If the Canes grab Nash, even if it costs the farm, they're competing.
Thanks for the info. New owners with fresh capital always helps. I can't imagine that a TV deal in that market is having a huge impact. Columbus and the Raleigh/Durham area I believe are somewhat comparable, so it might have some impact but very small. Karmanos opening the checkbook is good for you. Now that it's not all his scratch on the line, he's going for the gold. Again good for the Canes.
