A step back for Nashville

There are no solutions to be offered that might cure Nashville or the Predators’ woes in this situation. It is likely Nashville is about to lose one of its two major professional sports teams. City leaders in government and business need to take a long hard look in the mirror. For all of the talk about Nashville’s forward progress, this is likely a huge step back.

Gee it sounds like those guys could really use a new stadium for free.

Think of the urban renewal! THe eceonomic benefits!

Sports teams cure all.

It's weird what's happening in the Music City.

I suspect that Nashville the day after the Predators leave town is going to look remarkably like Nashville did the day before the Predators leave town.

Feel free to substitute whatever temporal increment you like for "day" in the above sentence.

Granted, I'm on the outside looking in, but I don't think Nashville is a huge sports town... Some cities, I think, just don't have professional sports as part of their identity. Take that fact, and try to shoehorn professional hockey of all things into Nashville and you're setting yourself up for disappointment. Ice hockey just isn't part of southern US culture, and if you want to make it work down there, you're going to have to find a better market.
