Brittany Bowlen wants to run the Broncos, eventually

Another member of the Bowlen family has publicly stated her desire to run the team that her father owns.

Brittany Bowlen, the 28-year-old daughter of Pat Bowlen, declared publicly for the first time on Saturday night that she aspires to eventually become the controlling owner of the team.

“Right now, the Denver Broncos have an owner,” Brittany Bowlen said at the Global Down Syndrome Foundation’s annual fashion show, via the Associated Press. “It’s my father. Unfortunately, he can’t be involved in the day-to-day of the team. I do have ambitions and goals to one day becoming the controlling owner of the Denver Broncos. And I’ll keep working toward those goals. I’m not there yet, but I really believe I can get there.”

Beth Bowlen Wallace, 47, stated her desire to become the team’s controlling owner earlier this year. The trust that currently runs the team took issue with Beth Bowlen Wallace’s contention that she has satisfied the criteria to become the controlling owner.

Under the terms of the trust established by Pat Bowlen, a three-person group of trustees has the authority to determine if and when one of Bowlen’s seven children have satisfied the criteria to become the controlling owner. It makes for a Willie Wonka-style competition, with the Golden Ticket holders not total strangers but offspring.

Along those lines, it’s safe to say that John Bowlen already has fallen into the chocolate river. When and if one of the remaining six can satisfy the requirements and inherit controlling ownership of the team remains to be seen.

  1. Now I see why in Europe siblings used to off each other for control of the throne. The king isn’t gone yet and they’re already claiming his crown.

  2. Pat Bowlen has been a tremendous owner for the Broncos and the entire NFL. Mr. B’s contributions were priceless to the league and the team’s record is also impressive, I hope someone in the family can do half as well.

  3. Good grief. She’s 28 years old and talking about owning an NFL team. I’m 28 years old and.. well.. reading about her desire to own the Broncos. I wonder if she is single. Lol my wife would understand I am sure!

  4. Hi Brittany! Not sure if you’re single, but I’m your man! Let’s get rid of Elway, figure out this whole QB situation, and start winning some Championships!

  5. “Two years ago, when Brittany served as a business analyst with the Broncos, she was put in charge of developing and designing the franchise’s presentation to attract the NFL draft to Denver.” – Woody Paige 2/2018

    Brittany Bowlen is the most qualified Bowlen to own the team. She worked in the NFL offices for 2 years, has an MBA in Finance, and is working on getting Denver to host the draft. Sounds pretty qualified to me.

  6. I can see it now, her trying to hire suitors for the team

    “I can like, totally see you as the coach.”

  7. Keep an eye on Brittany, shes currently at duke getting her MBA and has shown commitment. Unlike drunk Johnny Bowlen and Beth (who is nuts).

  8. Very nice looking young lady. Once she finds a smart guy to marry, who will guide her along, and be the true “controlling owner” behind the scenes, then the Trust will find her qualified and sign off on her petition.

  9. I remember when the Culverhouse daughter “ran” the Tampa Bay Bucs.
    What a disaster. Creamsicle orange uniforms, a forced entry into a Tampa social club, that fairy looking Buccaneer Bruce on the helmets.
    What a mess.

  10. Nice try busting on the BUCS scorpion…the bucs were ALWAYS run by Mr.Culerhouse…not very well…but he was running the ship. He was cheap but the original orange uniforms and BUCKO BRUCE were AWESOME!

    I think those uniforms were better in retrospect than they were in reality. We all miss them now (including me) but no one was crying when we got the new pewter and red in 1997. I know the players themselves hated Bucco Bruce.

    I liked the orange and white. I just wanted them to update the logo to something more intimidating than that dude with questionable masculinity and a knife in his mouth.
