POS article.

The crew had been planning their assault on Allentown for a while.

They intentionally hid the majority of the details surrounding the planning and financing of their golden goose siege on this burnt out city.

It is not only the EIT but all of the businesses that will be sucked into the hockey arena vortex, due to the cheap rents that will prevail in the marketplace.

These are challenging economic times but the masses of the masters of denial refuse to admit it.

Only a complete itinerant fool would think this is a regional project.

Allentown is reaping what it justly deserves. What else can you expect really?

This article sums up what I have been saying the whole time. Thanks Jim Deegan. After these projects are done here in the City Without Limits, we will laugh hard at the fact you suburban, know nothing, lames tried your hardest with weak lawsuits to stop Allentowns rapid progression. What a joke, seriously. They should send this article out like a newsletter to all you suburban Allentown haters. Common sense is becoming very prominent about this issue and the townships suing are looking more and more stupid everyday and it's becoming pretty comical.

It should be known as the black hole of local political parasites to siphone money to there personal bank accounts. All the while claiming this is good for the local economy, at best a circus side show with the king and his court jesters givin the yes nod? Maybe they are all nodding because of the herion the king put in the water.

Future - yeah right. We will see, we will see.

Who you going to work for next when these carpetbaggers blow town?

Maybe you can be PBs personal man boy when he is not reelected and becomes a house husband.

Looks like the lawsuits must have had merit, the Mayor is offering to settle...why not fight it?

Because they are trying to just stall us and fighting it would cost us money also. We rather just throw money at them, no big thing. The Arena will continue to make ALLENTOWN money for decades and decades.

The pos palumpa should worry about all upcomming lawsuits that will be creeping from under the rug. The political campaign donations are all public record and his neglegence as the superior law enforment officer is in question as mayor.

This lawsuit has merit, the mayor knows it and now they are backtracking saying things like "we don't really need the money"...one has to wonder why they took it in the first place if this is the case?? Something shady is going on, hopefully an investigation will follow.

The raping of citizens by this administration for a SPORTs palace is shameful.
