Shawn Hunter is now officially the CEO and president of Chivas USA. I'll post more thoughts on this later as I'm not able to put audio and pictures up right now.
I came away from the roundtable-type press conference feeling more positive about the franchise than I had going in. Shawn Hunter has a proven track record and knows what it takes to sell tickets. The team on the field is doing it so now it's up to the front office to follow suit. Hunter's got the reins now and he's committed to Chivas USA.
Jaime Cardenas of the LA Times asked Hunter specifically about staying at Home Depot Center, which I think is something we all wanted to know. From what Hunter said - and again I'll post some of the audio later - it sounded like they were in it for the long haul. Sorry, Galaxy fans - they're not going anywhere.
I don't know, though. This club has so many issues - both positive and negative - that you can talk to someone you really care about for like an hour on the topic and not come away with any real conclusions.
In the end, only time will tell whether this club can make it off the field. But I like the position its in right now.
