Balsillie: "Bridges? Bah... if I need a bridge, I'll just buy one!!!!!"
Bridge BOG: "Request for ownership denied!!!!"
Balsillie: "DOH!"

Heh heh.

I would LOVE to see the NHL allow a different American team move to Hamilton with their current ownership. Just seeing Balsillie cry would be great.

its one thing to fight against the league but he is dragging other owners through the mud...to legitimately become an owner he needs to approved by other owners by pissing each of them off individually he is making it harder instead of trying to pull some of the owners on to his side

I don't get this guy anymore, he needs the support of the owners not piss them off. I think he has officially given up and is letting out his anger on anyone he can.

Well, to be honest, we all said what Balsillie said (minus any Melnyk references) when the NHL claimed he didn't meet the moral and ethical standards that NHL owners require...

I do recall us all having a good laugh at that with owners like Boots being approved and the mess going on in Tampa etc...

I don't think Balsillie is saying anything we're not thinking... he's just going about it in a brutal way.

Again, it's Balsillie's approach and method that is not working.
