DOLLAR BILLS: SportsCorp President Marc Ganis said the number of billionaires "in the mix" who might decide this month to bid on the Bills is "far broader than the names the media have identified.” Ganis: "I know that there are very financially capable prospective bidders who are looking at this. ... I suspect they won't be identified publicly unless they are successful.” Ganis said that the unidentified potential bidders he is aware of are “so deep-pocketed and cash fluid” that each could “potentially buy the team on his or her own” (QMI AGENCY, 7/6).
A PHINE MESS: In Ft. Lauderdale, Chris Perkins noted Dolphins DE Dion Jordan’s four-game suspension for violating the NFL's PED policy is “another bad news episode for the Dolphins, a team that has been immersed in a string of bad news events for almost a year.” Each of these events has “added to the perception that coach Joe Philbin and owner Steve Ross still don’t have a firm grasp on their organization.” In the end, this is “just another episode to make fans shake their heads” (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 7/4).
