What do D'Angelo and the CFL Milwaukee BeerBarons have in common? MANY MANY THINGS.
Milwaukee is the US city that I have studied as a feasible northern US city that would love CFL football just like Baltimore did. Milwaukee also has a history of brewing beer.
Frank D'Angelo brews beer. Frank D'Angelo wants a CFL team. Frank D'Angelo wants to market his product to the US.
Frank D'Angelo and a CFL team in Milwaukee would be a perfect mix.
From the The Ottawa Citizen
"His attempt to bring CFL football back to Ottawa, the failure of which he describes as his greatest disappointment, was about marketing beer and sports drinks........
......The same principle applied to his bid to buy the Pittsburgh Penguins, which also failed. "That would have given us a massive window into the U.S.," he says."
What I see is a perfect partnership. This man is a marketing genius. If Frank D'Angelo were to put a team in Milwaukee, he would:
- Have a CFL team of his own.
- Immediately have international North American exposer as once again the media will jump on another US expansion.
- Market his beverages to the Beer loving Wisconsin football fans.
- This would open the door needed for his product go be served internationaly.
The Milwaukee Stealbacks also has a good ring to the name.
