What They're Saying: Tim Leiweke

"I personally don't think Defoe will come back. I think if he doesn't want to be here, you get rid of him. My attitude if you want to be here and you want to buy into what we're doing, let's go. Roll up your sleeves and we'll fight together. And I will be there with you every day. If you don't want to be here, get the hell out of our way."

-- Tim Leiweke, president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, telling Ted Rogers School of Management students that English international Jermaine Defoe wants to leave the MLS club. (CBC)
