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?
TRRT: Are you happy with the arrangement?
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.
