I vote for anyone owning the team other than Murdoch. He was a disaster as owner of the Dodgers.
It looks as though a showdown is brewing between Murdoch and Cuban and TV is right in the middle of things. Cuban would probably like to make the Rangers a central player in HDNet while Murdoch doesn't want to lose the Rangers off of Fox Sports SW.
My fear is that what went down yesterday (Friday) with GnR trying to prevent an auction was their last-gasp in this process. While they increased their bid do any of us really think they can keep up with Cuban or Murdoch in a bidding war, with all of their TV money?
Oh yeah, and Cuban now is one of the dirty, hated creditors. The story is really amazing. As they have been saying on The Hardline for awhile someone needs to write a book on this (Evan Grant). The details really are amazing.
