    So much for that. Looks like we have the new owner in place.

    I'd imagine it's only until the sale of the team can be made.

    This means I can marry her and when she passes I get the team with no estate taxes.

    Not for long....

    Mike Schopp@Schopptalk Seems Mary Wilson, wife of the late Ralph Wilson, becomes controlling owner of the Bills. The trustees will commence working toward a sale.

    Mike Schopp@Schopptalk 17m Potential candidates to buy the Bills will be vetted in the coming months, with a sale perhaps being consummated in about a year.

    It will be interesting to see the potential ramifications. Having it in a trust may mean it has to be sold to the highest bidder... This may mean Mary can sell it to whomever she wants.

    Since birth right? Grandpa Lecter wanted a continuation of the ownership in Buffalo and to marry the house of Lecter with the house of Wilson. Now that you can join your houses you can begin to take over the world.

    This is my point. It could be that Mary as sole owner can pick and choose who she sells the team to. It's her to do with as she sees fit.

    Which is great news, because that means she is not obligated to choose the highest bidder. If Jon Bon Jovi (for example), who would move the team, bids $900 MIL and Jeremy Jacobs (again, for example), who would keep the team here, bids $895 MIL, a trust would have no choice but to choose the $900 MIL. Mary Wilson, on the other hand, could choose the lower bid.

    It would seem that way. That's my guess.
