Buttman versus Canada

You wouldn't believe the cranky e-mail we are getting about Buttman's alleged cartel-like behaviour in not letting Ballsley acquire the Coyotes.

The gist of the letters is, "where was Buttman when small market teams in Winnipeg and Qu├ębec were sold to American shopping plaza millionaires?"

Other comments: "Garry gives away tickets and then claims attendance records? Isn't this indecent?"

"He mismanaged a mainstream sport and turned it into a cable TV obscurity. There oughta be a law, right?"

This whole business reeks the big one. It's a disgrace to our national sport.

Maybe when I retire from politics I can get involved in the league, and sort this whole mess out.
