Guess what we ain't going anywhere deal with it!!!!! Hell let's go back to 24 or 21 teams and 2/3 of the teams making the playoffs teams that are 20 games below .500 with the 6th seed that's excitment right there

Boots closed with the Freeman group and had about a 28% stake. Are you forgetting that a court trustee had to dispense with his stake after his trial for fraud? Or that Freeman ran into some tax problems, and that Cigarran eventually took over the lead owner role?

Oh, and Leipold and AEG lent money to Boots to help close the sale.
