Them forcing the affiliates to sell what they want them to sell is a bad maneuver this I agree with. Because one thing is for sure affiliates are pretty much left to their own devices as to how they run and it seems to work for most affiliates.
Your statement about it being taken out of context implies you either think the person(s) who listened to it and are stating it now are either too dumb to correctly interpret what Kelly was saying, or are intentionally misrepresenting to the CF community. Which is it?

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+ pages of this thread.

Re: Stop Anthos from Taking over CrossFit

As of yesterday morning I own 100% of CrossFit Inc. stock.

I want to thank my staff, our lawyers, the affiliates, and the entire CF community for rallying to our common defense.

This was a harrowing experience that pulled critical staff from their normal duties for six months and cost millions of dollars in legal fees.

Staffers not enjoined directly in the battle kept at the helm and grew the company to absorb all of our legal fees and we paid cash for the airplane. Today we stand in the best financial shape in company history.
