from the Jewish Business News,
According to speculation, the two main players emerging in what could be a battle to gain control of the Buffalo Bills are Jeremy Jacobs and his family, and Donald Trump, who has recently begun to display an interest in getting involved in the world of professional sports.
One major barrier that Buffalo born Jeremy Jacobs will have to overcome is his ownership of the Boston Bruins who play in the NHL. According to NFL rules, owners of a major pro sports franchise, irrespective of which sport, and the seller from owning a NFL team, unless they were based in the same city.
This ruling would mean that if Jacobs where to succeed in his efforts to acquire the “ Buffalo Bills” he would be required to part company with the Bruins. Even at this early stage,it has been suggested that one of Jacobs’ ‘ three sons could possibly sell their shares in the Bruins, which would mean that they could become the controlling owner of the Buffalo Bills. No matter which permutation, if the deal were to go through it would have to be in complete compliance with the NFL’s ownership rules.
