Coyotes’ Risky Move: Have They Signed Their Own Death Wish?

The Arizona Coyotes are seeking to stay in Arizona and find a new home nearby after people rejected their plans to develop a $2.1 entertainment zone in Tempe in a referendum on Tuesday. In a bizarre move, they asked Twitter users for advice on where to locate a new rink.

Their approach got weirded on Friday when the Coyotes went again on Twitter with a “if this gets X number of likes, we’ll do this,” strategy that was most popular in the mid-late 2010s, telling fans it will reveal its new arena plans if they reached 20,000 likes.

They posted the most absurd link for fans to discover, only to end up on a page where a play button awaits. If you click, you will be watching a 10-hour long looping video of Rick Ashley’s Never going to give you up.

This is hands down the dumbest move I have ever seen an NHL franchise make, especially one that is trying to show the league that it can be a market and a real competitor.

I am sorry but I am done with the shenanigans from the Coyotes who have just signed their death wish when it comes to having fans on their side to get a new arena in Arizona.

They need to be relocated – and to get a new team handling social media!

I grew up playing Ball and Roller Hockey day and night somewhat religiously throughout elementary and middle school. The two don't compare though when I lace up the skates and hit the ice. I live and breathe hockey beyond the perspective of "it's just a game" and I will gladly talk hockey for hours with anyone. Hockey is more than just a lifestyle, it's a culture of passionate people who make memories every time the puck is dropped. Hockey has not only helped me get through some of the hardest times in life but has created some of the best memories to date. Want to talk hockey with me? Shoot me an email: and let's talk some hockey!
