I agree that the struggling NHL franchise in Phoenix should be relocated to Canada (SCORECARD, Sept. 21). Commissioner Gary Bettman, a principal architect of putting franchises in Sun Belt states, seems more concerned about his image than about doing what is best for the league. Franchises in Phoenix, Dallas, Tampa and Atlanta are hurting. Northern cities in the U.S. and Canada would enthusiastically support NHL hockey. Give Hamilton, Ont.; Cleveland; or Seattle a chance.

As someone who followed the Winnipeg Jets and still wears a hooded team sweatshirt, I say move the Coyotes back to Winnipeg and let's pretend the last 13 years were a bad dream.

Time on His Hands
Your story on Notre Dame's loss to Michigan (PASS-FAIL COURSE, Sept. 21) criticizes Irish coach Charlie Weis's play-calling late in the game. What was he supposed to do—play for a tie? If Weis runs the ball and forces the Wolverines to use timeouts, Michigan still has about two minutes and 25 yards to go for a tying field goal. It's not as if Notre Dame had a seven-point lead. I'd rather see coaches be aggressive.
