    Mark Kiszla's the local joke columnist, but he's got a reasonable point here.

    Isn't Stan precluded from handling the Avs and Nuggets operational matters by the NFL constitution? I know he worked to keep the teams in the family, but in order for him to be approved to buy the Rams, he had to transfer ownership to his son, iirc.

    To me, that also means that he's not supposed to get involved with the operation of either team.

    His son Josh handles the operations, so technically they are separate. It's still the same Wal-Mart money, although it's possible that his son either cares less or is more incompetent.

    When the elder Kroenke bought the team, it was well-known (to us conspiracy theorists at least :) ) that basketball was his thing, and not hockey.

    Once the lockout happened and the cap was placed, Kroenke seemed to stop caring about the Avs entirely and doesnt seem to want to put much money into the team. I guess the Avs dont matter to him now that he can't just buy a top tier team.

    I would honestly like to see a new owner entirely buy the Avs, someone who cares about hockey.
