CFL League Statement

The Canadian Football League (CFL) confirmed today that discussions regarding the sale of the Ottawa Renegades Football Club are moving forward with several organizations examining the sports franchise.

Speaking directly to Renegade fans, Commissioner Tom Wright stated: "Our first objective is to manage the process with the Committee of the Board to deliver the best solution for football in the Nation's Capital. As we go forward, I am committed to providing our fans in Ottawa-Gatineau with information on the state of their team as soon as we are able to do so. We recognize how difficult this situation is for
all those involved, particularly members of the Renegades' organization, its players, our fans and our sponsors. We ask for their continued patience and understanding."

Commenting on the timing of a decision, Mr. Wright added: "It is still premature to predict the outcome, but we are making progress and I am confident that a final decision will be forthcoming by mid-month."

Training camp starts in 2 months, making progress at this point in time is kinda uselss if they wish to field a team for this season. They need to do this by the end of the week.

HC Jenkins told us last week @ Town Hall Meeting, that most of the player are waiting for that phone call that will tell them when TC starts.

I hope he's not bluffing, otherwise his turn around-time to field a team will be very short !

But your right, they need to fix this situation ASAP.
