The ultra-rich keep lining up for ways to get ultra-richer.

According to the New York Post, Boston Red Sox owner John Henry possibly will be bidding on the Washington Commanders.

Henry recently commenced the process of selling Liverpool of the Premier League. The transaction reportedly is expected to generate $4 billion to $5 billion. After offsetting the debt, Henry reportedly would have between $2 billion and $3 billion.

An unnamed source told the Post that Henry wants to own an NFL team, and that he’ll consider the Commanders.

Several names have been linked to the Commanders, including Jeff Bezos, Mat Ishbia, and Byron Allen. Over the weekend, PFT reported that at least six credible potential majority owners have expressed preliminary interest in buying the team.

If not the Commanders, Henry likely will have to wait for the Seahawks, which could be sold as soon as May 2024.

  1. Maybe he should focus on the Red Sox instead of trying to buy an NFL team!!!’

  2. So much for the Sox. He bought Liverpool and lost focus. Buying the WFC will spread him even more.

    The Red Sox have won four world series championships since he bought the team. He is a great owner and is doing just fine. Commanders fans would be lucky to have him as an owner.

  4. Whoever buys the Washington team should change the name. “Commanders” is terrible.

  5. He’s just a guy who views these teams as investments.

    He’s horrible for the long-term fan base.

    Pass.

  6. Dan Snyder started sending out emails today for 2023 tickets! Why would I give him my cash now knowing he likely won’t own the team next year and I’m probably going to get a better deal from a new owner! He just never stops grifting!

  7. Buy the team and change it back to Washington Football Team. Let the fans call them whatever they want but from a branding standpoint, it was clean and to the point.

  8. It will take 20 more years, to unwind Paul Allen’s estate. So yeah, pull up a chair and wait.

  9. Yaz67 is right. If he can turn the team around he will be the toast of the town. Win a SB and DC will be building another monument for the National Mall.

  10. Right now there is an NBA franchise for sale, probably an NFL team soon (or 2 with the Seahawks) and 2 MLB teams. Billionaires have their pick of the litter right now to join the elite club.

    The team is in a trust so it won’t be tough. There’s a clause in the lease agreement that 10% of the team sale goes to Washington if done before May 2024, so it won’t happen before then. The trust just sold off $1.5B of his artwork collection.
