UNITED FRONT: MLS FC Dallas Media Relations Dir German Sferra yesterday "shot down the reports linking" Hunt Sports Group Chair Clark Hunt to EPL club Newcastle United. Sferra said of the Hunt family, "There's nothing to it. They're happy with the sports investments that they currently have. They're not pursuing Newcastle or any other sports franchise at this time." Meanwhile, in L.A., Grahame Jones notes AEG Chair Philip Anschutz also has been reported to be interested in the club, but while his name has been "freely mentioned in the English press, there has been no confirmation of his interest" (L.A. TIMES, 11/11).
