What professional franchise would you buy ??? Any sport....


I must be sick, but I'd take the Royals... They will be up and coming in the next year or two...

500 million wouldnt buy you any NFL franchise so i would go with the Royals and have money left over to buy the Magic or some NHL to bring to Sprint Center.

I disagree. I'd rather be a FAN of the Chiefs than own them.

Every Arena League team.

I would say the Chiefs, but according to Forbes, they would cost me $700 million, and I'd probably want to keep an extra few million for a rainy day, so that doesn't seem like a possibility.
I could, however, buy the Red Sox, so I'll go with them. Great fans and a competitive division.

500 mil won't buy the Chiefs, and leave you with any operating money.

I think I'd buy an Arena League team.

The Red Sox are less than $500 mil? I'll take that.

Screw that.......If 500 Million landed in my lap, I would buy a shit load of man toys, but take a professional franchise. Hell, I would have to build an extra storage area to hold all the boats, cars, ATV's and other fun crap I would "invest" in. ;)

I'd throw $400M into controlling interest of the Chiefs and take on enough silent partners to make up the balance. Al Davis

I'd buy the Cubs or the Chiefs. I'd only want to own a team that I love.

While my love for the Chiefs is mush greater than my feelings for the Cubs, I'd have to say I'd buy the Cubs. 160 gaves vs 16, Chicago vs KC.

Plus no matted how bad either team is, I'm pretty sure I'd fill the stadiums.

I have read anywhere from 25 to 40 billion dollars as his personal fortune. So much it is not really comprehensible to me.

That way, I make money while the broncos lose.

So please lead the charge on the donations, so I can fulfill a life long dream of retiring in the south pacific.

continued thoughts, this organization would then give it all away to help normal people right here in america.

buy extra chiefs tickets for one game and then give them all away randomly.

go to the store and foot the food bill for everyone that comes in for the next hour.

reward acts of kindness seen around town. Someone picks up some trash, and reward them with $50. See someone help a stranger with car problems, buy them both a new car, or give them a few thousand dollars, something to that effect.

the greater the acts of kindness the greater the reward. Soon people would be treating each other better just in hopes that me or my workers would be near by to reward them, soon the world could actually be a little, very little I agree, but better none the less.

take a van full of cheeseburgers/sandwiches from a few mom and pop resturaunts (NOT a big chain) and hand them out to random people, preferably the less fortunate, but anyone that wants one.


the only requirement is humanity.
