GLENDALE, AZ - MAY 6: Head coach Dave Tippett of the Phoenix Coyotes is shocked, SHOCKED! when the Reinsdorf deal with Glendale 'reportedly' falls through. Robert Lang equally aghast.
So at this point do we just throw our collective hands up and just ask anyone in Glendale if they have any clue at all what they're freakin doing? Reports coming from ESPN and elsewhere now have the City of Glendale's perfect little plan to get buddy Reinsdorf installed to run the Coyotes (The deal was actually total crap) has fallen apart. AND They've crawled back on their hands and knees back to Ice Edge Holdings to try and get a deal hammered out.
Basically we can all go back to the Council meeting where they threw out the Ice Edge bid on one line of text but let ReinsDufus' offer go through even though there were already objections by the Goldwater institute and CoG was giving away the farm for it. What a freakin boneheaded move that was just to come back to the same place a month later.
Daryl Jones of IEH has already stated via twitter that "Ice Edge is not confirming or denying the reports tonight, but we are confirming our bid for Man U has been dropped." AKA, yeah they're probably back in the mix.
AND THAT'S A GOOD THING! They're the guys the fans wanted all along even if the city didn't. They showed up to games, interacted with fans, talked directly to the fanbase and did all the things that a new owner here is going to need to so to make this thing work. I'm sure we'll get 73 different version of what's really going on during the day today, but as of right now I'm glad to have the guys back in it.
