          David W. Checketts and Sports Capital Partners brought Major League Soccer to Utah on July 14, 2004, making Salt Lake City home to the League's 12th team, one which begins play in April, 2005.

          Checketts founded Sports Capital Partners (SCP) in September 2001, and serves the Chairman of the growing consulting and investment service firm for sports teams and media assets which in 2002 acquired SportsWest Communications. Checketts serves concurrently as Chairman for SportsWest Communications, a syndicated broadcaster of college sports for the Mountain West and the Western Athletic Conferences (NCAA).

          The 48-year-old Checketts created his sports media companies after a successful ten-year career at Madison Square Garden (MSG). As President and Chief Executive Officer for seven years, Checketts oversaw all operations of one of the most powerful sports and entertainment companies globally, including the "World's Most Famous Arena" and its three sports franchises, the New York Knickerbockers of the NBA, the New York Rangers of the NHL, and the New York Liberty of the WNBA - along with the award winning MSG Network and FOX Sports Network. In 1997, while at his post, Checketts took on the ambitious acquisition and comprehensive restoration of New York's historic Radio City Music Hall. Although MSG, under his leadership, was awarded with many accomplishments such as being named Arena of the Year for six straight years, he takes most pride in the establishment of the MSG "Cheering for Children" foundation which created after school programs for thousands of New York City school children.

          Checketts began his career at Madison Square Garden as President of the New York Knicks in March 1991. In the four seasons he served as President, the team finished twice in first place, made it to the Eastern Conference Finals twice and captured the Eastern Conference Champion Title in 1994. During this time, the team set records in attendance, ratings and revenues including setting the all-time sellout streak of 460 games at The Garden. Forbes named the Knicks the most valuable franchise in the NBA.

          In his role as Governor of the Knicks (NBA), Rangers (NHL) and Liberty (WNBA), Checketts was instrumental in all three leagues development and mission. For the NBA, Checketts was part of both the Planning Committee and the Labor Relations Committee which including being a lead negotiator in the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) in 1999. For the WNBA, he was one of the founding partners and served on the League's Operating Committee.

          Prior to joining the Knicks, Checketts spent one year as General Manager of NBA International, working with NBA Commissioner David Stern on building a presence for the league in broadcasting and licensing around the world.

          In 1983, Checketts was named President and General Manager of the Utah Jazz. At 28 years old, he became the youngest chief executive in the history of the NBA. During his six-year tenure, the team captured two Midwest Division titles and enjoyed a multi-million dollar economic turnaround.

          Dave Checketts did his undergraduate studies at the University of Utah and earned his MBA from Brigham Young University (BYU) in 1981, where he graduated with top honors. Upon completion of his studies, he joined the Boston-based consulting firm, Bain & Company.

          Checketts is on the Board of Directors of JetBlue Airways, Citadel Communications, Republic Mortgage and Cablecom based in Switzerland. He plays an active role with each company, serving as the Chairman of the Audit Committee for Citadel and Chairman of the Compensation Committee for JetBlue.

          Checketts resides in Connecticut with his wife Deb. They are the parents of six children.[/b][/quote]

                        Neutral.

                        We'll see if Checketts buys into the Sauer line.
                        And, frankly, it has never occured to me that "winning" a debate is important, or that I should be hurt when someone like Airshark or kah, among others (for whom winning a pseudo debate or declaring intellectual superiority over invisible others is obviously very important) ridicule me.

                            At least that means they are staying.
