    You have to admit that this is perfect timing.

    It also (I believe ) airs at 10 PM ET. Usually shows like that air at the same time as they will say(for example) 10 PM ET and PT

    He was not!! But don't let the facts get in the way of a good anti-Bettman rant. That's what fraud is he lied to the NHL, his "partners" here, and mutiple banks.

    Greed can exist in anyone, titling this "American Greed" belies CNBC's "objectivism". I'd double and triple check any purported "facts" coming out of this.

    The program is produced by Kurtis Productions, not CNBC.

    no ****, greed can "come out of anywhere". The show is about the actions that lead to the financial crisis in the US, not some liberal nonsense about Americans being more greedy than anyone else.

    I guess you selectively forgot that DelBaggio was already a minority owner with the San Jose Sharks before he invested in Nashville.

    As an American Greed junkie (seen every episode) I thought it was OK. it was only a half slot which is typical for pieces which don't go into detail about beginnings and personal aspects and so on, and thats fine, but couple with the fact that the scheme wasn't impressive and there wasn't many characters to consider, it felt like it could have been 10 minutes instead of 23.

    regarding the actual circumstances, when did DelBaggio sell off his 2% in the sharks? and do any sharks or preds fans know of any "on-the-ground" involvement he had with the teams? eg. going to games, doing interviews/media, interacting with local fans, etc...

    Months before he was confirmed as owner with Nashville. (Bought out by other members of ownership group.)

    I recall seeing his name (along with other owners, including former SJ Mayor McEnery), but CEO/Pres/owner Jamison was the "ownership" face of the team.

    ok.

    something I didn't understand was why exactly he became the 2% owner of the sharks. what is the purpose of such a small stake? the team didn't have ownership troubles (at least I think not) so I don't really get it. it came across from the ep. as almost a social invitation by the ownership group instead of a business move.

    George Gund wanted to reduce his ownership stake, and that's when the partnership of a dozen folks was put together. (I'm blanking on the partnership name at the moment, Blue-something, maybe. They actually own SVSE which is the holding company for the Sharks, the AHL franchise, SAP Open, SVSE Merchandising, operate Sharks Ice facilities -- three in CA, one in MA, one under contraction in CA, etc.)

    AFAIK, Boots was asked to participate in the group due to his connection with Heritage Bank.

    In other words "oh yeah baby we checked him out, we asked him and he told us, what more could I do?"

    oh I dunno maybe look a little deeper, cross T's and dot I's, just like the big boys do it!

    Blast from the past, under the watchful eye of Gary the Entertainer


    he has though been able to get the league expanded to 30 teams, which is great for the game..I suppose though you have to sift through a lot of "fertilizer" before you get to the truffles underneath

    Can't help but think we're going to have this same conversation a couple of years from now about Matt Hulsizer...
