I received a lot of positive response to my "Point After" column yesterday that called for the front office of the Carolina RailHawks to be more transparent and honest with its fans. It was titled "Now's time to be open."
Apparently I wasn't alone in my thoughts that the RailHawks have been more shady than forthright with the Triangle soccer community about its state of affairs.
You could possibly add Cary mayor Harold Weinbrecht to the list.
In his blog dated Jan. 16, Weinbrecht states the following:
"Staff also sent us an email about the Carolina Railhawks. The majority owner has dissolved the existing company and is in the process of creating another company with different owners. Staff is preparing to discuss a new lease with the new owners. The new ownership will be announced in a press conference on Tuesday."
"Tuesday" in this case, means Jan. 18. Today makes nine days that the RailHawks have done anything but hold a press conference to announce its new ownership. In fact, we don't know if there will be a team in Cary next year. Or if that team would be called the RailHawks. Or if they would have a sanctioned league to play in.
But at least they have a schedule. That's not putting the carriage before the horse at all.
