Does anyone know whatever happened to Montreal Aloettes owner Ted Workman.
He owned the club from 1957 to 1967, and was a 50% owner from 1968 to 1969. He sold 50% of the club to Joe Atwell in December 1967. Then in December 1970 Sam Berger, former owner of the Ottawa Rough Riders bought the Als completely 100% from Workman and Atwell
After that, Workman dropped out of the news and was never heard from again.
In 1962, Workman bought a large piece of land in Ville D’Anjou, and was planning to build a state of the art football stadium with 42,000 seats. However, he was never able to raise the proper cash or partners and by 1964 the project was abandoned.
At the time, people said the Als could not financially survive at McGill Stadium, and that’s why they eventually moved to the neew Autostade (long since demolished). At the time, Percival Molson Stadium could not be called Molson Stadium on TV, because CFL football back then had Carling O’Keefe as their major sponsor. So they called it McGill Stadium.
So whatever happened to Ted Workman ???/
