What a classy guy, we all knew that. I just heard Tom today on Fan 590 here in Toronto and he was on with Bob McCown and co-host for this week Stephen Brunt.He was his usual up beat and chearful self.
Bob asked him if he has a new job and Tom indicated he was still looking and how his daughter calls him an "unemployed bum".
On the transition period, Tom advised there wasn't one persay but he has had a few discussions with Mark Cohon.
He remains available for Mark to call him anytime.
The league remains very strong and he expects some news before the season on new sponsorships.
As for Ottawa, there is no doubt at 100% the team will return and bets are it will be next year. The league continues strong dialogue with the one group who was discibed as very strong and connected.
Also and somewhat surprising which was also echoed by Stephen Brunt(who has heard threw the the grapevine), there is strong discussion in Atlantic Canada and surprise, from Halifax about building a brand new stadium and having a team sooner then later.
In fact, Tom heard just these past few days interest is very serious from politicians of all people.
I still say TW should have been the commish to this day and future.
