07:28 AM ET 06.21 | For a franchise used to extended deadlines, decisions may officially be dawning for the Coyotes. The voice on the phone sounded urgent. "It's the most important 24 hours in the history of the Phoenix Coyotes," the source said. Here's the latest: To complete its financing, the Renaissance Sports and Entertainment group needs a firm commitment from the Glendale City Council. They need a number on paper. They say they need $15 million annually. The city has budgeted $6.5 million for management of Jobing.com Arena. To bridge that $8.5 million gap, the two parties have negotiated revenue streams that will theoretically benefit both sides. ... [Word is], the city of Glendale wants that number guaranteed. RSE won't go down that road. And some fear that snag could be a potential deal-killer.

Should be the solution.

Would anyone here be surprised if they got an extension?

Sheesh............about time we got some news from Glendale. Only 74 threads a month saying exactly the same thing, or the same stuff in a different order..............NOBODY CARES. Move the team, shut up.

I know that you're a Hall of Fame fan Shipper and for your sake I hope that the 'Yotes stay in Arizona so you can enjoy them and the vistors. It's a shame however that both the city of Glendale and the league re so inept that this gruesome movie plays out every year.
