Support Make It Seven

Help Jim Balsillie bring a seventh NHL team to Canada. Balsillie is in a legal battle with Commissioner Gary Bettman and the NHL governors to purchase the Phoenix Coyotes. This is Balsillie's third attempt at owning a team with previously failed attempts at purchasing the Pittsburgh Penguins and the Nashville Predators.

If you are having trouble getting motivated for this cause, just listen to this inspiring, catchy song by GMOs.

Who Is Jim Balsillie?
Find out more about the the RIM CEO, the man and the hockey fan in this interview by George Stroumboulopoulos on CBC's The Hour.

Now see an interview from the same program with the man Balsillie is up against, NHL commissioner, Gary Bettman.

Have you ever noticed how defensive Bettman gets in every single interview he gives? He must be constantly insecure about his position. It must be part of his Napoleon complex. He has always reminded me of lawyer Nathan Thurm. In this skit, just substitute Bettman for Thurm and Ron Maclean for Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and you have your typical HNIC interview between those two. It's uncanny how Thurm accuses his interviewer of always interrupting him, just like Bettman does. Spooky even. Take a look at at these other Nathan Thurm interviews, here and here then tell me you don't see the connection. Answer me this. Have you ever seen Gary Bettman and Nathan Thurm in the same room?

What do you think? Should the Coyotes move to Hamilton? Leave a comment and let the world know.
