I think the rule is that they can't be in separate media markets. It came up, IIRC, when Stan Kroenke wanted to buy the Rams while he was still part owner of the Avalanche.

Iker Casillas.

Why Iker you ask?

Because he gets to go home to this every night.

Don't know if it counts, but the owner of the browns and bucs both own epl teams. Kroenke as noted also owns several teams.


What is the rationale behind it anyway?

Edit: Paul Allen as well.

Wasn't Cuban trying to buy the Texas Rangers too? (not saying Rangers would be the same as owning the Cowboys either, just that you can own teams in diff leagues) Almost certain someone can own a team in 2 diff leagues.

Ryan Reynolds seems like a ridiculously good pick here.

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

i dont know much about the NBA, but im going to go out on a limb here and guess the wizards are truly bottom of the barrel based on the number of "3-5 dollar" ticket emails i get from the verizon center

Re: SE FAQ, Liveblog, and Forum Discussion

reynolds is actually a great example of why picking beiber is dumb. ~5 years ago he seems like an awesome pick and now he's effectively a b lister.

and you don't even get to nail scarlett johansson anymore.

edit: dicaprio is all of 2 years older than reynolds, is possibly the biggest movie star in the world and has been for years. taking reynolds over dicaprio is so so bad.

We could even expand it. Like, person you'd most like to be, chick you'd must like to bang for the rest of your life, 1 game that you'd like to play (board/video), 1 place to live for the rest of your life... something like that. I'm sure we could add a couple more categories and make it legit.

You seriously can't compare Reynolds to Bieber though. It's not even close. Bieber has a net worth of 85 million and he's not even 18 yet (is he?)

I think Manchester united probably make the glazers more per year than the bucs.

Second most valuable club in the world after the yankees iirc.

Thing is, I just don't see Bieber pulling top celebrity level ass. Like unless he grows to be over 6', I don't see him ever banging Marisa Miller or Kate Upton.
