Winnipeg Free Press: Tempest in an Arizona teapot. Sometimes the bigger story is what isn’t said.
TSN: Senator McCain wants deal to keep Coyotes in Glendale. Can’t believe how much energy he is expending on this Coyotes deal. People are always demanding to see Goldwater’s contributor’s but I’d be curious to see who has been giving to Senator McCain lately.
Globe & Mail: Goldwater institute, Coyotes buyer in stalemate. There have been times I was convinced that GWI would seek a compromise but they continue to stick to their guns. While some have labeled them zealots, I guess they have the conviction to take a stand and not waffle because they’re told to.
Winnipeg Free Press: After work with Hulsizer, Goldwater still plans court challenge on sale of Coyotes. Hush, hush negotiations between GWI & prospective Coyotes owner Matthew Hulsizer, but it appears that they couldn’t overcome the impasse.
Winnipeg Sun: Goldwater still opposes Coyotes sale. I wonder if, when Hulsizer was laying out his plan, he said, “listen Olsen, I’m going to make this brain dead simple for you”….
Arizona Capital Times (registration required): Olsen: There’s an ‘anti-Goldwater campaign’. No question the mud slinging has been fierce, but the GWI has equated itself quite well.
NY Daily News: Yankee Stadium parking garages in financial hot water as spots sit empty even on game days. Might want to alert someone in Glendale that sometimes the projections don’t hit their targets.
The Province: Ex-Thrasher Ray Ferraro pulls no punches on the mess in Atlanta. He certainly doesn’t mince his words.
