Who Needs Canadian Hockey Fans?
"The Nashville Predators announced Wednesday that Craig Leipold has signed a letter of intent to sell the team to a group of local investors for nearly $200 million."
More on that here.
This is the second letter that Leipold signed, and he is a fool with misplaced loyalties. He ditched the deal he struck with the creator of the crackberry when Basille wanted to move the team to *gasp* Canada!!!!!!!!!
How dare someone want to move a professional hockey franchise to a geographical area where the support would be virtually limitless, where tickets are passed down from fathers to sons and most games sell out! Instead the group that Leipold is selling to has pledged to keep the Preds in the Music City and thus pledged to lose millions a year. While some of it is their money to lose, but the league does revenue share so the Preds will be a money pit that successful teams dump hard earned cash into.
I don't know about you but there is no way I am going to take a winter hockey vacation to Nashville of all places. Hmm, let's see, what other sights are there? Ooo, Graceland, the Grand Ole Oprey, yee haw! I'm a hockey fan, you can't get my fat ass on a mechanical bull.
This is just another move by puppetmaster Gary to save face as he swore up and down that he was dedicated to the 30 teams the league had. He also wants as many teams in America as possible so you can be sure if it was Edmonton looking to move to Houston he would not block the move and hail it as a victory. Idiot.
