Raptors MLSE about to clean house?

Quote:
The next stage in the overhaul of Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment Ltd. is expected to claim several top executives, as president and chief executive officer Tim Leiweke shakes up the senior ranks of the organization, according to sources familiar with the matter.

The changes could be announced as early as Wednesday, and would follow the firing of Toronto Raptors general manager Bryan Colangelo and several bold pronouncements by Mr. Leiweke – including a planned Stanley Cup parade route.

A source Tuesday described the looming moves as “a fairly major housecleaning,” involving major names just below the level of CEO.

Mr. Leiweke said via e-mail it was “not appropriate to comment.” Another source with ties to MLSE, speaking on the condition their identity would not be disclosed, said: “There will be dismissals and responsibility changes.”

Good to see.

Have to wait and see what, if any, effects it has on the actual brands

Think this is a sign of tanking? Maybe the team wants a fresh start, but I doubt it.

Interesting that they're calling Colangelo's leaving a "firing" - previous reports said that he was stepping down. It's hard to tell if this was entirely a corporate firing, or if Colangelo was unhappy with his demotion and talking up his new role as director of PR or whatever simply another example of Colangelo being a great politician.
