Comcast may buy Disney

This is simply amazing. Comcast buying Disney.

So I guess that means the Flyers would own the Ducks? Is that allowed?

Anyway, I guess it puts to rest any speculation about who's team has the wealthiest owners.

heres another..

:lol:

I'd imagine this would be contingant on the selling of the Ducks to that local investor.

It's kinda of a hostile takeover bid since Eisner wants no part of negotiations. Thus cementing Comcast's place as the most evil corporation in the world.
Blacking out ESPN games if it's on Comcast, refusing to be part of DirecTV, giving 6 million to Jeff Hackett...haha

My understanding from living in Ottawa and the sale of this team last year is that the same person cannot own two teams. There was talk of someone who owned Dallas wanted to buy the sens. I think it was Dallas I don't remember. Anyway it is not allowed but like any other situation there are ways around it. His wife can buy the team.

Comcast is getting one step closer to world domination. Where is James Bond when you need him? The Ducks are already up for sale if I am not mistaken, and they'll have to be sold if this goes through (once all the processes have gone through), because Comcast wouldn't sell the Flyers over the Ducks.

everybody thought the same thing when Time Warner bought AOL and they've lost billions since then.

If that happened, does that mean we could to take the best of the Flyers and the Ducks and make the Philadelphia F***ers?

Uhh, not unless you want to be supenaded (man, I wish these boards had spell checkers) by the government for, well, inappropriate language being used near children.

In all seriousness, this would open many doors in the future for the NHL and the Flyers. Ed Snider moves one step closer to world domination being the chairman of two big time professional sports teams, chairman of Comcast, who would own Disney and ABC, ESPN, ABC Family among others.

For the Flyers, I would think it is very possible they become the Braves or Notre Dame Football and get their own national television contract simply because they can, since the Braves are on TBS, the Flyers (and/or Sixers) for that matter could either show games on another station, nationally (which I don't know why Ed Snider wouldn't want to do), to put them on a station they already own (ABC Family).

Comcast probably could also acquire their own national News, Entertainment and Sports stations (if they would take over/rename ABC Family and ESPN)
