CFN – Did Brock Frost buy the River Kings to help him get elected to council? Mr. Frost gave out two interviews to the Seaway News first denying and then being exposed by former River King mucky muck Mitch Gagne on Facebook.
That’s one of the biggest buzz chats right now for River King fans who are venting their frustration as rumors are flying that owner Brock Frost has “sold” the team to one Darren Madden.
Madden, pictured on the left and Frost (on right) were both uunavailablefor comment. Mr. Frost who did not actually participate in any debates during the election was telling whoppers about being rushed to hospital and back in 90 minutes from one debate and then told a mythical tale about having a three day sleep study which the clinic he named stated they do not offer.
One team insider says that Mr. Madden had to borrow food money last season and that there is already infighting among team hanger ons.
It was also reported that several player’s cheques bounced while Frost was partying in Mexico after the election.
Attendance is down this season as well as the team focused on, um, erm,
puck bunnies marketing instead of on ice talent of which a few players are said to have already left the team.
Mr. Frost has refused previously to this writer to personally guarantee season ticket holder’s funds. One rumor monger thought that Mr. Frost was funding Madden so that Mr. Frost could lobby for the team in open council without being called on conflict of interest; but clearly the optics would reek if Mr. Frost tried stumping for an arena deal in open council as a team owner in the same season.
Some of the fans were venting in a facebook fan page.

Mr. Frost has left a trail of non paid bills in his business track leading back to his failed Church on Sydney facility. Should be interesting if he ends up on the Budget committee for the city of Cornwall.
The scary thing as he appears to be leaving the team to implode under Mr. Madden is that there are people that care and want to save the team, but Mr. Frost appears unwilling to sell the team to them, even if for a sum of $1 to ensure the team survives.
CFN spoke to one investor who expressed their frustration at what they termed Mr. Frost’s lack of professionalism or caring about Hockey or the team.
He’s a F****** ****** Ball ******* and has ****** us all over.
CFN was also told, but has not confirmed that players and staff were notified of a sale by email. Denis Boisvert from the LNAH has not responded yet via email regarding a team sale which would have to be ratified by the league.
CFN will be updating the story as more of the sad and pathetic details unfold. If you have any information please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org CFN protects sources and doesn’t burn them as opposed to a certain other editor here in Cornwall.
