If by “bringing big changes”, you mean stabilizing the property and attempting to get the Pro Circuit profitable, expanding its TV coverage dramatically, adding much needed sponsor revenue, expanding the Series level and breathing life back into the BFL’s, then yes let’s hope so...

Facing bankruptcy? Do you have any source for that claim at all?

Do you also not know it was his wife of nearly 60 years was terminally ill, became immobile and had succumb dementia?

May have been a mercy killing and I am not totally against that but it was still a murder/suicide. Whether there was bankruptcy coming or not $110 million is a lot of debt to leave if accurate.

If you’re going to source something you should at least give context. The headline is more than misleading and 110 mil in debt is nothing to someone who had the wealth of Jacobs. The probate process is messy when there is disputes within the group of heirs, that’s why the courts halted estate sales that one sibling tried to organize. The court even found that an audit of the financial affairs did not support bankruptcy or that Jacobs estate was broke.

I wouldn’t be surprised if they take a public relations hit because of it... a company putting their brand behind an unethical organization never works out for the brands image. Many others recognized that and pulled out all together or significantly reduced their brands exposure to anything MLF related for that very reason.

Please elaborate what companies pulled out or back? Just curious, was there any announcements by them as to why?

https://majorleaguefishing.com/about/sponsors/

Looks like MLF is still listing some big name sponsors

https://www.flwfishing.com/search

Looks like FLW is sporting some big names too.

I sure hope for their sake they don’t hear all the negativity and decide to run away from MLFLW......cause I think they are getting to game of bass fishing in front of millions of new and old viewers via CBS, Discovery Channel, Cable and live stream. Please don’t jinx it Big O....please!
