Newark and Devils play chicken over arena funding

The Star-Ledger: Cash crisis puts arena on thin ice in Newark. The Devil’s arena promises a boon for the area, bringing jobs and visitors to the city of Newark. Its failure, of course, would leave a massive crater in the heart of downtown the city deeply in debt. This was a huge bet for Mayor James. Let’s hope he pulls this off.
Update: Glad to see they worked it out.
