Show me the money

Re: Bulldogs seal deal with city, May 29

Well, the team was second in attendance in the division and fifth in the league out of 16 teams.

Forty-three hundred dollars a month for ice rental times a seven month season is $30,100. What’s the difference between operating fees and ice rental?

When (Lucas)Banton asserts that the impact to the community of the team is between $750, 000 to $1 million is he saying that much comes in to the Valley?

If people didn’t spend that money on the Bulldogs, wouldn’t they spend it anyway on something else?

If so who cares what the impact is?
