Faulk is interested in owning a piece of the Rams

Last week, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Dave Checketts might fill the spot created by the removal of Rush Limbaugh from the group attempting to purchase the Rams with former Rams running back Marshall Faulk.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Faulk says he hasn’t been contacted yet, but that he’d be interested.

I don’t have any involvement as of today,” Faulk said Sunday on NFL Network’s NFL
GameDay Morning
.  “I have not been
contacted by Dave Checketts’ group.  I have not talked to Dave Checketts
at all about this. . . .

“I would love to be a part owner. . . .  That would be a great honor, but I haven’t talked to them at all.”


 

Checketts’ bid is one of reportedly three proposals made by groups who would keep the team in St. Louis.  Curent ownership is careful to point out that no decision has been made to sell a controlling stake in the team.

A sixty-percent share of the Rams currently is owned by the two adult children of the late Georgia Frontiere, Chip Rosenbloom and Lucia Rodriguez.  Stan Kroenke owns the other 40 percent. 

Kroenke reportedly is interested in buying the rest of the team, but he would need a waiver of the league’s cross-ownership rules.  Kroenke owns the Denver Nuggets of the NBA and the Colorado Avalance of the NHL.  Currently, owners may hold teams in other sports leagues only if all teams reside in the same market.

    Oh, does this mean that Al Sharpton has withdrawn from the group?

    I would also love to be the part owner of a team, and I, as well, haven’t been contacted by anyone or had any involvement in any way. Can I get a post now too?

    Quick, someone make up some racial quotes, put them on his Wikipedia page and derail his ownership bid!

    In other news, the sun will rise tomorrow and NFL games will be played on Sunday. Is there anyone who wouldn’t want to own a piece of a NFL team?

    Yawn. Yeah, see, stories about partial NFL owners are only interesting if conservatives are involved. Any trade rumors?

    This is a joke. I have more money than Faulk does.

    Would he have to resign on NFLN?

    I’m glad to see Faulk took care of his money well enough to be a part owner of an NFL team unlike most ex-players you hear about. Good for him.

    I want to be a part owner!

    he’d better hope he hasn’t so much as given a dirty look to a person of another race or the torches and pitchforks will be lit and the crowds gathered.

    I hear Faulk prefers green M&Ms over red ones. Much too polarizing a figure.

    Doesn’t he already own 0.5% of the Dolphins… like everybody else?

  14. Biff Henderson says: Oct 20, 2009 12:48 PM

    I own a piece of the Green Bay Packers and am looking to diversify my portfolio.
