Amazon CEO, Jeff Bezos has been in news for purchasing Washington Commanders. Because of allegations about owner Dan Snyder’s administration, the team is up for sale, and the 58-year-old is claimed to have accepted bids throughout a closed-door auction that Bezos was not allowed to attend.
Albert Breer of Sports Illustrated that even if the former CEO of Amazon is unsuccessful in his chase of the Commanders, he still has a chance of achieving his dream of owning an NFL team since he also has his sights on the Seattle Seahawks. According to Breer, Bezos could be even keener on buying the Seahawks than the Commanders.
It is also believed that the current owners might welcome Bezos to their ranks. Snyder is hesitant to settle a score with Bezos by selling his team to him. Many believe that giving the team to Bezos will prove beneficial for both wealth and the sports industry.
As of right now, the website is carrying a fresh story claiming that the shareholders are considering Snyder’s replacement as the Commanders’ owner because they are unhappy with his desire to be released from any obligation if the team is sold.
Bezos has been open about wanting to acquire an NFL franchise, as well as the fact that he’s been so wealthy in bringing profit him an excellent contender. The other shareholders are believed to see the possibility of him joining them in this way, at least.
