Multi-billionaire Jeff Bezos has interest in purchasing an NFL team and has become close with several current owners, according to league sources, and has strong support within the league to eventually join their ranks. Bezos, the Amazon mogul who also owns the Washington Post, has spend considerable time around owners, including Washington's Dan Snyder, and is in the process of moving to Washington.

At least Lamar took risks and tried to be his own man. That took balls to start a league to compete against the NFL. It did happen right at the right time though with black players out there just starting to be considered to be drafted and signed. He hire men to get out and scout and recruit from the black colleges.

Lamar gets some credit. He earned a lot of what he had.

I don't have time, but it would be interesting to see the football success rate of owners that earned their fortune vs. the owners that had their wealth handed to them.

Snyder is a disaster and he has tons of money. Robert Kraft has tons of money but run his team like he's poor, he has a dynasty.

Money helps but you can't really buy wins in the NFL like in some other sports.

I mean, doesn't that apply to all billionaires? And I don't buy that an owner would really change a lot in a staff. All they can do is hope to hire guys that can do the job well. After that I'd prefer the owner to be hands off for the most part.

I think it'd be cool to see Bezos as an owner. He's a nerd but a pretty ruthless guy. He runs Amazon like BB runs the Pats. Very little emotion w decisions, looks at the bottom line then decides what he wants to do based on that.

He's got the money to buy a team so he might as well do it if it interests him.
