Ellison Wants an NFL Team?

By Deane Barker on October 15, 2004

Oracle chief reportedly mulling NFL team purchase: Maybe he could just get a team in a hostile takeover.

Oracle CEO Larry Ellison, one of the world’s richest people, is looking at possibly owning a National Football League franchise, the Los Angeles Times reported Thursday.

Representatives for both the NFL and Oracle would not comment on the story and would neither confirm nor deny whether NFL executives and Ellison had met.

I can’t wait to see the data backend he’d put on this system. Now, if Bill Gates bought a team too — that would be something. They could have the “Geek Bowl.”
