Everybody knows there is absolutely no need to be a bilionnaire to buy a CFL franchise. When Feterik wanted to sell the Stampeders, he asked 7 millions$. A flailing granchise such as the Renegades wouldn't get as much.
So guys with just a couple of millions could buy the team.
However, for bilionnaires, this would be such an easy opportunity to get involved in football. I'd assume any football loving bilionnaire might want to buy the Renegades if only to get involved in a sport they love.
According to Forbes, we have 19 bilionnaires in Canada. I could hardly believe none of them likes football. So here they are with the cash they own.
Would anybody on the huddle know if any of these guys have the slightest interest in football?
