Is this long saga in the desert at an end? Perhaps it is after the Glendale City Council voted 4-2 in favor of the city’s 20-year, $320 million lease agreement for prospective Phoenix Coyotes buyer Greg Jamison.
The agreement will help the team stay in Jobing.com Arena and hand over duties of managing the facility to Jamison. The one catch here is he’ll have until January 31, 2013 to close on the sale of the team or else the process, with a newly voted in city council, will begin all over again.
Outgoing mayor Elaine Scruggs, who was against the deal, was not pleased at the outcome of the vote saying, “The public will find they were mislead.” She then added, “I choose to support people in other types of uniforms. Police uniforms, fire uniforms…not Coyotes uniforms.”
Is this the end of the story for now? Let’s hope so, but the track record over the last three years says there’s always a twist waiting to be unleashed.
