    California corruption case entangles unnammed NFL owner

    ...According to the Associated Press, a new indictment against California Senator Leland Yee accuses him of offering him to help pass league-friendly workers’ compensation legislation “in exchange for campaign contributions from an unidentified NFL owner.”

    It’s unclear whether the unidentified NFL owner actually offered contributions in exchange for Yee’s support of the bill of whether the unidentified NFL owner was ever approached about the possible quid pro quo arrangement.

    Either way, there’s a lot more to this story. And if the authorities ever believe they can provide that the unidentified owner broke any federal laws, someone may be forking over a $92 million fine to avoid prosecution and the inevitable NFL suspension that goes along with it.

    Do we speculate that the unidentified NFL owner is from one of the three California based NFL franchises? Those owners would have the most employees impacted from this type of legislation. Or was it another owner who has a team that may be possibly moving to LA in the future? There are probably many hoping it is Jerry Jones.

    Jerry is a lot of things, but I don't think he's dumb enough to get involved in something like this.
