    The trust (including Ellis) has the responsibilities of Pat Bowlen. They are acting in his place. He's doing exactly what he's supposed to be doing. I'm not sure what your concern is here... He's not the behind the scenes puppet master, he's involved with key decisions, but Elway handles personnel decisions as a normal GM does.

    No. What I am saying is that he has an interest in staying in control of the team. Having a say in the attempt of any party that can take control of the team seems like a conflict of interest.

    Shouldn't a trustee have power to exercise fiduciary duties? How can you take away a trustee's power and still have a trust?
    The sharp edge of a razor is difficult to pass over; thus the wise say the path to Salvation is hard.

    I assume you mean that currently Ellis being a trustee effectively makes him his own boss.

    Lets not forget that Bowlen set it up this way. Ellis has been the executive VP since SB 33, and moved up to CEO in 2008. Bowlen trusted the man to do this job, we as fans should too. He's been given 5 years to either pick a Bowlen child or sell the team by the NFL. I personally don't think he's trying to hold onto power, but even to play devil's advocate, he can't hold on for very much longer. A deadline has already been set. The guy has been Pats right hand man for years and wants to make sure that Pats wishes are followed properly and that the best person for the job is chosen.

    Btw, **** Joe Ellis. Good riddance.
    I wonder if they want Brittany to take over because she isn't ready yet (so they can hold onto power longer). I don't trust Joe Ellis. He is the one who hired McDaniels because he wanted more power.

    What are you talking about????? Mr. B hired McDaniels!!!!!

    “The biggest issue with Josh McDaniels’ first go-round as an NFL head coach came down to power. Denver Owner Pat Bowlen gave McDaniels executive/personnel authority, which was too much for the inexperienced and immature coach.

    Statement from Dan Reilly, Pat Bowlen Trust lawyer: “We are aware the counsel submitting this complaint on behalf of Bill Bowlen is the same one that has been representing Beth Bowlen Wallace.'' View: Trustees believe Beth Bowlen Wallace is behind Bill's lawsuit. #9sports

    I’m curious to see how Bill Bowlen has standing to bring this suit since he divested himself of his ownership share in 2002.

    Unless he is a beneficiary in Pat’s estate, which is largely comprised of the assets currently under the care of the trust. Then, if he is alleging a breach of fiduciary duty to the detriment of the trust, he might have standing. But I don’t know that Bill is a beneficiary.

    Yeah, I tried to find the petition. No luck. Here's the best grounds I found:

    Interested persons include legal representatives, spouse, parents, adult children, adult siblings, and other adults.

    Hmmm, that seems more like a conservatorship than a trust, but you may be right.
