wow, this liverpool saga just wont go away. i wonder if he would still be the owner of the habs had he not gotten involved with liverpool fc

Its also interesting to see the polarizing views of Gillete. Habs fans generally loved him, while liverpool fans want to crucify him.

Toward the end, I think Liverpool fans hated Hicks more than Gillett, if that's any consolation for Gillett.

He declared bankruptcy, was a leverage artist, did great by the Habs, so many shades of Gillett.

That's the infamous loan we had heard about and was probably the beggining of the end as a Habs owner. And he didn't pay it. Wow. I guess Liverpool is costing him more that we think. The guy went bankrupt once. Could do it again. Remember: he dabbles with other people's money, never his. That his secret.

He is a gambler. Sometimes you win big, sometimes you lose big

At 19% interest I wouldn't pay them back either. That's robbery whichever way you look at it. I'd hold out and pay back the capital in a settlement years from now.

lol I was just going to post this, but GG signed this amendment and agreed to it. GG also did some odd things with his ski holding company, he's an odd guy.
