Clearly, only Mary Worth can solve this problem. Happy holidays!

  1. Are the two parties splitting all the other revenues from the building as well, or is that a sad and naive question?

  2. Merry Christmas Neil ! Have you heard about this plan to build a 6000 seat baseball park in Montreal to attract a potential minor league team down the road? I asked you about this in your online question forum once. Peace

  3. From what I can tell with my high-school French, they need to convince the province of Quebec to cough up $50 million to build the thing, then find a team to play in it. Not much to comment on until there’s some sign of those things happening.

  4. another example of sports franchise owners shaking down taxpayers and then stiffing them for what’s owed.
    the reported “benefits” of these deals will never match or exceed
    what the franchise owners take in. owners, athletes, their agents and players associations will eventually have to be forced to do more with less, the economy can’t sustain the growth in the sports biz that has been experienced during the last 25 years.
    these businesses aren’t “too big to fail”, if they need to be subsidized by taxpayer bailouts they should fail.
    y’all may not like this but we’re heading for a brick wall at 99mph.

  5. Thanks Neil. I like the idea.Montreal would support minor league ball especially in a new stadium in a good part of town.I heard some investors would put up half of the 50 mill but i guess we’ll see.

  6. Some time before, I needed to buy a car for my organization but I did not have enough cash and couldn’t order something. Thank God my colleague proposed to get the loans from reliable creditors. Hence, I acted so and was satisfied with my auto loan.

  7. That’s great that we are able to get the credit loans moreover, it opens new opportunities.

  8. Here in Indianapolis the media is reporting that even though the NBA has settled their contract the city may need to pick up the maintenance fees for the building in which the Pacers play. The said same building that the taxpayers built for 183 million dollars and that the Pacers pay the exorbitant rent of $1 per year. All of this is a prelude for the Pacers to receive another subsidy of taxpayer dollars to cover the maintenance costs of Conseco. The Pacers received 33.5 million in taxpayer dollars to cover mainteance fees the last few years and now want that subsidy to be permanent. Apparently there is no end to the greed of billionaire owners and unfortunately there isn’t any reticence here in Indianapolis to cease filling their pockets with lucre.
