It's not about support to the Flames and the league. It's about revenue. The longer the Flames are in the Saddledome, the further down the list they will drop in terms of revenue. The Flames TV deal is not that impressive, without a larger lower bowl and a new level of suites they can't gain the additional revenues to bring them back into the top 10 in revenue. That said, I wouldn't be shocked if both Nenshi and the Flames became more reasonable now that the election is over.
