Is there a shortlist of those who've recently and publically expressed interest in ownership in the CFL? Frank D'Angelo was one. There must be more.
David Asper (Winnipeg)
The Gliebermans (Windsor)
Bill Palmer (Ottawa)
One more ottawa group
Golden Gate is the other group, though I don't recall if the main person responsable was ever named. It was always just the Golden Gate bid.
If you want to go back further, a lad by the name of Grant White was all gung-ho to get a team before the Renegades arrived as well. And Dean Albrecht showed interest during the three week period that the Renegades were for sale.
