    Canes and Centennial Authority Close to Extension

    True, but none of those amounts are nothing either ... until the last year, when one presumes you'd be either in process for the next negotiation round or done with a new deal. You can look at virtually everything as a positive or negative, but no matter how you spin it the health and...

    He's still deeply beloved in both markets by fans of a certain age. Irbe was a gem, man. An under-appreciated little badass.

    I doubt it. The owner of the Utah Royals, Dell Loy Hansen, is basically bankrolling the thing out of pocket ... to be reimbursed with whatever the league can cobble together for sponsorship money. You can bet that Cary didn't make THAT offer

    Honestly, that's a pretty big sample size so those numbers aren't terrible. Doesn't mean it makes sense to throw caution to the wind, but ... whatever.

    True on both points. I do NOT miss Obstruction Unlimited on defense, but it's easy to watch Archie doing his thing and miss that. I loved that little semi-autonomous trash can.

    Look ... don't let the long term stuff detract from the big picture here. It's a REALLY good thing that Dundon and the Authority agreed to this lease extension. It was a process that was fraught with tension and it seems like everybody found common ground. That's awesome for the stability of the...

    Gonzo is too smart for this analogy. More like Telly and Fozzie.

    That's because there are a TON of them, spread out all over Uptown. And yes ... it still takes an hour or more to get out of some of them after games. Decks at stadiums and arenas suck. Period.

    Look ... the sad truth is that Glendale works very well for football and sucks for hockey. None of these solutions are one size fits all, and the current planning team that the Authority is using is really the first crowd to take undertake an impartial review of what the next generation of...

    Yeah ... additional wetlands mitigation in that area isn't as easy as it sounds. They've already shifted about as much water handling as humanly possible given current technology. There's also more contaminated soil issues out there to be addressed ... including some radioactive waste. Nope. Not...

    That he'd be "tarred and feathered and run out of town on a rail?" Umm ... I'll take a pass on that. Decks at the stadium would be unpopular because decks are unpopular at stadiums EVERYWHERE. Mostly because nobody enjoys waiting 2-3 hours to get out of the deck after a 4 hour game. Now ...

    Thanks for this delightfully informed take. You have just described pretty much two thirds of college football stadiums across the country. People don't like parking decks because they're a pain in the butt to get out of, not because they're a bunch of drunks. Bless your heart boy, but you do...

    I've got an Australian client who is currently sitting on $25,000 AUS worth of airline vouchers. He makes props for small aircraft and flies all over the Pacific Basin for business. We're living in weird, weird days.

    I doubt Carolina will go with the 4 forwards/4 defense model. They'll all but surely go the 8 skaters route. No way you leave Turbo or Necas hanging out there like you'd have to do if you could only protect 4 forwards. The D group is deeper, and you might see them make an offer to somebody like...
