    Good question.

    The Glazers own another sports franchise other than the Bucs, albeit in England.

    Don't think so. It's only against the rules when the NFL owner owns a team in a market that has another NFL team. So, like with the Rams owner. He had to give up the Nuggets because the Bronco's are in that market. The O's and Ravens are in the same market. No conflict of interest.

    According to Paul Allens Wiki

    "Allen purchased the Seattle Seahawks NFL team in 1997 when former owner Ken Behring threatened to move the Seahawks to Southern California.[2] Allen was allowed to buy the team despite owning the NBA's Trail Blazers because Portland doesn't have an NFL team. (NFL rules prohibit team owners from either outright ownership or a majority share of another sports team outside its home market if they play in the same city as another NFL team.) He played a large part in the development of the new Seahawks' stadium, CenturyLink Field, although it was funded largely by tax revenue.[56]"
    Section 536
    Since 2002

    I think the bylaw is that they can't own other franchises in other markets. The Nationals playing in DC should take care of any conflicts with Snyder though I imagine he won't be pleased if it plays out that way.

    I'll believe it when I see it.

    Angelos is the type of negotiator who will not think twice about walking away from a deal if he's not getting what he wants. I hope it happens, but you guys who are excited now, brace yourselves for disappointment.

    If the deal hinges on the future of the tv rights, that's a wide gap.

    His definitions and arguments were so clear in his own mind that he was unable to understand how any reasonable person could honestly differ with him.

    I don't know, but according to Wiki, the Falcons owner almost bought the Braves, so it wouldn't appear so.

    ClarkHunt, the KC owner, also has a club in the MLS.

    Three NFL owners have EPL teams (Lerner - Browns/Aston Villa, Kroenke - Rams/Arsenal, Glazers - Bucs/Man Utd), but of course, EPl teams aren't American.

    If this happens I won't be able to contain myself. Until then, I'm trying hard (and mostly failing) to not get my hopes up.

    I am 100% with you!

    I'm telling myself this is way to damn good to be true. And trying to remain as calm as possible to the deal is stone.
