PLAYING THE TRUMP CARD: The AP's John Wawrow noted Trump is "bidding on his own after electing against being joined by partners." Trump is prepared to "make an all-cash offer" (AP, 7/31). However, Giants Chair & Exec VP Steve Tisch said that he "would have a lot of questions" for Trump "before approving him as the owner" of the Bills. Tisch said that he would ask Trump "about his views on ownership, and what he could add to an NFL team." In N.Y., Kosman & Weiss note while Trump "is friendly with Tisch and other NFL owners, the league, which has long tried to distance itself from sports betting, would likely want to steer clear of his casino holdings" (N.Y. POST, 8/1).
MYSTERY MAN: In Buffalo, Jerry Zremski notes Wilson's last will and testament "leaves no clues" about his intentions regarding the sale of the team. Instead, Wilson's will -- filed in Wayne County (Mich.) Probate Court last month -- "leaves all the important details of his estate to a trust agreement that, under Michigan law, is not public" (BUFFALO NEWS, 8/1).
