Does anybody here think that Joe's latest moves are mandated by the committee to sell the team? Seems initially the team was on the market for a while and everything was in a holding pattern. Now with the team playing well, and the recent acquisition of Langer, it seems the mandate has changed.
Seems as though ownership wants to make a push in the playoffs to generate some revenue and perhaps increase the sale value of the team.
Looking at it from an ownership perspective - something few fans do - you can see how ownership would like to get a sale done for a franchise that's been on the market a long time.
With no buyers coming forward maybe this is there attempt to generate some interest around the team. A nice run in the playoffs would create a buzz around the team and increase revenues significantly. With renewed interest and a team that generates revenue instead of losing you might see a new buyer come forward.
Leads me to believe that the biggest motivating factor with this team right now is the sale and attracting a potential buyer.
