SOUL MAN: AFL Soul co-Owner Jon Bon Jovi, in a Q&A with the N.Y. POST’s Dan Aquilante, said, “When I bought the team I thought I was going to be like [Yankees Owner George] Steinbrenner. I was going [to] be the guy sitting in the box smoking footlong cigars. I didn’t understand the work until I had to do it.” Bon Jovi noted ten of the 19 AFL teams “are owned by NFL organizations, and whatever they need is there for them. When I bought the team, we didn’t even own helmets or shoulder pads. We had nothing –- I actually went to Modell’s to buy that kind of stuff” (N.Y. POST, 7/18).
