OLD WOUNDS: In N.Y., Gary Myers noted Trump is "considered by the NFL as the driving force" behind the USFL’s $1.69B antitrust lawsuit against the league in '86. With 15 NFL teams are "still owned by same person or families," can Trump "get the required 24 of 32 votes -- 75% -- to be accepted into this very exclusive club?" An anonymous owner said, "It’s very hard to answer that question. He did try to bring the NFL down. Certainly, a lot of owners aren’t around anymore. Maybe some of the new guys wouldn’t bear the same type of resentment that some of the older guys would." But Myers wrote Trump "would be fun to have in the NFL," and his presence would "certainly force everybody to pay attention to the Bills." Myers: "Most importantly, he would keep the team in Buffalo" (N.Y. DAILY NEWS, 4/20).
