  • Ownership.. A sad read

    Bill Bowlen, the younger brother of late Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen, says the death of his brother and subsequent power struggle for the team has torn his family apart.

      It's sad that NFL hasn't forced a sale yet. Not one of the Bowlen children are qualified to lead a NFL organization and they will all use Pat's Alzheimer's as a way to push their own agenda.

      We're going to be a bottom feeder until the organization is sold.

        Oh well...they will still be filthy rich when they sell! So no tears to cry over here. Frankly, I'm tired of this family and will be glad when I don't have to hear anything at all from the Bowlen brats.

          Didn't Jay Cutler say Pat Bowlen promise him something and then Pat came out and he said never had the conversion? That would have been around 2009

            which family with what 7 -8 kids from 3 different women is going to all get along when talking $3B.

            maybe Pat himself contributed to this mess without a distinct transition plan

              Or maybe he wanted it sold so made impossible goals for his children to reach before they could take over?

                Cutler claimed Bowlen was going to keep the offense coaching staff intact.

                  I think Pat ran out of time and the plan that was put into place was not his best work or what he would have done 5 years earlier.

                    The one thing I'll definitively say is Pat Bowlen loved the Denver Broncos and wanted to do his best to ensure future success -- but losing mental acuity sucks and I'm sure he thought he had more time to get a better plan ready -- but he ran out of time and we're seeing the direct results. What we'd all give to have Pat Bowlen back and mentally sound ------ we'd be all unicorns and rainbows like Paladin's avatar.

                      if so still a terrible roadmap to new ownership

                        I don't understand why, in 2010, when Bowlen stopped making all the decisions, and then in 2014 when he relinquished total control, things were not in place to make a smooth transfer. Why didn't they let Pat help in that transition in 2010 when he still had some mental stability. I don't know, it's become so frustrating, and I question whether I still want to be a fan of a team I've supported for 51 years due to the obvious disarray and no thought for the fans or players.
