Sabres name Quinn, DiPofi minority owners

http://www.buffalonews.com/sports/story/429869.html
Quote:
Managing Partner Larry Quinn and Chief Operating Officer Dan DiPofi have been granted minority ownership stakes in the Buffalo Sabres, owner B. Thomas Golisano announced today.

"This announcement marks the culmination of a process that really goes back to my original acquisition of the franchise in 2003," Golisano said in a statement released through the team. "Both Larry and Dan were instrumental with regard to my purchase of the Sabres and continue to be an important part of the organization's success today."
I was under the impression that Quinn was already a minority owner.

Note: there's a separate thread to discuss the Pominville negotiations also mentioned in the article.

No wonder the weather's been hot the last few days. Satan's been busy.

There go any hopes of BTG figuring out that Quinn is a meddlesome arse monkey and removing him from the picture.

Anyone seen my copy of "Becoming a Bazillionaire in four easy steps"?

I wouldn't be surprised if eventually Quinn becomes the majority owner when Golisano has to exit the Sabres so he can buy the Bills.

Ugh yeah... unfortunately that's a comparison I understand and could agree with.
At least Jerry Jones shells out money for his team... not so with Ballard and Wirtz... notorious penny pinchers they were...

Why would he have to do that? I would think cross-promotion could be a great thing. Maybe a nice deal on season tix to both teams?

Cross ownership of major league franchises is against NFL bylaws. I'm sure they'd give Golisano a temporary waiver as was done with Wayne Huizinga, but eventually he'd have to unload one of the teams.

1997
The rules governing cross-ownership were modified, permitting NFL club owners to also own teams in other sports in their home market or markets without NFL teams. The vote was 24-5 (one abstention) in favor of approval, March 11.

That's great. I wonder why Jeremy Jacobs always says it's not allowed when he's asked about buying the Bills? Obviously he hates us.

But that's a good thing.

Bruins-Bills would not be the same home market...consistent with bylaws...

But I agree that's a good thing.

You're an semi-old-timer, so you might be able to answer. Is Jeremy Jacobs related to Harry Jacobs who used to play for the Bills. And Chris Jacobs is Harry's son, correct?

Chris Jacobs is Jeremy's nephew. Harry Jacobs isn't related to them.
