So Tiger makes his dosh from sportswear, what type of sportswear is it and could we end up with a kit deal next season with the company he is involved in?

I was a guest at Wimbledon on Saturday (one of my customers is a director there) and had a conversation with Tiger and a guy with him called Jack (sorry missed the surname but begins with a 'S'). After some general OUFC conversation I gently asked him what business he was in and he replied 'textiles'.

I followed up, asking if he was a manufacturer, exporter, middleman for brands, etc but couldn't get any information other than 'textiles' before Jack moved him on. All very friendly but not giving anything away.

If Myles information is correct then Jack attending games (fairly obviously involved somewhere) is pretty concerning.

I certainly wouldn't be investing if I'd seen us play recently.

I guess it depends what he wants/believes he has to gain from his investment.

The missing factor is under what auspices. We don't know if it's as an investor, potential investor or just a friend. Something we'll never easily be able to work out.

So we can add 'sweatshop factory owner' to 'slum landlord', 'asset stripping hotdog vendor' and 'pension stealing media mogul' to the list of occupations held by OUFC Chairmen? Mein Gott!

Shirt sponsor next season may be Primark then? :eek:

You know that Jorge has got it in for you, right?

That's cleared that up then!

Why does the internet provide no clue as to what businesses he has/has been involved with, except Reading?

On Twitter, Tiger follows Peter Decorte, who is CEO of Tong Siang Co Ltd, part of YEH Group, http://www.yeh-group.com/.
Looking at some of Peter's old tweets, it seems they supply the USA and Portugese national football team, amongst others.
Whether or not Tiger is involved in YEH Group, I don't know.
