Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Dale,

It is very disappointing that someone of your stature and in your position is unable or unwilling to see what was unprofessional about Russ' post. I would hope that "[you] know it when [you]...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Dale,

I'm sorry that people call you unprofessional on your Facebook. I can't do anything about that. That said, I'm not sure what your Facebook has to do with Russ' post or our comments regarding...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Dane,

I'm sorry I wrote that. I was still riding a high from replying to Russell's post. I realized, just a little too late, that what I wrote was an inappropriate response to what you and many...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I hold CrossFit to a higher standard for exactly that reason; it IS NOT "business as usual". It is a fantastic organization built around a close-knit community of dedicated grandparents, working...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

wow. That escalated quickly. I'm not sure about your segue. Perhaps a new thread is in order? Or perhaps a phone call/email to HQ rather than a post on here?

It's not. Your unprofessional manner is swhat upsets me. I expect more from an official representative of CrossFit.

Lan,

No one is saying that these feelings aren't justified. I'm sure that those who put in countless hours over the last several months feel an enormous sense of relief and vindication; and...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I love CrossFit, it's affiliates, and the impact that CrossFit has on people's daily lives (including my own).

That said, I am embarrassed by this post. Why stoop to this level? I would have...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

I read that Coach was allowed to purchase Lauren's shares. So we get our CrossFit, Lauren gets her money, and Anthos gets to look for other investment opportunities. The only casualty: the last 68+...

Michael,

Good call. I should have googled his name rather than posting it on here. I didn't know there was a private message feature either, or else I would have sent the message directly to the...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Once the sale is complete, the new owner can do whatever they want. Let's say you have a collection of classic cars and decide to sell one to raise cash. I PROMISE you that I will be a "passive...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Chris,
Maybe it's time to take a break, my man. You are getting more wrong the more you write. Lets look at the facts:

1) Coach swore he'd never sell any part of Crossfit
2) Someone misunderstood...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Chris,

You are as wrong as you can be, man. Take a step back for a moment and think about about it.

Coach said, effectively, that not even one share of Crossfit is for sale, but then (you...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Careful, though, you make it sound like it wouldn't be contradictory for him to sell part of Crossfit. To quote coach, "There's nothing for sale, not one little sliver, ever, at any price."...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

It sounds like you are insinuating that Coach would sell shares to raise cash. That would definitely fly in the face of being "unbuyable". But, like I said above, I don't think that is what he is...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

This is a completely different situation. After reading the documents, it appears as though Coach is pursuing taking out a loan to buy Ms. Jenai's shares. The documents obviously indicate he has...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

Not true, Todd did. I merely pointed out that your statements and question were flawed.



I'll let Todd address that.

Not true. Please read the entire article, especially the next two paragraphs after the first you quoted.



By definition they can't, and nobody said or implied that they do.

Agreed. Unfortunately, there is a chance that the courts will decide that no matter how much input she had, she might walk away with 50% of the company. No matter how much of the company she is...

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

It's not a takeover; its 50%. It's a partnership; very different from a majority or minority stake.
