    As Owner Dame will put himself back in the roster and double dip. Joke.

    S2 fans : You just gave a contract to a reverberating carbonizer with mutating capacity to an unlicensed cephalopoid, Dame, you piece of shit...

    Dame : He looked all right to me

    S2 fans have no sense of humor of which we are aware

    He would be part of an ownership group most likely. That group could possibly be very good. At this point I'm all for Dame becoming a big part of the Blazers future if possible.

    I just hope it also includes Aldridge and Drexler.

    It's not about that. That would be fantastic. It's just, often players have shown they don't have the impartiality to make sound decisions. MJ comes to mind. But if part of a group of people? Hell yeah, make it happen Dame!

    Texas tries to take everything else that is Oregon. Why not the Blazers?

    We need an Owner who is extremely rich, someone who doesn't care about luxury tax. The greatest teams always spent and spent and spent. Dame is rich no question, but not that rich

    He would have a minority stake in the team, so it's unlikely he'd have final say on trades or moves etc.

    He'd likely own only a tiny slice of the team. Like Magic with the Dodgers and Redskins. He'd be there for PR.

    I'm all for it.

    If
    Big Equity firms are looking to invest in Pro Sports franchises. The return on investment is appealing. In order to move Bert and Jody into selling a blow your socks off offer would be needed. Not market value but significantly above. 3 billion range might do it.

    I understand @THE HCP is quite wealthy from his "Lawnmower Man" Only Fans account.
