Everyone grab your rain coats. Boots, umbrellas, what ever you have. Get everything out because if you live in Boston there is a shit storm brewing bigger than the last Nor’easter.
So, the North American Hockey League continued to venture into the North Eastern United States this year with the addition of the North East Generals. Yeah, they were getting a beautiful new rink, and they already had an NA3HL team. Lets not forget that $400,000 check for that new franchise that goes to the league either.
Funny thing is, the arena still looks incomplete, and the NAHL first season in Boston ummmmm well lets just break out that great old Turd Wax.
On top of the crappy season. Pun intended. The rumors about the brand new building not paying its bills have been swirling since the building opened.
Things like the buildings lights being left on all night because the contractor locked the circuit box due to unpaid construction bills tend to get noticed by people. Those huge electric bills are sure to be noticed by the buildings owners too! *correction that is another Boston area arena with its light on*
Now it turns out that Construction Source Management of West Bridgewater filed a lawsuit in Bristol Mass. Superior Court claiming it did $16.1 million worth of work and the sports village has not responded to demands it pay the remaining balance.
Ummmmm yeah. Sixteen Million aint no pocket change. That’s a holy shit amount of money.
Seriously, think about all this put together. I mean, the guys that own the team don’t own the rink and aren’t responsible for those millions, but wow, this is a mess.
Now I was told by the boss today that the rink is allegedly going to file suit on the contractor who built the place. Yep, nothing like some good old lawsuits and counter suits to warm you up on a cold winter shit storm night eh boys?
On another note, a new arena and team may be in the works to expand operations in the North East. Plans for an arena and expansion team on a floating barge in Chesapeake Bay are being discussed. An elevator down to the barge to usher fans down to row boats from the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is planned. The row boats will take fans out to the barge, and will be manned by the players as part of their pre game warm up plan. An oyster bar is also planned.
