Amazon founder Jeff Bezos has yet to make an offer to buy the Washington Commanders. Some wonder if he will get involved in pursuing the team owned by Daniel Snyder since 1999.
Via Josh Kosman of New York Postsome think that Bezos could sell the Washington Post to buy the commanders.
Seems like too easy a solution, if it’s true that Snyder doesn’t want to sell to Bezos because Bezos owns the Washington Post. Snyder doesn’t hate the Washington Post for what he might write in the future but for what he has written in the past, especially about Snyder. Specifically to maybe force Snyder out. According to the report, however, Snyder would consider it a goodwill gesture, should Bezos sell the Washington Post.
A spokesperson for Bezos told the New York Post that the Washington Post is not for sale.
Here’s an idea, sparked by the fact that Carroll Rosenbloom and Robert Irsay once traded the Rams for the Colts, straight. Bezos could include the Washington Post as part of the commanders purchase price, and then Snyder would tell the Job cover Bezos and the commanders as aggressively as Bezos and the Job covered Snyder and the Commanders.
I was kidding when I started typing that paragraph. But by the time I finished it, it started to look like a pretty good idea.
