A short conversation with (former?) IceHogs co-owner Craig Drecktrah

TRRT: Have you left the IceHogs Partnership?

Drecktrah: On purpose. Chris and I have a difference of opinion as to how the direction of the team is going to go.

TRRT: Do you consider this unfortunate?

Drecktrah: Yes.

TRRT: Are you happy with the arrangement?

Drecktrah: Yes.

TRRT: Do you think the IceHogs should enter into a 10-year lease agreement and partnership with the Blackhawks?

Drecktrah: No comment.

TRRT: If you were the City of Rockford would you enter into a 10-year lease agreement with the Blackhawks? Why or why not?

Drecktrah: No, because of the potential amount of money that the taxpayers will be liable to come up with to cover the losses.
