Dave Checketts Puts Blues, Scottrade Center Lease Up For Sale
Published March 17, 2011
THE TIME HAS COME: Checketts yesterday said, "Where I've been for the last couple months is trying to make a deal with TowerBrook. It couldn't happen. ... We weren't able to make a deal. I don't want to get any more specific than that." Checketts claimed to "have lost money in the first three years he controlled the team," but said yesterday that the Blues are "no longer losing money, and that the city is a viable market." There is "no timetable for a sale," which also includes the AHL Peoria Rivermen (ST. LOUIS POST-DISPATCH, 3/17).
