Strunk: Titans aren’t for sale


In case you haven’t heard, the Titans aren’t for sale.

They’ve said it repeatedly since the passing of team founder Bud Adams. On Thursday, owner Amy Adams Strunk repeated the position that the team isn’t on the market.

The team is not for sale,” Strunk said, via Jim Wyatt of the team’s official website.

The team definitely isn’t for sale. But it could be at some point, if the Titans can’t come up with a solution to the league’s concerns regarding the current ownership. With the equity split among Strunk, her sister, and the children of their late brother, no one currently has the authority to run the team that the league requires.

It’s unclear whether the NFL will ever draw a line in the sand, forcing the Titans to comply with NFL bylaws by a specific date. Options would then include selling the team (up to six buyers are in play) or fighting back in court.

    Why not sell the team?
    If you aren’t passionate about football, why own a team worth > 1 Billion?

    Sell it and invest the money and use it to do things you enjoy.

    I don’t care for Soccer. If I owned Manchester United, I’d sell it.

    What a mess. Sell it for goodness sake.

    Why sell? Owning an NFL team is a cash cow and you get all the celebrity perks. The taxpayers will be forced to build you a lavish palace with all the solid gold bells and whistles you want. Oh, the peasants object? Just move the team and tear the heart out of the community. Such is the life of a 1%er, not having to deal with the lower class.

    Look at what good it did the Browns or Bills to sell. Both are still bottom feeding bums even with new vigorous owners at the helm!

    I wonder why they feel the need to keep telling everyone the team is not for sale. It doesn’t make sense. I get that the rumors persist (also, why do they persist?) but that isn’t your concern.

    Please Lord, let them swap with Haslam then sell the Browns!!

    …. until Peyton Manning officially retires, then it will be for sale for about 20 minutes

    Maybe if the media would stop pushing this crap and the rumors, it wouldn’t have to be addressed a thousand times. We get it, less news this time of year. But don’t make crap up.

    Every single part of the organization has stated countless times they are not for sale. There has been nothing to point to the contrary. Drop it already.

    No one in the ownership cluster cares about football. Sell it. Get out. Spend your money elsewhere.

    …..This JUST in !!….”Generalissimo Francisco Franco is still dead”

    Yet. She forgot that part. When roger strong arms her and her family because their ownership structure is out of wack, the sale will be quick like with Lerner when he sold to Haslem.

    All NFL teams and pretty much anything else can be bought if you offer enough money.

    WTH….. All they need is for the heirs and the other sister to sell Strunk enough to shut up the NFL. It looks like it will only take a few percent to do that.

    Tennessee deserves all the legacy that Bud Adams left behind !!!

    They have issued so many statements about the team not being for sale in the past couple of months, I expect to read the owners approved the sale any minute now.

    Sell it to Red McCombs so he can move the team back to Texas and bring back the Oilers. Would love to see that helmet back in the NFL.
