Leipold takes a shot at Preds Fans

Doing some research on Liarpold, found this article from a couple of weeks ago...

http://www.bizjournals.com/twincitie...on.html?page=2

Quote:
Leipold ultimately was awarded the Nashville Predators expansion team in 1997. He enjoyed the experience, but opted to sell in 2007 after coming to the conclusion that Nashville was a great town, but not a great hockey town. "After the third period, everyone staying in the their seats, waiting for the fourth quarter to start," he said.

I read that a few weeks ago, too. I didn't think anything of it, because there is some validity to what he said. The fan bas now compared to then is much different and much more educated. I reality, why do we care what he has to say? No need to get butt hurt everytime he says some thing.

I wouldn't say the fanbase in 2007 was uneducated at all. And even if it was true, there's no reason at all to take a shot at a fanbase who gave him his start and forked over millions to this guy over the years. If he wanted to take a shot at corporate Nashville for not jumping on board, that's one thing, but don't go after the individual fans... again

same guy behind the "jack and jill fan" line of thinking.

Also the dumb donkey that signed two guys to huge contracts and then claiming small markets have a hard time surviving. Learn how to run a business fool.

The Preds should use this as motivation when and if they play the Wild.

The Preds fans should use this as motivation when and if the Wild come to Nashville. Start booing them when they come on the ice for the warm up session. Keep it up every time they have the puck. Even Leipold will figure it out!

I didn't say that nor would I. I just think that it's a smarter fanbase now than 2007.

The dude has no idea what he's doing. He talks when he shouldn't all the time. Even his hometown people hate him. He has never ran a successful business. His first year with the Wild ended their sellout streak. Ryan Suter is already mouthing about him.

If not for marrying the grandaughter of Sam Curtis Johnson, Liarpold would be a failure.

Funny how the team here seems to be doing just fine since Liarpold jetted. Good riddance and he will crap the bed in Minny soon enough. Let's just sit back and watch.

Semi-related: Suter is voicing quite a bit of unhappiness with Leopold and the contract rollback situation. Watch him get traded

Quote:
"It's disappointing. If you can't afford to (sign contracts), then you shouldn't do it," Suter told ESPN The Magazine on Friday. "(Leipold) signed us to contracts. At the time he said everything was fine. Yeah, it's disappointing. A couple months before, everything is fine, and now they want to take money out of our contracts that we already signed."

Ryan Suter softens stance

"I thought a lot about since what I said. I don't question (Wild owner) Craig Leipold and Minnesota with regards to negotiating our contracts in good faith. I don't question that," Suter told the newspaper. "It's just frustrating. We just want to play. We support Don (Fehr) in what he's doing. Obviously, you sign a contract and you want to hold true to that."

Already having to retract his words. I think someone is really going to miss the relative anonymity of Nashville. Well, you wanted to be the bigshot--welcome to the world of media coverage.

I think Suter opened his mouth and then saw a check signed by captain owner ********* for 10 million and remembered he liked his situation

We just want to play and we support Don Fehr. A contradiction if I've ever seen one.

He started out as the owner of a telemarking firm. Then he ran Rainfair. They made raincoats and shoes/boots for Postal employees and campers. He sold that and the company that purchased it shut down the Racine palnt. The company had been there since 1888. The employees were dumped without any severance. That caused hard feelings. Leipold retained ownership of the building, but had no more tenant, so he was also double-crossed by the new owner.

Craig Leipold sat around with his thumb up his butt for nine years, waiting for the community to worship him for bringing them an average hockey team.

I checked, you are correct, Helen is the granddaughter of S C Johnson Sr. and the daughter of Sam Jr. She is the great great granddaughter of the original Samuel Curtis Johnson, who bought the company in 1886.
