    Ellis: Selling Team Is A Possibility

    Joe Ellis says that due to the need of the entire Bowlen family to sign off on who succeeds their father, itís possible that the team will be sold.

    Reading between the lines, Ellis doesnít believe Beth & Amie Bowlen will approve of Brittany Bowlen becoming the successor.

    Yes more then likely . The League is probably getting tired of the stuff going on with the ownership.

    Ugh. This is messy and it's affecting the organization on a fundamental level. I wish they would figure it out already. I don't know the parameters, but I believe the league can step in at some point. I'm basically crossing my fingers that it works out for the best. Right now, I think it is having a negative impact on the franchise.

    I see this as nothing but a strong-arm tactic to try and get the children to support Brittany. The team could have always been sold under the trust, and they had to know that whoever they picked would be disputed by the other children.

    To me this isn't really new news.

    I don't think it's affecting it to this extent. No former or current player has come out and stated how dysfunctional the organization is or that they're not getting paid or refusing to sign here because of the ownership situation.

    I think this is fun stuff for the media to report on because it plays out like a tamer episode of Dalllas or Days of Our Lives. But even if Mr. B were still alive and not ill, I don't really see a significantly different result.

    Thereís got to be a compromise here somewhere right? Surely it canít be Brittany or we sell? Why canít Beth and Brittany just come together and be co-owners? They are still family, I canít imagine that one side hates the other side so much that theyíd let Ellis Force a sale

    Ellis just wants to make sure he keeps his greasy little fingers in all things Broncos.

    Itís hard to say because Goodell has a close relationship with Beth Bowlen, however an extremely close friendship with Joe Ellis. At the moment, Goodell is kind of torn in between so a sale at some point could be a real possibility.

    However the nfl is actually fine with what is going on with the teams record, they donít care if teams lose. Somebody has to lose.

    They care how teams operate and this court battle is not a good thing for public relations however donít expect Bezos or anyone else to buy the team anytime soon. Iíve asked. And been told in no uncertain terms ďNOĒ!

    In my personal opinion Iíd say nothing is happening soon so get used to what we have and that is Joe Ellis.

    I agree that the infighting within the Bowlen Family needs to stop. They are hurting the team as a whole from administration to the team itself. Furthermore, the ownership should sell the team, and hire a new GM to give the Denver Broncos a better attitude and a fresh start.

    Keeping the team in the Bowlen Family Is A Possibility as much or more than the title suggests. The siblings have stated there is no "infighting" and Pat Bowlen's directives are to keep it in the family. Realistically, they have until the end of the 2021 season to works this out. The path they are on looks to be inline with the Pat Bowlen Trust.

    I would certainly hope this could stay within the family. The last thing this team needs is out of town, corporate ownership. Keep it local.

    Doesn't seem to be affecting the team, yet, so, not worried.

    If only I had a few billion dollars, I'd put in an offer.
