An undisclosed source has revealed to me why Greg Jamison is so loath to reveal who his investors are.
Have you ever heard of a little show called Shark Tank? According to my source this show is the reason why Jamison cannot (and will not) reveal his investors.
The story goes that Jamison contacted a shark, supposedly Mark Cuban, just to talk shop. My guess would be to talk about what it’s like to own a team, turn it around and put butts in seats. During the course of the phone call (or calls?), the Shark suggested that Jamison come on the show, merely as a joke. As the two continued to talk the joke became serious and next thing you know Jamison is standing in an ABC studio presenting the Coyotes to Mark Cuban, Daymond John, Kevin O’Leary, Barbara Corcoran and Robert Herjavec.
I am guessing it looked much like this from Jamison’s point of view. Image taken from here.
Guests are not allowed to talk about their appearance on Shark Tank until the episode airs. My source did not tell me which, if any, of the Sharks invested but in my opinion the only viable one is Mark Cuban. Kevin is not going to invest unless he is guaranteed a big payday. Daymond tends to stick to what he knows (fashion). Barbara is a wild card; she may have invested. Robert is another wild card. He likes tech businesses (obviously) but if he is excited by an idea or product will throw his hat in the ring. Maybe we got a Cuban/Barbara/Robert combo. It’s killing me not knowing who invested!
Screen garab of email I received.
According to ABC the next episode is Friday, February 1 but the description doesn’t say anything about a potential NHL owner appearing. The 1st would have been perfect timing with the COG lease deadline of January 31st.
I guess we sit and wait for the episode to air.
You Tell Me: Which Shark, or Sharks, do you think is/are most likely to invest in the Coyotes? Will you tune in when the episode airs?
