The best thing I can see happening right now is shotgunning the pitch EVERYWHERE and seeing who acts on it first. We're not selling the IP, we're not buying the IP. We're just willing customers looking for someone to give our money to.
A couple of reasons, off the top of my head:
1) Because we need to focus our efforts. If we're asking one company to consider buying COH, we can ask everyone here to support the pitch with letters, emails, postcards etc. By aiming at multiple locations at once, we dilute our efforts. A company won't necessarily take notice of say, 20 letters asking them to buy, but hundreds are harder to ignore. And if people have already approached one company, and they've received one or two letters of support, it's more likely that if we send them the pitch, they might just go 'pft, those guys again?' and ignore it.
2) If just complicates and confuses matters if our efforts and energy is split. People don't know which people have been 'officially' approached and who they should be throwing their weight/support/letters behind. It's kinda like everyone screaming into the dark, but in different directions. At least with Disney, all the shouting is aimed in one particular direction.
3) We run the risk of accidentally starting a bidding war if three or four or more companies sit up and take notice at once.
4) We gave 'first refusal' to Disney. Disney's a big, slow beast of a company. It's a bit rude to give them first refusal to someone, not give them the time to respond, and then start asking another company to buy it. Or just running up to guys in the street, grabbing them by the lapels and going "BUY OUR GAME!"
We're open to ideas one who we could be sending the document to, or focusing our efforts on, but we just want to have everyone on the same page at once, to give us a greater chance of success
