I think I could live with all of that. But no way was this put together in one day.


Agreed HW. This must have been in the works for some time.

I think I also agree with Meds here. Trevor and Bob Nicholson both seem like they would make good team Presidents, but I'd prefer to have a GM with some actual experience and a track record this time around.

Now retracting and saying that they did not report that.....they have heard nothing about Nicholson. Not sure where that came from.

My guess given all the rumors today is some combination of Nicholson, Naslund and Linden. Linden was evasive in his interview this morning, Nicholson and Naslund just quit their management jobs and are both rumored to be in the mix. These would certainly be very popular moves.

There will be more to come, would be nice to see somebody like Nicholson come in and play the John Davidson role. We will see.


Gilman and Henning still here will help me sleep well tonight.

However, come morning, if it turns out they've hired Feaster....

How upset is Tony G about all this?! Wow, he's finally lost his inside source, he pissed, and it's obvious.
