If Elway wanted to buy the Broncos, I guarantee you he would be able to put together the investors. And what's more, I would be really surprised if they were unwilling to let him take over the roll of CEO. His roll would then be similar to the one Al Davis had with the Raiders over the past four decades.
i know what you were trying to say. but this is about as bad an example as you could have used.
Davis was a senile fool in the last 10-15 years of his Raiders ownership tenure.
