The Glazers own another sports franchise other than the Bucs, albeit in England.
"Allen purchased the Seattle Seahawks NFL team in 1997 when former owner Ken Behring threatened to move the Seahawks to Southern California. Allen was allowed to buy the team despite owning the NBA's Trail Blazers because Portland doesn't have an NFL team. (NFL rules prohibit team owners from either outright ownership or a majority share of another sports team outside its home market if they play in the same city as another NFL team.) He played a large part in the development of the new Seahawks' stadium, CenturyLink Field, although it was funded largely by tax revenue."

I'll believe it when I see it.
Angelos is the type of negotiator who will not think twice about walking away from a deal if he's not getting what he wants. I hope it happens, but you guys who are excited now, brace yourselves for disappointment.
If the deal hinges on the future of the tv rights, that's a wide gap.
ClarkHunt, the KC owner, also has a club in the MLS.
Three NFL owners have EPL teams (Lerner - Browns/Aston Villa, Kroenke - Rams/Arsenal, Glazers - Bucs/Man Utd), but of course, EPl teams aren't American.
If this happens I won't be able to contain myself. Until then, I'm trying hard (and mostly failing) to not get my hopes up.
Please let this be!
