After hearing what everybody has said about Ralph Wilson one thing struck me. Bill Pollin said Ralph Wilson said he was a man of his word and that his handshake was always good enough. Another thing is how much he loved his team and that he was offered many times to move and declined. I have a feeling that a had a gentlemen agreement with some one to buy the team and keep them in town. He loved this team and Buffalo to much to let be swept away. I believe that his wife knows more than she lets known and the deal is set which is why there is reports that the sale will be done in October. R

Well it has, but the other thread used the enter key, and this one doesn't.

There are no handshake agreements that can be made from beyond the grave.  There can be no prearranged sale of the team.  That is expressly forbidden in estate planning law.
