Bezos wants to purchase an NFL team.


Amazon mogul Jeff Bezos is reportedly interested in purchasing an NFL team and has supporters in ownership circles.

Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported the interest from the world's richest man, though there is no team currently up for sale. La Canfora noted the Seattle Seahawks will be sold after late owner Paul Allen's death, and the NFL has "concern" about the Denver Broncos' ownership situation.

Bezos has a net worth of more than $110 billion, making even the most expensive NFL franchise a relative pittance to his overall checkbook. He's one of the very few people on earth who could buy an NFL franchise in cash, which makes him an attractive potential owner for the league.

2. Go Hawks!

Beat those 49ers!

Bezosí ownership of Seahawks would get a big bag of mixed reviews from the 12s I think...

11. Not really seeing "mixed" reviews on my fansite...

mostly it's

For me it's

Right now, there haven't been many rumors that they want to sell. Paul Allen's sister is filling in as the head of the owner's group and has said they don't intend to sell.

4. Exclusive club. They don't like alpha males competing against their alphas.

Jerry Jones won't let this happen.

Some owners are just business managers but they movers and shakers are the ones you hear from.

6. Trump would stroke out if this happens.

Trump always wanted an NFL franchise. He was told by former Pete Rozelle -- to his face -- that he would never get an NFL franchise so long as Rozelle was associated with the league.

Trump hates Bezos, because he has far more money, and because he owns the Washington Post. If Bezos get a franchise Trump was denied, he'll started chewing the rug in the Oval Office.
