The Glazer family is trying to sell the Tampa Bay Buccaneers,their NFL franchise. Tampa sports talk radio station WDAE broke the news.

Forbes valued the Buccaneers franchise at $1.085 billion in 2009.

The source of the Glazer family's trouble may be the UK soccer team it also owns, Manchester United.

That was a highly-leveraged buyout, and Man-U is now thought to be in as much as $1.8 billion debt.

If we all contribute some money we can get this done.

Congrats.

Guys, I know this seems like the time Homer Simpson wanted an NFL franchise and he got stuck with the Broncos and was really disappointed...well, okay..it is a lot like that but we can start there and move up...sell the team to LA and make some bank and then buy a real team.

I'm sure some Arab sheik or Russian oligarch would take Manchester United off their hands.

sorry, but it would be a conflict of interest in my book.

I'll pitch in $20 bucks. Another couple 100 should do it.

We, The Who Dat Nation, should buy the team. We can use them as our Farm team. A place were Chase Daniels and the rest of our young talent can live free and practice so that when they are called to duty they will be complete animals. Plus the 2 free wins a year wouldn't be too bad
