Given this repetitive garbage with Ovie - Crysby and that this is going to be played on New Year's Day, if the college football season works out in such a way, this game may not even be the most watched in Pittsburgh, much less during that day.
College Football is king on New Years' Day unless something truly extraordinary is occurring. This won't be anything more than an outdoor hockey game.
Count me out - I'll be watching college football on 3 TVs and two laptops.
My guess at this point is that the Glendale arena is just not a profitable option (or not profitable enough) and the city isn't giving alternative options. The city is slowly digging their own grave.
The biggest issue with Glendale is that it's NOT in Phoenix. It's almost a full hour northwest of Phoenix.
Two, the stadiums are on the very western edge of Glendale itself. Why would someone from Scottsdale fight through late day rush hour traffic and still have to drive two hours one way to get to a game?
I think the Coyotes would be better served by a better location for the arenas more than anything else. A consistently good team would help too.
