It isn’t just time for Richard Peddie to leave. It’s overtime.
He used to sell packaged goods and if anyone understands best before dates, it is him.
Peddie likes to point to all his successes — four professional sporting franchises under his watch, three television networks, the condos, office towers and sports bar that is Maple Leafs Square — and it has been a massive undertaking for the king of bafflegab.
As a businessman, he has been an immense success.
As a sportsperson, he has been a dismal failure.
In this instance, however, he has knocked a Deep Shot, clear over the stands in Right Field.
