Mayor Scruggs (who is feeling better, thankfully) has given the remaining speakers 4 minutes each. That doesn't give GWI much time to shred them...

25 citizens have signed up to address the Council in four-minute segments. That's 100 minutes!

Surely the 37th thread deserves some kind of Kevin Smith reference?

Dude? Taking two steps back to take a step forward still leaves you a step back.

Some fat non-Glendale resident talking about how much he spends, $45, on food at Coyote games.

It's like Burmistrov wearing an 8 & 2/3rds jersey. Bless his heart, but he's tiny.

Diehard Yotes fan states "fanbase is toast" because of how long this uncertainty has dragged on. She just wants to know whether they are going or staying ASAP.

Seems appropriate for the NHL's Arizona expansion, as do other lesser used idioms.

You have to spend money to spend even more money.

A penny saved is a penny that goes to the Coyotes.

Cash in hand is better than two parking lots in the bush.

$45 on food? Not including ticket? Good thing the arena is half empty, I'd hate to sit next to him. Helllooo Newman!

This is exactly the truth. The fanbase is at a tipping point. Nobody wants this ******** to drag on another year without an owner. With Bryz, Yandle and other important FAs, this cannot go on even for another month.

Why pay $45 bucks to eat greasy fast food?

Never been a fan of concessions. I usually eat before I leave for games. Drinks are fine, fries, stretching it, but burgers 'n stuff, no thanks.

I like PHX as a town, I think eating @ sports events in general are bad.

Oh my goodness, mom and pop will be affected, fire and police will be affected, crime will skyrocket like in Pontiac...

Hang onto them Yotes, Glendale! Just look at how Winnipeg collapsed after losing the Jets...

I agree, that is the most terrible part. Even for the most rabid fan, there has got be a breaking point where they just say F it.
