Consider this a final post-script to a mildly sordid saga: Harvey Rosen, the mayor who oversaw the construction of the K-Rock Centre, which is more than half-empty most of the time when the Kingston Frontenacs are playing, is resigning.
Rosen delivered with a new arena for owner Doug Springer's Frontenacs, but the new building bump that was promised has never showed itself, either in the stands or OHL standings (Kingston, which last won a playoff series in 1998, was 12th overall in the 20-team OHL this season after missing the playoffs two previous seasons).
The revenue projections when the Krock Pot opened in 2008 was based on the Frontenacs averaging 3,500 fans per game for 34 regular-season dates and 4,500 for four home playoff games.
