So what's the deal? Is Esche so embarrassed by the failed fan drive that he's cancelling the Facebook interview?

And here, I thought your savant was limited to hockey. Now, I see, you are equally unknowing in several areas evidenced by your posts on many threads in this forum.

I will only go to the games if I am going to meet you. I'll wait until the 10th game; then it will only be you and me in the aud. The rest of the community will have exhausted their annual disposable income allotment.

Really?

Did you read or listen to the County Executive's state of the county address yesterday. He gave statisics regarding how much of the local population depends on government to get by. I think he might be surprised by your assertion.

Those aren't the people coming to the games and those aren't the people the team targets.

The people on public assistance are prime candidates for a job at a proposed chip manufacturing plant correct? I mean I'm sure they're the most qualified for those ever elusive high paying jobs right?

you won't see Utica34 there because they don't take food stamps at the Aud.

there is no agreement with utica or the state. That link is calgalry and abbotsford. The canucks are here, not the flames. Esche and his group have the agreement with the canucks. And they pay a set amount each month to vancouver for players and staff.
