    Based on that, she has zero experience needed to run an NFL club and I'm glad they aren't handing it to her. At least Brittany spent something like three years in the league Jr. management program.

    I am wondering if the failure to secure stadium naming rights are a reason for this partially and the Sports Authority fiasco. They probably thinking they essentially losing $20m+ a year by not plastering some Corp leviathan name on new Mile High. Sounds possible.

    I think they just want control of the team (and the added income that comes with it) I can't imagine that being the controlling owner instead of a trust fun kid is a difference in income, probably quite significant.

    Default Bowlen Trust files motion requesting NFL serve as arbitrator in Broncos ownership dispute

    The three-person trust which runs the Broncos submitted a filing Friday in Colorado District Court requesting a stay in the proceedings triggered by a lawsuit last month by a brother of owner Pat Bowlen requesting the trust be removed from power.

    Since 2014, when Bowlen stepped away from the team because of Alzheimer’s, the trio of Joe Ellis, Rich Slivka and Mary Kelly have served as trustees for the Patrick D. Bowlen Trust. Ellis, as the Broncos’ president and CEO.

    On Oct. 25, Bill Bowlen presented a lawsuit wanting to remove the trust, “due to their failure to uphold Pat Bowlen’s wishes and act in the best interest of Pat Bowlen, his family and the Broncos.”

    The trustees originally had 20 days to respond but received a one-week extension. Their 34-page document also requested that Beth Bowlen-Wallace and Amie Bowlen-Klemmer — the two oldest of Pat’s seven children — enter into arbitration with the NFL and not the court system.

    ENGLEWOOD – There is officially a Bowlen family rift.

    Bill Bowlen, younger brother of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen who has surrendered control of the team to his trust, filed a lawsuit in a Colorado District Court on Thursday against trustees Joe Ellis, Rich Slivka and attorney Mary Kelly, asking they be removed from their responsibilities because of “their failure to uphold Pat Bowlen’s wishes and act in the best interest of Pat Bowlen, his family and the Broncos.”

    Here’s where the turmoil within the family dynamic comes in: Five months ago, Bill Bowlen, who is 69 and lives in Edmonton, Alberta, came out in favor of his niece Beth Bowlen Wallace taking control of the Broncos after Beth Bowlen Wallace sent out a press release announcing she is ready to take charge of the Broncos.

    Beth Bowlen Wallace is one of two daughters from Pat Bowlen’s first marriage to Sally Parker. The trustees, however, have been noticeably grooming Brittany Bowlen for the controlling owner position. Brittany Bowlen is one of five children from Pat Bowlen’s second marriage to Annabel.

    Default Annabel Bowlen moves to intervene in ongoing battle over control of Broncos

    Annabel Bowlen – the wife of ailing Broncos owner Pat Bowlen – has joined the expanding legal battle over which of his children will ultimately control the NFL team, 9Wants to Know has learned.

    Much of that dispute is shrouded in secrecy because it is being fought in probate court, where the details of legal documents are not a matter of public record. However, 9Wants to Know confirmed through Annabel Bowlen’s attorney, Hugh Gottschalk of Wheeler Trigg O’Donnell, that she had filed a motion to intervene in the ongoing litigation.

    That litigation began in October when Pat Bowlen’s brother, William “Bill” Bowlen, filed a motion seeking the removal of the three trustees running the team, asserting that they were not fulfilling the longtime owner’s wishes. Bill Bowlen believes one of Pat Bowlen’s daughters is ready to take control of the NFL team.

    So Annabell is trying to step in now? Man this is getting ugly.

    Who has the power to fire Ellis? I would think his firing would benefit Beth.

    It could get even more ugly once the opposition states she’s not in the right state of mind to oppose since she recently admitted to the early onset of Alzheimer’s.

    That’s going to be the othersides argument.

    The link keeps crashing on me before I can get past the 1st paragraphs, but all the articles in this thread combine to lead me to believe that the Bowlens are creating a united front to get rid of the Trust on the grounds that they don't believe it will ever honor the will of Pat Bowlen by relinquishing control of the team to 1 of the kids.

    Not quite, It says that the trust is favoring the children of Pat's second wife and excluding his children from the 1st marriage. It says a lot of other things but this seems to be the main point of contention.

    Personally I want the one taking charge to be the right person. But that is not how this will be decided.
