Promises, Promises

from George Richards of On Frozen Pond,

If the county agrees to pay for the scoreboard, it will be in place by this coming season.

If they don't ...

"We've put enough money into the building,'' Yormark said, adding the team is spending $1 million to replace the original flooring in the main concourse this summer.

"We're not in the position to buy one. If the scoreboard just collapses next year, which I'm sure it will, we just won't have a scoreboard.''

Yormark said Monday that an NHL rep will be with him at Tuesday's commission meeting in Fort Lauderdale.


To tell the commissioners that if the scoreboard is approved, the NHL promises to bring the draft to Sunrise within the next three years.

Sunrise is like Glendale, except an even sadder situation.

Good Lord, what a crook this Yormark is. 3rd most profitable venue of its type on earth, Sunrise Sports gets to keep all that profit (despite not owning the venue) and they can’t pay to fix a damned scoreboard?

Coyotes bleed like the inside of a slaugherhouse. SSEA is quite, quite rich from controlling Bankatlantic through the Panthers.

Better analogy would be the Marlins or the Oilers. The owners of those respective franchises are swimming in towers full of gold, yet want taxpayers to fund everything.
