Sommet Group

UPDATE 11:17am CDT - According to various tweets and a report in the Tennessean, FBI Agents raided the headquarters of the Sommet Group this morning... wow! Now I really am surprised! I am waiting for the inevitable Globe and Mail story on how this reflects badly on Nashville as a hockey market...

Can anyone tell me more about this? What exactly is the Sommet Group involved in? I got this from Paul Mcann's blog on hockey buzz.

Brian Whitfield is scum. As much as I'm glad to know he is likely through and headed to prison...I feel very badly for the numerous small businesses that he has irrepairably damaged and those that will likely be forced into bankruptcy due to his criminal activity.

Sentencing guidelines for financial crimes like this are rarely long enough and can never undo the damage done to the community. I'm thankful that the Predators severed ties with this group last season, but know our name will still be dragged through the mud somehow as a result.

Scum. It's the only way to describe a man that would ruin so many peoples lives in this fashion...

leave it to the titansean to have in the first sentence "name that adorned the predators hockey arena". they do know that that name was also used for every concert, or event for that matter, that came in there. it isnt just the home of the predators...its the home of entertainment in nashville. just something i noticed.

I'll bet I can guess the angle: This + Boots = "pattern of corruption" and/or "corrupt franchise".

Reading Tennessean articles is like listening to the death throws of a man you don't like sinking in quicksand.
