  11. 2PM update, looks like they are ready to deal Glendale's move to consider ending its agreement with the Arizona Coyotes took another turn Wednesday morning with a statement by the city saying it's open to renegotiating a better deal for taxpayers. The Glendale City Council is scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. this evening at City Hall to end a 15-year, $225 million agreement with the team to lease Gila River Arena and manage the facility. That meeting, announced late Tuesday afternoon, was the latest in a long history of turmoil for the Coyotes in Glendale. The city issued this statement this morning: "The City Council has scheduled a discussion and possible vote regarding Glendale's contract with the Arizona Coyotes. Discussions and negotiations regarding the contract have been ongoing for months. Specifically, the City is open to a resolution but it must be one that provides certainty and fairness to both parties, especially the taxpayers. The Council has agreed to stand for transparency and the highest standards of ethics for any future agreement with the Coyotes."

  13. Of course it is..... I guess a Coors Light pushcart will suffice. I really hope this whole thing doesn't turn out sh***y. http://www.hartfordbusiness.com/article/20150603/NEWS01/150609961/1002
  14. They should also get the Elks building for continuity: https://www.google.com/maps/@41.7635035,-72.6720623,21z
