    Because McCourt's purchase of the Dodgers was approved by the same man now seizing control... Bud Selig. Even though Selig knew McCourt had no money of his own.

    Somebody buy that trash - the entire McCourt family - one way tickets out of here since they obviously can't afford their own... in the immortal words of Marcellus Wallace, "YOU'VE LOST YOUR L.A. PRIVILEGES"

    What happens when the new owner claims keeping two teams in the LA market is not financially viable in the current economic climate, so he moves the team to Nevada?

    I seriously doubt that will happen. Dodgers, even during terrible years, still ranked in the top 10 in attendance and keep breaking attendance records. McCourt really screwed up the finances...

    Did AEG ever make a bid for the Dodgers when they were on sale in 2003?

    Steve Soboroff defends Dodgers owner: "We need more people like Frank McCourt" - latimes.com
    Soboroff, hired as the Dodgers' vice chairman on Tuesday, calls Commissioner Bud Selig's decision to take over team "irresponsible" and says McCourt is not too financially strapped to operate the team.

    Haha that guy is full of it, so I'm guessing the 200 million loan that McCourt was seeking was to buy another mansion or two?
