

Yep. On XM Radio, an hour once a week hosted by former player Bill Clement. They actually rotate the guests, Colin Campbell, Bill Daly or Gary Bettman... hockeytalk, spinning a few of their favourite discs.... Gary Glitters Rockn'Roll Parts1&2... Europes' Final Countdown.... arena rock crapioca.

So 21-22 years ago Jason Patric acted in a movie called Rush about drugs. The character he played was named James Raynor

So like

what a joke

It must be true though I saw it on the internet and the internet can't lie

I guess you can't call it catfishing when a girl (or guy, whatever it is) pretends to be something he/she is not to entice hockey fans into accepting he/she's baloney but it is pretty reminiscent of catfishing lmao...

too funny.

I have a source who said he has a full scale map of the United States and he spent last summer and the lockout folding it. I think he's on twitter and has 39,949 followers.

Here is the tweet, he says the justification to an emergency vote is his gf said they stayed late and went through a late lunch.....

Wow, that's the best they can do. At least Roc and Munch were smart enough not to buy it.

^^^^^

Secret emergency BOG meeting... Hmmmmmm.... Could mean anything.

- they have agreed to sell the team at a huge discount to help Jamison out
- they have agreed to sell at the asking price
- they have agreed to sell to someone in QC because Jamison is walking
- they have found out a major problem in the CBA which means the CBA is invalid and we are playing without one
-etc.

Could mean anything.
Just have to wait for the announcement.

I dont believe so, and I doubt if he did any during
the Lockout. Talk about Heat Calls from the fans.

Nope, Glendale's in the Mountain Time Zone so the dude gets two hours more than that. And he might just need it.
