My concern was that he didn't want the Most Interesting Man to upstage him and make him look bad in comparison. Maybe though, to be fair, he simply didn't think Ellison would be a good owner. Maybe Cohan really tried to do the right thing for the fans. Or maybe for his employees.
As this is ready to post, Ratto is mentioned on tv saying the same thing, that Cohan didn't want to sell to Ellison and that we won't know for awhile why.
In any case, the new owners are local, seem committed, appear to be real fans of the team and know it well. Probably will be a fine ownership group and I am drinking Wild Turkey as a personal statement. What a sacrifice.
My friend was telling me that he read articles about Ellison's bid to up Lacob and Guber was submitted too late. I'm not sure when bidding was supposed to end or if there was a time limit to outbid the current bid, but it seems Ellison just missed out. Hard to say that Cohan would turn down more money if Ellison had offered it (I remember reading a post saying that Ellison was saying he was the highest bidder).
I'll see if I can get a link of that article my friend read.
