Should the Preds stay in Nashville?
Tue, August 14, 2007

A local group trying to keep the Predators in Nashville is on the verge of signing a letter of intent.

Owner Craig Leipold has been working with a group of local investors to finalize a bid for the team since flying to New York on July 18 for a meeting with NHL officials.

Leipold has been trying to sell his franchise because he said he has lost $70 million since being awarded the team in June 1997.

This might mean that the team is not moving anywhere for now. Is this good news for the NHL?

Preds staying, for now

Can you read at all wayne ? Mr.Basillie's lawyer was on prime time sports with Bob McGown thats how I know.

When Mr.Roddier I belive is the lawyers name was on prime time he brought Mr.Basillie's copy of the NHL By-Laws and read from it word for word. But you being the know it all sports info boy I guess you know more than Mr.Basillie's lawyer LMFAO.

You are sad and pathic wayne and keep making yourself look like the goof you truly are!!!

wayne you clown Basillie doesnt need corporate sponsorship! The man is a billionaire! He has told the NHL he wouldn't take any money from them in regards to the revenue sharing plan because he doesnt need it!

About a month or 6 weeks ago Mr.Basillie made over $ 385 million in 1 day!

I have been to Buffalo many times to see Sabre and Bills games.

Who cares what Toronto thinks, they dont own the southern ontario market and never will! They would lose alot of fans when Mr. Basillie gets his team which is only a matter of time.

Go play with your map lil boy and keep using your crayons to draw your circles LMFAO.

Let me spout off more about the so called NHL Fans in Hamilton. Buffalo is less than 1 hour from Hamilton. It has struggled with attendance for years and verged on bankruptcy a few times. The only sell out games are when Toronto plays. Copps had a preseason NHL game last year and drew 3000 fans. The Have The bulldogs which even though having four stellar years in the finals, still can't draw a crowd. Buffalo arena is on the waterfront that fans can spill out into for Chicken wings and they used to have $20 all you can drink (enjoyed it many times) yet people would only go to leaf games. So the leafs make a huge arguement that the NHL will not gain anything by moving to Hamilton and the Leafs will lose market share and money.

Nashville doesn't have a fan problem. they have a corporate sponsorship problem. A big form of revenue. Hamilton doesn't have many large corporations based in it (don't even say Stelco and Dofasco ) Which Buffalo and Hamilton present as another stumbling block.
wayne, 2007-08-16 08:07:01

Well, the Arena is on the border, 1 mile away. Guess the big hockey fan you are, you've never been there. I have driven the hour from Hamilton many times since it's easy to get tickets in Buffalo. Yes, they are top secret. Sports writers never get a hold of anything like that. But since they aren't available to the general public how do you know its from front door to front door. Oh you're not the general public. You're Jimmy, all knowing. Read the bylaw. Copps is well within the 50 miles. The bylaw doesn't care about roads. But you're too ignorant for facts that don't support your rants. Enjoy your Hamilton NHL team Jimmy LMAO
wayne, 2007-08-16 05:01:38

wayne you don't measure from the border of the states to the border of the city of Hamilton. It states in the NHL Bylaws it's from the front doors of the HSBC Arena to the front doors of Copps Arena.

And the NHL Bylaws are not available to the general public idiot. Only way anyone can get them is to make an offer to buy a team like Jim Basillie did and that's how he and his lawyer found out this infomation you tool. Keep running your mouth like you know what you are talking about because my friends and I have alot of good laughs at you not with you LOL.
Jimmy, 2007-08-16 00:29:45

LMAO @ 46 miles in a straight line. That is hilarious and typical wayne non sense talk LOL. Is that what your map tells you wayne you fool using a string and and a pin ? LOL Or did you draw circles with your crayons using a compass ? LOL. So to go from Hamilton to Toronto using your method of a straight line we could either swim or use a boat eh wayne instead of driving in a car because a straight line from Hamilton to Toronto inst possible unless you use Lake Ontario LOL.

If Jim Kelly a Buffalo area resident says Buffalo isnt in the 50 mile radius then they arent you moron. Ohh yea I forgot you know more than a professional sportswriter.

You are the biggest idiot posting comments. Grow up and act your age for a change instead of your shoe size which are probably in the same range anyways LOL.


Jimmy, 2007-08-16 00:24:02

Buffalo is 46 miles from Hamilton in a straight line. That appears to be less than 50. But not in jimmy's world. Go ahead, type Hamilton NHL Veto Buffalo and see how many sports articles from papers you getthat say hamilton is in the 50 mile zone and Buffalo has the Veto right. You will even get the Actual NHL bylaw in there which clearly states it. Enjoy grade six next year Jimmy. Maybe you can pass it this time.
wayne, 2007-08-15 08:23:57

wayne YOU STILL SPOUTING YOUR BIG YAP ABOUT PIECES OF STRING AND A PIN, CIRCLES AND COMPASSES FOR FINDING THE DISTANCE BETWEEN 2 CITIES LOL. Thats nothing new though. Grow up you fool. Buffalo IS NOT IN THE 50 MILE RADIUS BUT YOU ARE BRAIN DEAD AND CANT GET THAT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULL!

GET THIS THROUGH YOUR 1 BRAIN CELL YOU HAVE LEFT OK CRAP FOR BRAINS, BUFFALO DOES NOT NOW OR EVER HAVE A VETO VOTE ON HAMILTON GETTING AN NHL TEAM.

WHEN OTTAWA AND TAMPA WERE AWARDED EXPANSION TEAMS IT WAS BECAUSE RON JOYCE WANTED TO PAY THE $ 50 MILLION EXPANSION FEE OVER SEVERAL YEARS INSTEAD OF THE LUMP SUM OTTAWA AND TAMPA PAID.

I KNOW YOU HAVE TROUBLE UNDERSTANSING BIG WORDS SO ASK AN ADULT TO HELP TO READ THIS. IF THEY ARENT ANY GROWN UPS AROUND TO HELP YOU READ THIS USE A DICTIONARY TO GET THE MEANINGS OF THE BIG OR SMALL WORDS YOU DONT KNOW THE MEANINGS OF LOL.

Well jimmy, lets go back to Grade six Geography. You may not have taken it yet or just failed it last year so hopefully this helps you. Maps

were developed centuries ago to aid traveleres. You can't make a map lifesze so they have to shrink it and use a scale to define what the distance on the map is compared to real life. Here is the important part, A Mile is equal to a mile on every map. 1 inch on a map may equal 50 miles in reality though. That is the scale. To determine the distance between two points on a map, Two sticks were attached together with a hinge and they sharpened the non hinged ends calling it a COMPASS. They placed one pointed end at the beginning of the scale and one at say 10 miles on the scale. This meant the distance between the two points equalled 10 miles (it wasn't really 10 miles, just to scale, you might not get that). They then placed the first point on the start point and walked it until they reached their end point thus telling them the distance. They then took one of the pointy ends off and replaced it with a pen. This allowed them to stick the pin end in the start point and make a circle around it. The circle and everything in it would be equal to or less than the distance they measured. Does this help?
