The Sabres and the Art of Denial

From Jim Kelley at Sportsnet.ca:

One thing we’ve learned is that the art of denial is exactly that; it is an art form and it has reached new and fascinating heights.

For instance, lost in a spate of denunciations is the fact that no one in the Sabres organization denied the original point of the story that the team is for sale. What minority partner Larry Quinn said was that, “We are not in negotiations to sell the team.” Quinn neither named the “we” nor did he say that team owner Tom Golisano, the man most likely to be in the discussions to sell the franchise he purchased out of bankruptcy in 2003, was or was not involved. In fact, Golisano is said to be at the winter meetings in Florida but nowhere to be seen or heard. The owner made no public appearance after Day 1 of the Board of Governors meetings despite the fact he winters in Florida and the other 29 owners have, essentially, come to his house.
