Report- Will Tim Leiweke Stay With MLSE?

from Rick Westhead of TSN,

Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment's efforts to find a replacement for chief executive Tim Leiweke have stalled in recent weeks, with some board members musing that the company should try to convince Leiweke to stay on board.

The board has spent months interviewing possible replacements for Leiweke and has been collectively surprised that some qualified candidates haven't been interested in even interviewing for the job.

MLSE is jointly owned by Bell Media, TSN's parent company, and telecom rival Rogers Communications. The perception that those companies are often at odds has made some sports executives contacted by MLSE wary.

MIKE BABCOCK!!!!!!!11!!!

What a dumpster fire.  If the team and their fans weren’t so smug, I might have some sympathy.  Maybe Leiweke can follow his parade route out of town.
