.....This article on the generational change of ownership in the NFL appeared in last Sunday's N.Y. Times, but I just got around to discussing it with my buddies last night.

Most interesting is this graphic, which lists team ownership in order of when they took possession.

What I did not know: The Arizona Cardinals have been owned by the Bidwill family since 1932, when Charles Bidwill bought the Chicago Cardinals. That's quite a tenure for a franchise that has been less than successful on the field.

Tragically enough, Charles Bidwill would would die in April 1947, just a few months before the Cardinals would go on to win the 1947 NFL Championship.....
