... he probably should start now.

Quote:
Giants owners Steve Tisch and John Mara have teamed up with Jets owner Woody Johnson and are kicking around a plan to buy a controlling stake in Italian soccer team AS Roma.

The trio reportedly made an offer recently to buy the beleaguered team nearly three years after George Soros and New York lawyer Joe Tacopina put in an unsuccessful bid to buy the club, the Italian newspaper Il Manifesto reported today.

The newspaper reported that the dollar amount has not been made public as both sides try to hammer out a deal.

The Giants and Jets are co-owners of the New Meadowlands Stadium, which opened last year, and both teams worked together last year to bring Super Bowl XLVIII to the stadium in 2014.

Both the Jets and Giants have denied they are in talks to buy the team.

Not sure how to feel about this. First they were scrapping to afford the state of the art stadium that didn't need to be that friggin ridiculous, allegedly, and hammer their fan bases with PSLs and now they can suddenly afford one of the more recognizable clubs in the world. To be fair, this could be their only football club in operation in 2011.

If things don't work out with Roma, maybe they can kick the corrupt Berlusconi out of office and take over A.C. Milan. :lol:

I'm not an Italian soccer expert, but my dad is a Juventus fan and my brother is an A.C. Milan fan. I would say that Roma is about the 4th biggest team in Serie A(Italy's top professional soccer league). I think that Juventus, A.C. Milan, and Inter Milan are bigger teams than Roma.

Would be awesome to have ownership that actually spends some money on the team. They've been doing well under Rosella Sensi with no real impact transfers to work with. Sensi has been a disaster and right now they are being run by Unicredit (bank in Rome). Don't see it happening however. Italy is too backwards and probably wouldn't stomach foreign ownership of one of their biggest teams.

Regardless I will be pulling for the Jets in the playoffs. They've always been my AFC team and with the Vikes out really hoping they can go on a run.
