WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama's push to curb executive compensation deemed excessive aims to reassure taxpayers worrying that the money used to bail out Wall Street might be going to big bonuses. U.S. Barack Obama Crisis in Credit EconomyWall Street's reputation among the American public is extremely poor; financiers are blamed for a housing mess that is a major reason the U.S. economy is sinking.A front-page story in The New York Times on Thursday underscored the concern. The paper reported that employees at financial companies in New York collected an estimated $18.4 billion in bonuses last year.Just this week it was disclosed that Citigroup, the beneficiary of some $50 billion in taxpayer bailout money, was on the cusp of buying a $50 million corporate jet, only to cancel the deal under pressure from Washington.Americans are experiencing bailout fatigue, as they watch their government dole out billions of dollars to save companies that are at least in part to blame for the economic calamity, but do not seem to show a sense of remorse.Obama needs the trust of the American people to keep pursuing a bailout of companies and banks and keep the economy from completely disintegrating.His vow to get tough on executive pay "outrageous" was the word White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said the president had used aimed to give Americans some measure of confidence that the government is acting in their best interest."Whether it's government or the financial system, we're not going to be able to do what is needed to be done to stabilize our financial system if the American people read about this type of outrageous behavior," Gibbs said.(Reporting by Steve Holland) U.S. Barack Obama Crisis in Credit Economy. At the time, I said in that article that there was no better topic to discuss at the time.
However, I didn’t think about the Phoenix Coyotes.&12288;The ‘yotes have been in the middle of a financial turmoil, and if the city of Glendale and the NHL think that I am about to back them, they are dead wrong. Ever since the Coyotes were moved to Phoenix from Winnipeg, a move brought to you buy the Commish himself, Gary Bettman, the team’s attendance has been going down, and not stopping.&12288;I realize that there are some Coyotes fans out there, and they probably love their team as dearly as I support the Penguins, but unfortunately, not only does the team not have enough fans, but they also have no business being in Phoenix (no pun intended). I can’t remember the last time that they sold out a game, Detroit Red Wings fans, out number ’yotes fans, in Phoenix, and I don’t think that they’ve had a single snowfall on record in Arizona.&12288;Now that we have a reason for the Coyotes to move, where do they move Jim Balsillie, and his PSE team want to move the team to Hamilton, Ontario, with their “Make It Seven” campaign. However is that the best move for the franchise&12288;Let’s look at some attendance rates of the current team occupying the Hamilton market, the AHL’s Hamilton Bulldogs. The average attendance rate for the Hamilton Bulldogs for the 2008-2009 season, was 4,623. That is pretty poor for the “greatest hockey market in the world, not served by an NHL team”, as Balsillie calls it.&12288;Also, all of the following OHL markets had a better average attendance then Hamilton in the 2008-2009 season. London (9,006), Ottawa (7,865), Kitchener (6,245) Windsor (5,063) and Oshawa (4,794) Oh yeah, Hamilton truly is the greatest hockey marker ever.
