This soccer story has has been percolating for months, if not more than a year, and I think it's great.
The question, though, is what _else_ can we regular citizens buy? Could we buy something important, like a newspaper? Or build one from scratch? I've always thought it'd be nice to put together a USA Today, but a non-corporate one, and we could easily distribute it in every major city in America - and we could probably pay people to do it. We'd be sort of like the Green Party - we would only take ad money from non-profits and businesses not over some certain size - say 50 employees or some revenue amount, like $1 million or so.
Now you, too, can own a professional soccer team. And no, you don’t have to settle for an M.L.S. expansion franchise. Like Malcolm Glazer, Roman Abramovich and other super-rich sports investors, fans can own part of a real English professional soccer team.
What say you?
...i'm in. It's not really 'ownership', that i can tell - more you just get a chance to vote for a single year. You can buy yearly memberships, up to three, I think. Kinda sucks, but I'm glad I got in so I can check out how everything works.
