The Players, under the management of the Executive Committee, has been "losing nearly $3 million over the last nine years."
"At a March 14th meeting, the Executive Committee voted unanimously to retain John Martello as Executive Director although an overwhelming majority of attendees voted to dismiss him."
"No one will donate money or services with the present Executive Committee in power."
The club needs a new senior management team now.
