We all sat patiently as the Glendale city council did their business that fateful Tuesday. Finally as we had our opportunity to speak, our voices were heard loud and clear. At the same time you had a few aging angry men who approached the mic to tell the city council their frustration with the Coyotes and the spending of the city. These same few would once again be a faint voice in the mist of a loud overpowering howl. Yet these pesky few would most likely once again hit the signature trail in an effort to push the matter to a referendum which could put all future of the franchise to a vote at a later date. Phoenix Coyotes fans have had enough delay of what they hope will be some stability and security moving forward. Thursday was the last opportunity for anyone to turn in over 6,000 signatures needed to push fans hopes back further.
When the deadline came and went, no one stepped forward. The evil empire had been defeated. Like a shutout against the Red Wings, we expected something wicked to rear it’s ugly head. Indeed a shutout win for the Coyotes and their fans. Now Greg Jamison has nothing but clear sailing to the finish line. He will need to handle the funds and get the deal with the league finalized. There really are no excuses to not get this deal done. Any investors on the fence regarding anyone blocking the deal, that just isn’t the case anymore. Goldwater Institute got too much egg on their faces to even whimper in the end. Jones and his Glendale Angry Few committee also were no where to be found in the end.
Everybody HOWL! Sound the horn. The PHOENIX COYOTES appear to be here to stay.
