And just to point out for those that aren't familiar with the members of our current ownership group (not including DelBiaggio or Woo), they are all long-time (if not life-long) Nashville area residents. Do their business here, live here, and have ties throughout the community.

They would be committing career/character suicide if they sold to Balsillie. They would seriously need to get enough money and be disconnected enough emotionally from this area that they could take the blood money they would have to have received and move out of this entire region (out of state, out of the Southeast, etc) because they would never succeed here in business ever again.
