Everyone knew it was coming sooner or later. He was at 29.9% and once you acquire more than 30% you have to make a formal bid to buy the team. He just bought a combined 32% from 2 different people and now owns over 62%. His bid values the team at almost $1.2 billion.

Stan's holdings will now include:

Arsenal
StL Rams
Avs
Nuggets
Rapids
Mammoth

Don't you mean Root?

I believe it's just re-branded Faux Sports Net.

Or, you could take the 15 seconds worth of Googling required to discover that it's owned by DirectTV.

Or, you could be less of a douchenozzle.

They have the same guys calling games that were on Faux, covering the same games that were on Faux, with very similar font style on their promotional materials to the Faux Sports Net brand.

Sorry you had to do 15 seconds of Googling. I'm sure it was exhausting.

Does this mean he will stop caring about the Nuggets? Assuming he ever did.

If it goes through, it's amazing to me that United, Liverpool, and Arsenal would be owned by Americans and Chelsea is foreigned owned as well, the 4 biggest clubs in England.
