(Vital Football)   British Football Association considers allowing 'B' teams into the top league. For you Americans, that's as ridiculous as allowing teams from Phoenix or Winnipeg to play in the NHL. What?   ( divider line

rickythepenguin: hockey is pretty fun to watch but i'm not a fan.

whenever phoenix gets bashed as a hockey town, we always kinda wonder how different the franchise's fortune would have been had they built the stadium in Scottsdale at the old Los Arcos (ok, now it is the "Windsong" or whatever, which is still not really doing anything last i checked).....3-5 minutes from the 202, maybe 5 from the 101, maybe, ehhhhhhh, 15 at most from "downtown" phoenix.....glendale is just so farking far.  i know a few east valley hockey fans that won't go to games on "school nights".  had they built it there, you'd have the entire east valley in your ass pocket.

doesn't matter now but, yeah, scottsdale in the mid-late 90s said, "we don't want your stupid hockey team!  We're gonna build our own thing!"  they built a farking dirt lot that stood up until about 2-4 years ago (Windsong or Skysong or Sunsong, what the fark) and still isn't doing a whole lot.

congratulations scottsdale, in saying 'no' to 15+ years of game related revenue (restaraunts, parking, sales tax, second level real estate investment), you reaped 15 years of ZERO.

But at least they get 100% of ZERO.
