Another Francis tweet "King "we're not shopping, we're not looking around." Bettman is here to help guide Flames forward"

Sort of like that adage - I am from Head Office and am here to help!

Rolling on the floor laughing! I honestly don't care if they leave. Also don't care if they stay.

Does he even care anymore? He lives in England.

Absolutely ridiculous. Posted this in the other thread but this is right off Nenshi's campaign website:

Quote:
A new arena - I support a new arena, and certainly there is enormous benefit in having a NHL team and an arena in the downtown core, but it has to be the right deal for Calgarians - a made-in-Calgary solution that meets our unique needs during this fragile economic recovery. Built north of the Saddledome, in the heart of Victoria Park, a new arena could host sporting events and concerts throughout the year. I believe that we can develop a win/win funding model that works for both the taxpayer and CSEC (the owners of the Flames). The funding model must be based on the principle of public benefit for public money. The City will never walk away from the table and I will work hard to reach the right deal.

My eyes can't roll any harder or they'll fall out of their sockets. But remember, we're not going to threaten to leave guys.

Can we get rid of King already? I've never seen someone so out-of-touch.

This is the kind of clown show that should be unfolding in Edmonton - not Calgary!

Why is he so willing to just give up quickly when he bent over frontwards and backwards to keep the Coyotes in Glendale?

Disgusting posturing. The Flames have some really terrible owners.

That way Seattle will never get a rink.

This is exactly what the team needed just before the start of the season.

You know, I really want to support the team on the ice, but I just can't support King and this this ownership group. I'm not sure I'll be buying hockey tickets this season until they stop acting like petulant children.

Wow. If half the drama is true this still has horrible horrible taste.

The timing of this pisses me off. Up to now I was excited for the season.

Murray Edwards what are you really up to?

So we're back to threats doom and gloom.smfh.

How can King say that the city hasn't been willing with even remotely a straight face?

Ken King and the owners are a joke.

The city has put in more work and effort than King and the Flames have.

This is all about trying to impact the election. They don't want to deal with Neshi, hoping the tilt the favor to someone more pliable.

I can't believe it has come to this. If they leave, I'll never cheer for another NHL team again, even if Calgary gets a team back.
