The Right Thing to do

Reed can't even grasp the fact there was a deal made in 2007, and his clients never even attempted to get a seat at the table before the settlement was signed.

Where did he say that ?

Its not like they would stop the constitutional measure petition process if they lose in June.

... or that with a simple letter in 2006 could've ended this (and made Standing Rock's opinion inconsequential).

They wouldn't, ... unless the NDSC finds a way to shut down both petition drives in their upcoming ruling ...

I'm mystified by this stance too. It's as if what we're seeing so far isn't enough for them. Would they prefer something as dramatic as the BSC bouncing UND out, or the women's team getting home ice for the NC$$ and then having to play in Fargo? I daresay, if the men's team had to play a home game in Fargo, you'd hear a blood-curdling scream from some of these "fans".

I'm sure the damage isn't just be done on the athletic front. This can't be good institutionally.

I don't see why the NCAA would approve Fargo. If UND has the moniker and is not allowed to host NCAA post-season events, doesn't that mean "can't be the home team"?

I think so. I was extending on comments made by Fasion(?) regarding the women's hockey team and his view of a "solution". But if they have to hit the road to wherever we'll see what the "save the moniker" crowd really thinks about their "principles".

You say that like playing in Fargo would be a bad thing.
I would love to see the men's team play a game in Fargo. I live in Fargo, as do a lot of other Sioux fans. It would be like back in the day when the Green Bay Packers used to play some of their home games at Milwaukee. When a team has such great support throughout the entire state, why not play home games in two different cities?
