Tim Leiweke Named President of MLSE
Means Bye Bye Bargs and take your pasta with u!
I'm so excited that we have Tim Leiweke!!
Supposedly he is already trying to bring the allstar game to Toronto and I hope he gets rid of BC and Casey and gives FULL authority to Phil Jackson. I also heard that Phil Jackson called to congratulate Tim, but Tim said it was inappropriate to ask Jackson about a possible position available with MLSE. But regardless, he's position comes into effect on June 30 2013 and I hope to see a lot of changes in management.
Oops double posted. The other post has more information and links about Tims previous work.
Well that's annoying the double post was erased...
Tim stated in an interview Phil called to congratulate him and said Toronto is a great market, opportunity, and beautiful city. It sounds like they are negotiating but everything is being kept hush hush. Nothing seems tangible although Toronto media has pretty much already hyped Jackson as the next team president. As a Raptors fan this seems to good to be true although this may end up being the best acquisition MLSE has ever made.
For those like me who aren't from Canada MLSE = Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment
