    One of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen’s brothers asked a Colorado District Court on Thursday to remove the three-person trust in control of the team “due to their failure to uphold Pat Bowlen’s wishes and act in the best interest of Pat Bowlen, his family and the Broncos.”

    Since Pat Bowlen stepped aside from his day-to-day duties in 2014 to battle Alzheimer’s, Joe Ellis, Rich Slivka and Mary Kelly have served as trustees for the Pat D. Bowlen Trust. Ellis, as the Broncos’ president and CEO, is the team’s point person at league meetings.

    In a press release, Bill Bowlen said the trustees “have conflicts of interest that impair their ability to act impartially in Pat Bowlen’s best interest,” according to the petition, which was filed in Arapahoe County District Court in Centennial.

    Bill Bowlen asked the court to appoint an independent party to serve as conservator of Pat Bowlen’s estate, removing Ellis, Slivka and Kelly as agents of Bowlen.

    “I am a huge fan of the Broncos, and have been for decades. Unfortunately, over the past 15 years, I’ve noticed that the operation of the Broncos has deteriorated, while my brother’s health has worsened,” Bill Bowlen said in a statement.

    “I have real concerns with these trustees, their conduct and how they got to the positions they are in. They have little or no accountability to anybody but themselves. They have not complied with the rules of the NFL and I am uncomfortable with the way they have handled my brother’s affairs. I know what his wishes were, and these individuals are definitely not following them.”

    Bill Bowlen owned a stake in the Broncos until selling his share to Pat Bowlen in 2002.
