City Paper: Do the Preds Deal

The City Paper today writes an editorial quite similar to the one I posted here a couple weeks ago. Compared to the Convention Center deal – and to a lot of the things Metro spends money on – the deal to keep the Predators in town is a no-brainer.

We’ll see if Dean feels the same way.

    “Compared to all the other ways Metro pisses away money, this is just a drop in the bucket.”

    Good point.

    Have the Preds sold out a match, yet?

    According to today’s City Paper:

    “The editorial failed to disclose that the owners of the parent company of The City Paper, Thompson Machinery, are also prospective minority partners in the local ownership group attempting to buy the Predators.”

    One might say that the editors are invested in the Preds staying.

    Of course, one might say the entire city is too.

    Really? If the entire city is invested, then why aren’t the Preds selling out any matches? Those of us who have misgivings about subsidizing the Preds might take a second look at this if there was an overwhelming fan base that sold out every match. Why should we pay so much more (the Preds are already the most subsidized team in the NHL) for a hockey team that does not seem to be able to fill its own stands on a consistent basis? Do you have season tix?
