Reading the coverage of the Tennessee Titans…
Looking at the big questions about Titans’ ownership after the death of Bud Adams, with Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean.
While Adams' two daughters and the family of his deceased son each get a third of the team, a controlling owner will have to be determined. The expectation is that Susie Smith will be that person and then her husband, Tommy Smith, will control the team.
Per Wyatt: “Even before Adams’ death, family members, including Smith, had been in communication with team officials in recent months, so that won’t be a dramatic change.”
To which I say: As Wyatt points out, the league will want to check things out and it will take some time before things are official. I agree that big changes at the top won’t come quickly, if they come at all. But there are rumblings that Smith could start being more hands on in the middle of November.
