So what did everyone think about the Jeff Hunt Interview (on Prime Time Sports)???
For me, the positives (feel free to correct my numbers)...
i) The go ahead with the stadium;
ii) The size of the stadium (23K with 42 (or was it 52) boxes)
iii) The costs ($1.6 annually) to fold the team;
iv) The deal they have with Lorne Chen to buy the "Rough Rider" name;
v) The 2014 scheduled start.
i) The suggestion that a new name is needed going forward.
When I heard this my heart sank! Bob McCown was disappointed too.
Does anyone know how I can communicate with Jeff Hunt and the other (potential) owners so I can stress my willingness, and the willingness of my friends, to contribute to the team (6 hours away) if they are named "Rough Riders".
All the Pro "Rough Riders" need to let the ownership group know our desire to see the team name returned and our willingness to make it worth the teams while - buying mechandise, tickets, etc...
From what he said, the "NO RR" groups have been much more vocal.
