Is anyone looking for a hockey team......

Starting bid is 695,000. That's about what the Coyotes are worth.

Congratulations!!! You win the "dumbest post of the day" award!

Whatever. Better to not exist than lose over 30 million a year. That franchise is a joke.

I wonder how much they would have lost in Winnipeg annually if they stayed? :rolleyes:

So are your sources.

But you're not biased, at all. :rolleyes:

Wouldn't it be easier to have "Phoenix sucks, bring back Winnipeg" permanently on your clipboard, that way, you can just ctrl+v in all the threads and save yourself a lot of time?

Apparently these are bad sources:

And of course I'm biased. Aren't all sports fans?

OMMF, that's a good idea - I'm not sure why I didn't think of that.

I should have realized my attempt at humour in bashing the Yotes would create such a fierce backlash.

But you guys are right. I shouldn't pick on such a well-respected team that is adored by their fans. All 12 of them.

A picture's worth a thousand words, as they say.

Yes, but all sports fans don't interject that bias in to almost every discussion possible. I despise the Canadiens, Maple Leafs, Flyers, etc., as a Bruins fan, but whenever a thread comes up about them, I don't immediately hop in and deride that team with the intent of propping up mine. Teams of one team will always have ill feelings towards their rivals (perceived or otherwise) but maturity usually keeps those feelings from becoming uncivil.

Edit: I take that back. I do interject when the Winter Hawks are mentioned, but as Frylock and the other OR residents know, it is all good fun and I can take it as well as I give it. Friendly banter is much different than "You took my ball, now I'm going to cry about it," or "My ball would be much nicer than yours is, even though it was mine to begin with. My ball will be played by more kids simply because the kids that live on my block are born wanting to play with this ball whereas you had to create interest in your ball."

There are songs I love to listen to but hearing even the best jazz trio play the same tune over and over again gets tiring. And you are no jazz trio.

Huh?

Almost every discussion possible? I can count on one hand the number of times I've mentioned this sort of thing out of context.

But whatever. You'll believe what you want to believe anyway.

-Helix-, how do you prefer your crow... braised, breaded, or fried?

...and for the record, the Jets' main hurdle is not the day-to-day operating of a team, but the initial purchase price (widely considered to be in the $100-$175 million range).

There's strong evidence to support the claim that a team could, at the present time, feasibly operate in Winnipeg, if there was someone to step up and put a team in the MTS Centre.

FFS, get over it winnipeg.

Don't worry, Bring Back the Jets stories only come out on a quarterly basis at this point, so it's not going to happen all too often.

That said, I do believe that there's a wrong that needs to be righted here, and you'll pardon me if I speak to it when opportunities to do so arise.
