That the same team that haven't one the Stanley Cup for about 50 years?  They'll fit in well.  Nice stadium though.

Has there been an announcement or just rumour?

I can't find anything official,although various sites are rife with it all.

The lad that phoned me a couple of weeks back (works in finance in Leeds) mentioned Pearson and a Canadian bunch.
Then again he's said similar before.

Like I said...another pricktease probably!

Re: Buyout

Well if close it would be the least bad - I had visions of Bates selling out so someone crooked who'd just carry on the milking or a Venky's type nightmare.

Re: Buyout

Without living up to my strapline what TT is mentioning might be about 2 months slightly out of date and the Canadian connection to that possible takeover was as likely as not for cover......as some will have noticed other web based mediums have moved the geography to the middle east for this weeks rumoured possibility.

As Gore has indicated OMJ passem (and other rumours circultating) others have/may have made it to checking books stage (due dilligance light) and run a mile.....or have been told the price has shot up.....either of these possibilities will still be in play regardless of whether the new wannabee owners are Canadian, Middle Eastern or from Adel.

I always take the adage that if you keep true to TOMA you will only be wrong once and you won't care because Bates is gone.....

Anything over 13th shows Brian McDermott is a miracle worker.

Re: Buyout

We're doomed....I say,we're fucking doomed!!

Whatever the rumours and whether anything comes out of it - someone discussing a bid would fit the standstill on sales and buys and why Colin is saying nowt.

Which could be why the rumours started in the first place... lol

Re: Buyout

There was a story going about at the last game of the season that a group of Canadians were present!

The other bit of the story was that Ken had fired them off and everyone was sulking!

Re: Buyout

As unsuccessful as The Maple Leafs are they do spend a lot of money on that team. Play under a salary cap but ticket prices are insane, I think the dearest in the whole league.

So who else gets to chose the strap line then?

Well that was fun.

Re: Buyout

Wanted to go see them against the Canucks. Over $200 not to be sat half way up Everest. The Marlies are $10 ... not the same though is it.

Re: Buyout

Would it not be more appropriate if the Cannucks bought us? Most violent fans who do like a good old full blown riot when they lose?
