From the Miami Herald:

Panthers CEO Rory Babich wouldn’t play ball when we asked him today what his Plan B is -- and if it includes relocating the team --- if the Broward County Commission rejects his request for a hike in bed tax dollars.

“In my view that is a hypothetical ....,” Babich said in an interview after a Tower Forum event in Fort Lauderdale Thursday. “It’s my belief we will reach an appropriation resolution.”

We’ll let you click on the link for the details. (We’d rather write about hockey than bed taxes.)

But it’s no surprise that Babich was asked about the potential for relocation after the Panthers hinted at (threatened?) that exact possibility in a presentation to the county.

Remember this?
