Wow... the bitchslap from Norma Alvarez... "Yah...well... you voted yes" on the $25m for the second year
Daly and Bettman continue to play these clowns. They are completely overmatched, and the NHL has bilked them out of $20m in escrow (with $5m more committed) that they'll likely only get back if the team is moved. In-credible.
Mayor Elaine Scruggs: What happened is we voted here 5-2 to put, to put aside $25 million knowing that we only had $20 million not $25 million. The document that created the mechanism to do that never came to us.
This is unbelievable to me. They gave the NHL $20m with a commitment to $25m sight unseen
because Bill Daly said they were close to a deal.
After reading the whole thing, it appears Norma Alvarez is the only person there interested in doing her job as being a representative in the best interests of her constituents. The rest of them... yikes.
edit: in the actual thread, the amount of people who feel sorry for Glendale is staggering. Glendale, just like every city people like Jeff Loria/Bettman/Daly has dealt with, got caught up in the allure of sports and were dumb enough to fall for the 90th percentile projections of "revitalization" and "growth" presented to them by team/league reps. The whole thing reads like a city council meeting from Tom Goes to the Mayor
