According to BoxscoreNews.com, Jacksonville Sharks managing partner Jeff Bouchy has released a statement denying rumors that MÖTLEY CRÜE singer Vince Neil is to relocate the Arena Football team to Las Vegas if he does become part owner of the franchise.The statement reads as follows: "There have been several reports in different media outlets over the past several days regarding Vince Neil of MÖTLEY CRÜE becoming an owner of the Jacksonville Sharks and possibly relocating the team to the Las Vegas market. "Simply stated, the Jacksonville Sharks are neither relocating to the Las Vegas market nor planning to ever leave our great city of Jacksonville. "We are currently in talks with Vince Neil about becoming a minority owner of the Jacksonville team, but those discussions do not include moving the team to another market, and as of now, neither Vince Neil nor Rockstar Investment Group, Inc. own any part of the Jacksonville Sharks. "We have been in discussions with Vince Neil over the past several months. If a deal is reached, he will own a minority interest and will help us elevate the Sharks brand on a local and national level and we, in turn, will help educate his group about the great sport of arena football and all aspects of its business. Vince Neil has aspirations to create a future expansion team in his current home of Las Vegas, Nevada, which has led to the confusion with the media. "If we are fortunate enough to have a rock legend join our ownership group, it could happen as early as this week. "We have the best fans in the AFL and will continually strive to make the Sharks an elite franchise in the League. I personally apologize for any confusion these reports have caused the Shark Nation family."
