Agree this doesn't look like a buyout. Why would they, really? Why sink more into this investment, unless you have to, if you are one of the other owners.
While I agree the others likely don't have enough- individually- to buy him out, don't forget that Freeman probably has the shallowest pockets in the group, so this shouldn't be viewed as the big shot being squeezed by the small fish. Really, the other way around is more accurate. Cigarran is much more of a known commodity in the Nashville business (read healthcare services) community than Freeman, so I think if anything it's a boost there as well. My personal belief is that he will fit better with the nhl board of governors group, too.
