    SPECULATION: They ran out of cupcakes and voted 4-3 to order some from Darcy without seeking competitive bids.

    Yes. The Mayor attempted to solve a quadratic equation while Phil Lieberman sang Marty Robbins songs to a small child in a Coyotes sweater.

    I heard Scruggs and Lieberman got up on the chamber table and performed a duet of "Some Velvet Morning".

    To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
    Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
    To the last syllable of recorded time;
    And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
    The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
    Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
    That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
    And then is heard no more. It is a tale
    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
    Signifying nothing.

    Glendale is far from bankruptcy, despite its debt load. I find it funny that a person from California is making such a comment.

    Let's see from reviewing the comments on the AZcentral site, it would appear that the Glendale city council are making "sound" financial decisions. Lost money hosting the super bowl, hired lawyers to fight the casino, lawyers to review the AZ gift clause, $25M to the NHL and $180M for an Arena. The city has laid off workers and are not investing in libraries; perhaps other infrastructure is not being attended to. If anything, I know how easy it is for politicians to bankrupt a county and from the looks of it, Glendale is shuffling the chairs on the Titanic!

    $4M+ in attorney and consultant fees.

    Quite the gravy train - no wonder things move like pond water.

    Surprised to see so many people at AZ hammering council now. Always seemed to be a fair number of Yotes diehards posting there. Now everyone seems to be negative.

    OT but that argument with the tribe is ludicrous. Okay, we deannexd the land, but we didn't mean to or didn't have the authority to do that, so can we please still keep the natives out? LOL amazed that argument got as far as it did.

    Within the list are the legal firms from which COG has probably received positive opinions of their Gift Clause position:


    Here is another name that came up, indicating that COG did some degree of due diligence in regards to arenas:

    Also listed is Beacon Sports Capital Partners (Alan Leventhal), who were recommended by IFG (Michael Reinsdorf) to the COG to assess the arena. That report wound up on the desk of John Kaites (Jerry Reinsdorfs front man) a full month before Jerry Moyes filed for BK. Clearly, both Beacon & IFG et al had been working for some months prior to May 2009 on the COG's dime, so really this disclosure of the app. 4.75M over 2.5yrs is hardly surprising. It is what it is.

    Suprised there is no new news to report on today's meeting. Then again, they probably just said "well, we paid the NHL $25 million that we agreed to" and that's all it really was.

    Glendale waterbill news letter?

    'the funny thing is the 1st year the arena opened, hockey went on strike and in the newsletter you get with your waterbill, scruggs gleefully declared, we are making more on the arena without hockey.'

    found this on AZ central , anyone else remeber this newsletter or if we can get a copy posted here?

    How do you lose money hosting the Super Bowl? Maybe they meant they literally lost money, due to having a two-year old daughter who likes to shove things between the sofa cushions, place things into the front-loader washer, and hide things in the wastepaper basket...

    Still, the study found that just 5 percent of an estimated 123,500 out-of-town visitors stayed in Glendale and not yet enough retail and entertainment options existed to satisfy demand.
