In a surprise twist, the board named former Bomber fullback Wade Miller, who retired in 2006 after playing his entire 11-year career in blue and gold, as acting CEO. Firing Mack was Miller’s first move in that role.
Makes you wonder if maybe Buchko was behind the leak of the Mack story, and the board canned him for it.
seaking of the bombers, things are looking UP already:
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers have signed major sponsorship agreements with three Manitoba Crown corporations.
The deals with the Canadian Football League club include Manitoba Hydro, Manitoba Public Insurance and the Manitoba Liquor and Lotteries Corp.
Global News says it has learned through a freedom-of-information request that Manitoba Public Insurance has a three-year sponsorship deal worth $330,000 that will cover transit rides and other transportation needs for home games.
A seven-year, $2.1-million agreement with the Manitoba Liquor & Lotteries Corp. entitles the corporation to sponsor the Flight Deck area at Investors Group Field and provide youth and community outreach programs with 36 tickets to each home game.
Manitoba Hydro has not disclosed the amount of its deal, but says it received four season tickets in exchange for advertising and promotional material inside the Bombers' new home at the University of Manitoba.
The three Crowns say tickets they receive will not be given to board members, executives or cabinet ministers.
And hopefully no more Swanson T.V. Dinners....or 8-track tapes in the Caddy!!!! Looks like the guy squeezing all the nickels got squeezed himself.OUCH!!!! Begs the question....how much longer for Burke? before he walks the plank?
....On the hook for more salaries...That's a good thing that Hydro is on board...might be a godsend at this time...Miller is a good businessman and knows the CFL and it's workings very well....I hope he works out and 'double-due diligence' is paid to ALL of the new hirings in the future :thup:
