D-Day for 'Gades

PERRY LEFKO -- Toronto Sun

Barring a sudden twist, the troubled Ottawa Renegades franchise is expected to be put out of its misery today.

The Canadian Football League executive and the member teams are convening in Toronto to discuss the Renegades' fate -- and it's pointing toward at least a one-year hiatus.

While some groups stepped forward to take over the team from principal owner Bernie Glieberman and Bill Smith, they either didn't meet the criteria outlined by the league or weren't willing to take control until next season. Rather than rush the process with a new owner or operating the team, the league is expected to go with eight solid teams this season and conduct a formal bid process to secure ownership for '07.
