Testify Brother Quinn!

Tanenbaum Now 2nd Largest MLSE Shareholder

(Excerpts from the Globe and Mail, click linky to go to full story) CTVglobemedia Inc. has struck a deal to sell half its stake in the company that owns the NHL's Toronto Maple Leafs and the NBA's Toronto Raptors to fellow owner Lawrence Tanenbaum. Mr. Tanenbaum said in a news release Friday that the media company has agreed to sell him 7.7 per cent of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment Ltd., a transaction that will make him the second-largest shareholder in MLSE after the Ontario Teachers Pension Plan. CTVgm is currently the second-largest shareholder in the company. The parties did not disclose the price, but it is thought to be between $90-million and $100-million. ... The private company does not disclose its financial results, but sources told The Globe and Mail last month that it generated about $80-million in profit in its latest fiscal year and was valued at as much as $1.6-billion a year or more ago.

If you asked us if you were to pay for a Stanley Cup team this year, but you were to be lousy for the next five years, would you do it? The answer from the ownership point of view, absolutely not. We want to see a consistently strong winning team over the long term. If it takes two or three years to rebuild this team, let that happen, to know that it's going to be a strong contending team for 10, 15 years.

Kevin McGran gives internet idiots of every bent a chance to post their favourite logical fallacy or dumbass stereotype about the Leafs and their fans. Of course it makes more sense for MLSE to want a shot at multiple Cups instead of blowing it's wad on just one. Now, of course fans would trade one Cup right now with no thought of future consequences. I can't find it but Bill Simmons had a poll about that once and the vast majority agreed that one and done was preferable to trying to get multiple ones (like the Marlins have done twice) but smart ownership (which MLSE is trying to become...) is supposed to help save fans from themselves. There is a reason why the team fell apart after 1967...

Fire The Board
