    even if he did I highly doubt that the NFL would approve someone like him as a owner.

    The NFL would have a pretty hard time not approving him without legal ramifications.
    People might disagree with his political views, but he does nothing illegal.

    Exactly why they would not approve him. The NFL is already trying to create a better image for itself, You honestly think they would approve a owner that has made publicly racist comments?

    It would be interesting to see what would happen.
    I think the legal fallout from not approving the sale would be unique.
    IMHO I think the NFL would use apply some more subtle pressure to keep him from buying the team before it ever came to that.

    That was my thought, what does an NFL team go for? The vikings went for 650million I believe, I imagine that is on the low end of the spectrum. Does st. louis have a newer stadium or do they still need a new one?

    They have the Edward Jones dome.
    It opened in 1995 when the Rams moved to St Louis.
    However, they have a problem with it.
    There is something in the Ram's leaset hat says that they have to make a certain % of the average stadium income for NFL teams.
    With all the newer stadiums going up since 1995, the Edward Jones dome is in danger of not making that criteria anymore...

    He just got done with a contract where he was making 12m/year, and he's been doing this for 20+ years, i'm sure not at this compensation, but still.

    He would be an entertaining owner, lot of controversy.
