why would Frank and Andy’s father, Johny - a former pro cyclist himself - acquiesce so readily to the collapse of the Leopard-Trek squad when he has vehemently resisted any advances by Bruyneel towards his two sons in the past? The last thing Johny Schleck wants to see is his sons fall into the clutches of Johan Bruyneel.
That's an interesting quote regarding the dynamics of this situation, as I had never previously heard of friction between anyone in the Schleck camp and Bruyneel, especially since Andy has had strong praise for Armstrong in the past. Does anyone else know of animosity between Jonny and JB?

Anyway, shows why I always opposed this kind of set-up with an entity setting up a team instead of a team manager. Cervelo showed the same, still not sure about BMC in the long run.

You need a DS that will look for all ways to secure the team and who has the ultimate power in the team.

Who would you rather be with if you have a mortgage and all that: Gianetti or Becca? One will always fight for his team as his team is not dependent on one source of money and will always strive to continue in spite of (frankly, huge) difficulties. When Gianetti stops looking for a solution, you know he has done his utmost to secure a future.

Its not the same on Leopard.

How do you know this? I haven't seen it reported yet which management will be part of this set-up except they appear to be operating on Leopards licence.
