CORNWALL Ontario – Who owns the Cornwall River Kings? According to LNAH league President Brock Frost still does in spite of the team’s press release this weekend.
One league insider stated that the League are frustrated with the circus of what’s happened this season under owner Brock Frost who took shots at previous ownership as the reason why the team had struggled in the past.
The release made clear that Mr. Frost is the sole owner at this stage for any any changes to occur that a submission would have to be reviewed by the Board of Governors.
The release points out that Mr. Frost has agreed to respect the league by laws.
Brock Frost nor Darren Madden responded to this story. Attendance for the River Kings has plummeted since rumblings of the sale leaked and then Mr. Frost issued his release. The team’s accountant quit the team over what she termed ethical issues with new owner Darren Madden.
In spite of the release from the River Kings the LNAH stated that no request for an ownership change has been submitted.
Fans have been expressing their own frustrations feeling that the purchase of the team was a publicity stunt to help Mr. Frost get elected to council. Several contractors to the team are also upset, especially as some have been notified that their services will no longer be used which will cause them financial hardship.
Original release en francais:
