So glad the county and city jumped in and bought the stadium to keep the organization afloat and protect jobs in the arena district so we can have no hockey games to keep the organization afloat and protect jobs in the arena district. /sarcasm
cooks and security and general cleaners and local businesses depend on hockey games happening- or so we were told when a purchase of the arena was forced upon us... seems that these people being able to pay rent and buy food isn't so important now.
However. what's really important is that the local rich elite and one of the wealthiest Columbus corporations whom successfully dumped the arena burden on the taxpayers back, with the full cooperation and support from the city council and mayor and zero public discourse, are now free and clear of the financial risk involved with their poor business decision.
If there is no hockey this season, let's see what the council and mayor do to support the 10,000 Arena District workers that would be financially distressed.
