    Lmao, just as Rogers start spending $$$ they look to dip, fucking assholes. Probably was told how much Donaldson was looking for and how much payroll we have with Tulo and Martin going forward and said F that.

    Whoever will buy the Jays will be a step down in terms of wealth. I wonder if the Dome is up for sale as part of the team too

    Maybe MLSE will buy and have a monopoly on Toronto sports. Then they can sell the naming rights of the Blue Jays to Bombardier or something and have half the games split on TSN and Sportsnet. Aren't they 50/50 owned between Rogers and Bell though? If Rogers are selling would MLSE even be an option? That would just be selling half to Bell

    This would not likely be a good thing

    I fucking hate Rogers.

    The best type of owner is a billionaire that will spend whatever it takes to win. But those don't grow on trees.

    Yeah, you don't want a sportsteam owned by a public corporation, because shareholders don't invest to see a championship, they invest to see a return on their investment, so every decision the owner makes, has to be towards profit generation.

    Instead, we need an egotistical asswipe, who doesn't give a shit about money, and just wants to drive around in his Lambo, showing hoes his World Series rings.

    I believe several called me an idiot when I suggested that the continued increase in the team's valuation would tempt Rogers to sell. With the league TV deal up soon why risk it.

    Absolutely, all you got to do is read this article to see that a rising Blue Jays payroll can have a direct effect on share prices compared to their how they report on their investment in MLSE.

    Yeah I have always said Rogers, for as annoying as they can be, gets ragged on too much by the fanbase.

    Non corporate ownership could be a great thing or it could be a rich meddler who wants to interfere in player decisions. You really don't know what you're going to get. At least now we know payroll will be relatively stable and ownership won't mess with Shapiro's decision making. That may not be the case with someone else.

    I guess we just have to wait and see who they end up selling to.

    I'm sure any sale of the team would involve a lengthy deal for rogers to have the TV rates at a very favorable rate. The Thompson family owns the Jets, maybe they would be interested in dipping their toes into the baseball world.

    I always thought the Jays were profitable and the immense marketing that Rogers gets through the Blue Jays was invaluable. I guess when you're part of a near monopoly for service, marketing isn't as necessary and their are better investments out there for that money.


    I worry this is bad for my Blue Jays, but good for my shares in Rogers - such a confusing dilemma.

    MLB has a say in fair market value for TV Deals I’m pretty sure. They probably won’t get a cut price unless they sell the team for cheap. That’s why I think the MLSE will probably be the way to go, Rogers are going to have to probably pay an astronomical price for the Jays given their success in TV ratings and Nation-wide reach
