He definitely seems to be a good manager in the area of sports business and marketing. No indication that he has ever had any involvement with weightlifting but maybe that doesn't matter. I see he came up with the idea of a fluorescent hockey puck which was an idea mocked nationwide in Canada - will there be any gimmicks in weightlifting?
Shaun, I was very impressed with Rick and have high hopes. When asked specifically what he would say to the statement that he does not know anything about weightlifting he said that he would humbly agree, but the CEO of AT&T does not necessarily know anything about line work. My take is that he is a business guy, not a weightlifting guy. But, we have plenty of them. We need business help. He spent a good amount of time at this years nationals riding the shuttle back and forth listening to what people were saying about the sport. Only time will tell. Mike
