    "I've shown more than enough financial backing, with cash or securities, to give comfort to the entire board of governors," Starke said in a telephone interview. "There's no question about our financial ability, there are no issues financially at all.

    "I've emailed it directly to Randy Ambrosie with a couple of changes in the term sheet."

    The CFL wasn't immediately available for comment.

    Starke, 35, is the chair of Hampstead Private Capital and has acted as a consultant, adviser and/or director to more than 15 publicly listed companies.

    According to a league source, Montreal natives Peter and Jeffrey Lenkov head up a partnership that's currently doing its due diligence on the Alouettes. Peter Lenkov, 55, is a producer in Hollywood while Jeffrey Lenkov, 53, is a lawyer practising in California.

    The source was granted anonymity because he's not authorized to speak on the deal.

    I am wondering if this is leaking because it is a done deal. He's in Edmonton for some unspecified reason, and he had nothing about the Als on his Twitter until cryptically posting a photo of the Als today.

    Until TSN posted their story, there was no public indication the Lenkov brothers were looking to buy the team. Both sides kept a lid on it pretty good. If they kept it quiet all that time, it seems like it wouldn't leak now unless things were nearly done.

    Chances are that his brother would be the more directly involved of the two owners, given his sport law experience.

    I don't want an owner who wants to run the Als. I want owners who hire the right people and let the football people run the team.

    The good news is that Peter Lenkov knows how to reboot successful franchises (he's the TV producer behind the Hawaii Five-0, MacGyver, and Magnum PI reboots). More good news is that he isn't spouting off like an idiot on Twitter like Guzzo.

The news often reports the simplified version, but sometimes the deals have more to them than that.

    I find it more likely that someone is spewing BS about the situation. Given the tire fire going on with the team, it is so believable that it would be true that it gets passed on by more and more people (like I just did).
    IMO, some groups are passing, but watching from the sidelines and willing to come back in once the price comes down more. There won't be any bidding wars for Kavis' services.
