Are we onto ‘Something’? Time for the ‘Real Truth’!

When this is over, will Jerry Moyes have a case against the NHL and others?

So much has happened regarding this case, I think we need to recap:

When someone at Vieste LLC viewed the article on Moyes being squeezed, did that person contact the NHL head office? After the NHL viewed the article and other articles on this site, did they contact the City of Glendale, who also viewed the website for the first time?

Where there’s smoke, there’s fire?

Why would they waste their time? After all, the deposition of Commissioner Bettman and Bill Daly was to occur the next day. And Glendale was already involved in a bunch of work due to the court demanding they turn records over to the Goldwater Institute.

So, why would that article get some attention? And why would the NHL be on the site just 27 minutes after Vieste LLC?

Why would a developer and investment firm possibly be talking with the league? Could there have been a nerve hit?

And, why yesterday was Mercantile Capital Corporation (owned by Michael Reinsdorf), checking out the article on why the Glendale taxpayers deserve answers?

Who holds the bond for the Jobing.com arena may make this case very compelling. What if it is one of the players mentioned here? That would explain much! I hope the Goldwater Institute is able to obtain that information, as it may assist in any question of unfair advantage or collusion. It may be the icing for this cake. At least Goldwater will be able to make public all the information that the taxpayers deserve to see.

And, when the aftermath of this is behind us, the lawyers for Jerry Moyes might just be getting restarted.  If it can be shown that the NHL holds non- arms length relationships with land developers and financers, and these parties in essence, “hold the league” captive, then Moyes could have a civil lawsuit against the NHL. The relationship of a league should be of primary concern first to the members of the league – owners and players, and only secondarily to the municipalities and developers building the facilities. To hold an owner, stripped of rights because of poor development strategies is potentially actionable in court. I would wish Jerry Moyes well in that regard. And, for that matter, all other owners in the NHL should be aware of this as well.

Perhaps the coming days will tell us more. I think at this stage everyone deserves the real truth!  And, please, no more PR City Hall rhetoric trying to explain away what lies much deeper. It really is getting rather ‘old’.

  36. Having just finished reading James Mirtles excellent article (Aug 30, From the Rink) and the above, looks like Im dead wrong about MLSE “embracing” a team in Hamilton!. Ooops!. I gave them the benefit of the doubt, a BIG mistake when one considers the Leafs & the NHL. My skepticism that Judge Baum will make the hard decisions & allow Balsillies bid to proceed remains, and again, hopefully I’ll be proven wrong about that one as well. The only certainty here is that unfortunately for Phoenix, Jerry Moyes, PSE & Hamilton, no matter what, this thing’ll be in court for months if not years to come.
