The owner of Phoenix Sun, Robert Sarver, was blown up at a city council meeting to discuss the planned multi-million dollar renovations to the team's 26-year arena.
Greta Rogers, who lives in the Phoenix area and is a regular critic Councils raided Sarver. The Council voted against the proposal to spend $ 1
Rogers had none of this given the sun's recent lostness.
. Sarver has not improved this team over the 14 years he has owned. He never financed or bought two or three key players – and paid for them – which makes every professional sports team successful or on the way to success, "she told the council.
" He's so tight he squeals when walking. And you have negotiated with this person? Shame on every one of you … We are not in the business of paying taxes to support private companies. And above all, no entertainment company. They can feed themselves or fail for lack of diligence. "
Rogers has challenged the Phoenix City Council in the past.
In 2017, she was one of those who claimed a special tax to finance the city Parks: "They gave the middle-finger to the citizens of the city of Phoenix and put their fingers in their eyes," she told the council according to the Republic Arizona. "I want this money to be fully repaid."
In 2016, she expressed her support for the city's plan to increase security at City Hall, but was concerned about possible traffic jams in front of the building: "If a gang came in and had their plan … they could cause havoc in this building, which would be absolutely horrible, "she said. "I think it's long gone that the town hall should be protected."
"Mr. Sarver has done nothing to improve this team over the 14 years he has owned it, so close he squeals when he leaves."
The poll for the renovation of the arena was postponed until January, when, according to FOX 10 Phoenix, it seemed to find no support. The Suns have played since 1992 in the arena, whose construction cost 89 million US dollars.
Saver insisted on Thursday that he wanted to keep the suns in Phoenix, despite a report from the Arizona Republic about threats to relocate the team to Seattle or Las Vegas.
The council member, who had reportedly leaked Sarver's threats against the newspaper, also spoke back.
