AVP's chief kicked to the curb

by Jason Schock at 1:54 AM

Long-time head cheese of the AVP, Leonard Armato, has been reportedly fired from his post as CEO of the pro beach volleyball tour. COO Jason Hodell is replacing him.

Hans Stolfus:

Bottom line - They’re playing it as if Leonard wanted out on his own, and not the other way around. Which is bullshit. I know from an incredibly accurate source that Leonard spent all day trying to rally what’s left of his troops in an effort to petition for his position back.
Ouch-y-mama.

Read Hans' take on the matter, because I've had my head in the sand while working like a galley slave these past few weeks.

Armato was becoming a figurehead at the helm - ever since the end of last season. All his cronies had left, and he was left holding an empty (money) bag. His recent caustic comments about the AVP pulling-out of Long Beach this season did not help his cause. The last chapter of my book, "Order On The Court", ominously and accurately predicted this situation. And Holly is soon apt to follow his exit.
