Default Rumor Cannon Fodder: Elway buys Broncos

To be honest, I have no idea if this has been posted, and I am far to lazy to research at this point in my holiday drunken debauchery. So, I have always thought that Elway, post career, was angling for [Broncos] ownership at some point and given Bowlen's relationship with Elway, my question to you all is: what is the likelihood that this becomes reality?

Discuss.

I'm too lazy to look it up, but it would depend on the Kaiser situation. he made a stink when Bowlen sold a minority share to Elway previously.

Bowlen's broke so it would probably only cost seven dollars.

I didn't see in there where the right of first refusal died with him.
Could have been some weird deal where it passed to a family member or something.
Anyway, I guess Bowlen is in the clear.

Elway doesn't have the kind of money necessary to buy an NFL team, come on.

I imagine he would be the face of an investment group that buys the team.

it would cost a minimum of one billion dollars to purchase the Broncos. Elway is not a billionaire. he would need a group of random, faceless investors to front most of the cash.

I would be worried with strapping the team financially or using it as some sort of collateral with a group of investors that probably don't care about the Denver Broncos. It would be horrible if it somehow didn't work out a few years down the road and the team went into a freefall due to poor ownership.

Elway would break off 2K with his own team.

Now it is time for you to go back and enjoy your drunken coma

Bowlen should sell all the shares to the people of Colorado. Let the people be the owner. John can keep his shares though

Elway could probably put together a group of investors.

Yep that is what he'd have to do. I say let Mrs. Bowlen should run the team. She looks real sharp.
