I just noticed this yesterday in the article about Ron Terwilliger looking for new investors. Maybe it had been there all along, or maybe it was edited in later:
Terwilliger has relocated to New York and has had unspecified changes that prevent him from being actively involved with the team and in the Atlanta community, according to Hope.
Didn't the Dream meet at Terwilliger's house this year for a dinner before the season started? Didn't I see Terwilliger at the Dream/Liberty game? (I might have been hallucinating that last one.) Suddenly, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution implies that Ron Terwilliger isn't living in Atlanta. (That's what a "relocation" sounds like to me - when I visit my mother in Kentucky I'm not "relocating".)
Furthermore there's that "...has had unspecified changes that prevent him from being actively involved with the team and in the Atlanta community". Talk about your investigative reporting; that sentence just asks a bunch of questions that it doesn't have the courage to answer. If he's no longer actively involved, then how much involvement does Terwilliger have?
"Unspecified changes?" Like what changes? Is there some WNBA clause that prevents Terwilliger from being involved with the Dream? Does this mean that Bill Bolen now has final say for what goes on with the franchise? Or is this just the Atlanta Journal-Constitution misunderstanding things again?
Josh Bagriansky, we need some of your skill. You're a paid journalist for Score Atlanta, you should be able to figure some of this stuff out for us.
