LEIWEKE LAYING IT ON THE LINE: In Toronto, Dave Feschuk reports Leiweke yesterday "threw an employees-only celebration of his company’s future at the Air Canada Centre." He "promised he was done hastening big-named exits like the ones inflicted" on former Raptors President Bryan Colangelo and former MLSE COO Tom Anselmi. Leiweke also repeated the "vow he’s been spouting since he arrived in one of North America’s bleakest athletic landscapes: MLSE ... will make it a primary mission to build victorious clubs to match its vats of lucre." Leiweke said, "We want to stop the spin and the B.S. and just say, 'Let’s go win some things'" (TORONTO STAR, 9/12).
