WOULD PREDATORS BE JUST FINE MISSING SEASON TICKET DEADLINE?
Published March 10, 1998
The Predators, who must sell 12,000 season-tickets by March 31, are "believed to have sold between" 9,500 to 10,000 as of Friday, according to Jeff Legwold of the TENNESSEAN. But if the team does not meet its goal, "it is highly unlikely the franchise would be revoked." Legwold wrote that many "inside the league have said privately" the team would be "heavily fined -- as much as" $5M to $10M -- if the sales target is not reached. NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman: "Simply put I have to take into account that there are three other franchises coming into the league over the next three seasons who are watching, so this is a condition I take very seriously" (TENNESSEAN, 3/7).
