Michael Cass' article this morning in the Tennessean about the Preds deal lagging is very telling. The new Preds owners "care" about Nashville to the extent that "caring" preserves and enhances their $195 million investment. When you try to pretend that private interests and public interests can be mixed it is a silly exercise in self delusion.
Here is an idea, let those who enjoy hockey as entertainment pay the full price of providing that entertainment and let the vendors who provide this entertainment make as much profit as possible from providing this entertainment. And leave the taxpayers alone!!
