ROSS PEROT JR. TO BECOME PART OWNER OF THE STARS?
Published May 11, 1995
An NHL source says that Ross Perot Jr. is negotiating with Stars Owner Norm Green to invest more than $30M in the team and become as much as a 50% owner, according to this morning's DALLAS MORNING NEWS. Green reportedly "needs the potential cash infusion to keep the team financially stable" and "aggressive" on free agents. The source also said that a smaller group of limited partners is being sought to buy in -- including former Cowboy Roger Staubach and golfer Fred Couples. Staubach has confirmed that he has been approached about investing, however Couples "denies any involvement." Negotiations continue over how much Perot would own and who would have controlling interest. According to the league source, though, "little would change in the Stars' daily operations," now run by Green and Stars President Jim Lites (Terry Egan, DALLAS MORNING NEWS, 5/11).
