It's Football or is it?

Intestinally enough I found out two things today.
1. The current owners of the Bucs are trying to by Manchester United.
2. Soccer clubs over in Europe are publicly traded companies.


This begs the question of whether NFL teams will become publicly traded stock sometime in the future? How much is a share of Redskins worth? Do you think owners would be for it or against it? What would be the overall impact to the game?

In a day in which big money, and big markets dominate pro sports the Green Bay Packers remain competitive despite playing in a city with a population of only 102,726. Helping to keep the team afloat is the fact that the community via shares of stock owns the team. The last time shares of stocks were put on sale was in 1997, at $200 a share. For people who own shares it is a status symbol, and one of their most valued possessions. A total of 4,748,906 shares are owned by 110,812 stockholders - none of whom receives any dividend on the initial investment.

It means owners can't just move a team - doubt they'd like that.
