The point still remains that it is an investment worth looking in to.
Anybody who honestly thinks this is a ploy to get a stadium is either really naive or an idiot. No offense meant, but unless we're talking the NBA or NHL (where there are so many state of the art arenas around the country ready made for relocation) it's not happening, and the league can deny the move.
Remember, a few years ago the cities of San Antonio and Portland were ready and willing to fully fund building baseball stadiums to bring the Marlins in but Bud Selig wouldn't let them leave. The NFL refused to let Tom Benson move the Saints. In most cases, relocation is a last resort unless the new owners are from a city that is desperate for a pro team.
http://www.sun-sentinel.com/sports/m...,3974374.story“I have no interest at all in moving the Dolphins,'' Ross said in an e-mail. The bid, he said, is, “strictly advancing our real estate, sports, entertainment and technology business.”
you guys are funny.
Like Ross's partners wouldn't want to bid on an NFL stadium because ross has the dolphins...
1- they don't give a rat's ass, they're into real estate not sports (ross is, not all the guys around him)
2- Ross likes miami, and also relishes the fact that we can host a superbowl and have done so once every four years since the existence of the event.
It is a fair asumption to believe that if Ross and his buddies buy the LA stadium, the dolphins could be in the talks for the move... but not in a near future, not a all. He's thinking long term, if this was bound to happen it would be in 5+ years
I thought about it and I really don't care. If it happened I would just stop following the NFL. As you get older you begin to realize it's just the same bs over and over. The only reason I care now is because I have been a fan of the Dolphins since I was about 7 years old. Thats 37 years. That really is the only attachment that I have to the NFL. Now if Orlando had a team or even an MLS team I would be thrilled. Assuming the Dolphins were no longer n Miami.
Who would have thought the legendary and fabled franchise of the Baltimore Colts would move to Indy. Similarly the fabled and legendary Cleveland Browns left to go to Baltimore.
As the Chinese would say 'We live in interesting times'
