Argos sale not done yet

The Argos likely will not be sold to David Braley on Wednesday after all.

The Canadian Football League board of governors is meeting in West Palm Beach, Fla., and it appears that a vote on the sale has been taken off Wednesday's agenda.

That's because the sale, to Braley from David Cynamon and Howard Sokolowski, has not yet happened.

"Little things in the deal keep changing, so they are not expecting anything (on Wednesday)," a league source said.

But the source indicated the deal has not fallen through -- just that it is not done.

The league was hoping for a resolution on the matter during the meetings, and it still could some on Thursday. Neither Cynamon nor Sokolowski are at the meetings. The Argos are being represented by team president Bob Nicholson.

If Braley walks away, the expectation is Cynamon and Sokolowski will keep the team. Braley owns the B.C. Lions, and CFL commissioner Mark Cohon has said in the past that he would not have a problem with one man owning two teams. There's nothing in the CFL's constitution that guards against such a situation.

Meanwhile, the search for a coach continues, and the Argos have received permission to interview Hamilton Tiger-Cats defensive co-ordinator Greg Marshall. Trouble is, Marshall is high on the Winnipeg Blue Bombers' coaching list and already has been interviewed by the Bombers.
