Pretty fricken unbelievable.

"Asper was unsure if he'd play a role in the actual search for a CEO or just offer his opinion and blessing prior to a hire."

Lets get this straigt Bomber Board. Until such time as Asper ACTUALLY comes through with his plans he should have ZERO input on the team. He has FAILED three times to deliver on his promises to the club to build a new stadium. I guess he must be playing NFL football that he gets a fourth down.

This is not new news. I recall reading about Asper's involvement a couple weeks ago.

Come on....enough okay? I am all for a new stadium, without David Aspers involvement and I am against this stupid museum. I think you are a hypocrite GOM...all those who support this museum are. If you are all so against human rights violations then I hope to God you are not buying anything from China. If you are buying things MADE IN CHINA then you sir are a hypocrite!

I haven't a clue. Stick to the subject at hand. This is a thread about the Bombers.

To continue supporting the CMHR-baiter or post about human rights hypocrites start a new thread.

The board needs to be a lot more transparent imo. They are self-appointed and report to no one.

Sweet deal eh.

Does anyone else get the impression that there's some kind of hidden network of people here that runs things...and Asker is a member?

I've suspected that for years, JTF... pretty much why I stopped paying attention to local issues anymore.

This stadium thing, along with the Bauer/Kelley thingy have left me with a very bad taste in my mouth toward the team.

I'm afraid, if Asker gets the team, I really won't be much of a supporter any longer.

I am not sure what you mean by if. They keep cutting him break after break after break. Its obvious they have already given him the team regardless of the success of his "high class shopping mall"

No doubt that the board thinks it's a go, but until he actually gets the keys, I'll remain skeptical. I wouldn't invest with the guy, but I'm sure others would.

I dont think that the board cares if it is a go.
