Potential Local Atlanta Thrashers Buyer May Still Remain, According To FOX 5 Report

UPDATE: It's filmmaker Stephen Rollins. Nothing to see here.

Buck Lanford of Fox5 Sports says he spoke with an individual whose story directly contradicts Ken Rodriguez's interview with Michael Gearon. His story will be broadcast Thurday night on Fox5 on the Edge, with the full story to come Friday. According to Lanford's Facebook page, this potential owner apparently casts himself as being very serious - but the current owners disagree:

On my way back from an exclusive interview with a man who is still interested in buying the Thrashers and keeping them in Atlanta, but no one seems to take him seriously. You'll hear from him tonight on @FOX 5 Atlanta on the Edge. The full story tomorrow.

But remember, no local buyers want to keep the team here. All options are exhausted. So sayeth the Atlanta Spirit.
