Baisically you can have wonership stakes in upto 3 clubs as long as only one of the clubs is >10% stake and is less than 30%. If you are a director or president or whatever of a club, or have >30% stake you cannot have a stake in any other club.

Ok so the Browns example. The new owner still has his ownership in the Steelers and he is winding that up. Minority interests in teams aren't always easy to move. My guess is he will sell it to the other owners eventually IF this deal goes through.
