DOES NFL HAVE A DEBATE ON ITS HANDS OVER CROSS OWNERSHIP?
Published November 5, 1996
Even though the NFL's finance committee voted 6-1 to change cross ownership rules to allow owners to own teams in other sports, NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue "ran into so much opposition" on the issue that he "tabled" it until the NFL's spring meetings in March, according to Vito Stellino of the Baltimore SUN. Bills Owner Ralph Wilson, who objects cross ownership: "It's virtually the last rule we have and we should defend it. If the rules are good enough for 75 years or whatever, why do we have to change?" Bengals Owner Mike Brown: "The rule makes these teams special to the people who own them" (Baltimore SUN, 11/3).
