Re: NHL Off-season: Seth Jones, it's cause he's black
I love hockey but at the cost of essential services in a market where the game just simply isn't taking like the league hoped it would? They can't find investors who want to finance the team because it's simply a bad investment. I feel for the real hockey fans in Phoenix but that situation is embarassing to the league. Especially when there's some ready made hockey markets (Quebec City, Seattle, heck maybe even Kansas City and their sparkling new arena).
I don't want to say just Phoenix has dumb fans. Here in Pittsburgh, the Steelers are trying to get public funds to put new seats in Heinz Field when the team basically prints money. The government officials need to show some guts and tell the rich owners that we need libraries, spend your own money.
Is it bright where you are? Have the people changed?
