The Major Investor In The Coyotes?

from David Shoalts of the Globe and Mail, 

The Tohono O’Odham Nation, which is in a court battle with the City of Glendale over the native tribe’s bid to build a resort and casino adjacent to the suburban community, has emerged as a key player in the potential sale of the Phoenix Coyotes.

A source familiar with developments in Greg Jamison’s attempts to buy the financially troubled NHL team said the Tohono O’Odham will be his major investor (whether as a partner or lender has yet to be revealed). The tribe could hold as much as a 50-per-cent interest if Jamison is able to complete the $170-million (U.S.) purchase.

If true and successfully completed transaction, then “Huzzah!” for the Tohono O’Odham Nation.

But, yeah, whatever…
