    So is that putting the Avs (and Nuggets) in (more) financial straits?

    Considering that Kroenke has a Net Worth (according to Forbes) of $2.9B and his Walmart-heir wife has $3.2B, I wouldn't be too worried.

    Well, owning an EPL team worked wonders for Tom Hicks, so this should be good.

    Good luck, Kroenke!

    Didn't he give the Avs and Nuggets to his son so he could buy the Rams. Im sure the son has a very nice trust fund to support the Avs and Nuggets. The fathers activities dont have much impact on the son's wallet.

    the gunners are in the black

    hicks and co where deeply in the red from the word go

    also--Hick and co made a mint on the team--the claim heavy loses---but some bookers pointed out that they took a lot of money out of the team to pay other loses.

    One of the financial papers over here in the UK had a ten page article 2 years ago about how hicks and co did their books and while they did nothing wrong--they did place loses incured from other businesses under the Liverpool name and that was part of the problem
