The likelihood of any of them actually happening is small.
But a sports league taking the unprecedented step of not only trying to force an owner to sell for a lesser amount by trying to claim eminent domain (essentially) over a business that has nothing tying it legally to that market isn't? Or a league going so far as to try and legally remove an owner using a "best interest of the league" defense (which has never been done, not even for Shinn) is somehow expected and normal?
