He just invoked it today....it was announced within the hour by Pete Weber on 104.5 in Nashville.

Craig is bound and determined to get his money out of this.
I would also not put it past him to renew the agreement past June 30th since the board won't vote on it by then, no matter what rumblings of this "local group" leaks.

Craig has to almost, if not be more pissed at the local Nashville business community, than at Basillie and all his Hamilton plans, for not coming to the plate earlier by buying tickets and offering to become minority owner before all this transpired, despite his pleas both public and private.

Relying on Craig pulling the deal, the spineless Bettman, and the BOG who all stand to have their franchise value elevate dramatically does not give me great hope right now....and with the fact that a local group is even talking about putting together a bid together if Basillie's bid fails...all we can do is wait and hope.
