Mark Hamister was supposed to be the white knight, riding in to valiantly save the team. But Hamister now says he wants $25 million in government assistance to save the damsel in distress. This may be nothing more than a bluff on his part. Or it may be that he has realized that if he goes through with his proposed purchase, he will be throwing away his money. Bankruptcy remains the most likely option, and once that occurs, the folding of the team might not be far behind.
