lol, how much would it really cost to run a development camp? A few hundred thousand?
Stan already owns 40% of the Rams, he doesn't have for fork over a lot more to become Majority owner. I know this fanbase needs one thing to latch onto and obsessively complain about, but this one is really pushing the envelope.
Every year the guy invests millions of dollars into something. He's well diversified. Nobody ever batted an eye when he forked over $131 million to build his soccer park for the Rapids. Nobody lost their mind when he bought 18,000 shares of Arsenal. Why freak out now when he's trying to buy the remaining 60% of the Rams? I can't stress enough that he and his wife are worth 22 billion combined. They both want the Rams. The few hundred million it will take to complete the deal is like 20 bucks to you or I. It's NO BIG DEAL! If there was anything worth spending money on, we would be allowed to do it. Why spend just to spend money though? Let the Avs brass decide what's right for the team.
Why would he drop money on a team that he most likely will not be an owner of in the future?
Unless ownership IS in fact transferred to his wife.
The NFL isn't going to say no to a guy of Stan's stature. He has a plan in place to shuffle his holdings here in Denver to his son, iirc.
Either way, he'll be calling the shots, and there's no way he gets rid of the teams that occupy not only his building (the can) but also his home here in Denver. He'll work it out, he's just that kind of guy.
