Why do people keep spelling the Rogers last name with a D?

Why do people feel they need to correct grammar on other peoples posts? Are you OCD?
HT to the person who noted that it isn't grammar that's being corrected, it's spelling. But the answer is: So they'll know whom you are talking about.
There is no Rodgers Corporation with interest in the Bills (so far as we know). And since it has to actually be a single person, not a company, as majority owner, the name is kind of important.
In case anyone cares, Edward Rogers, son of the deceased Ted (who made the Bills in TO deal) is the Deputy Chairman and is on the Board of Rogers. Guy Laurence is the President and CEO of the company. Phil Lind is the Executive VP and Vice Chairman. These are the heavy hitters you would hear about.
Ed Rogers is probably the guy who would have the net worth and liquid assets available to make a purchase. His family has a net worth north of 7 billion.
All the same, he hasn't been mentioned as particularly passionate about this kind of acquisition in any way.
When the Jays are discussed in the media (since they are Rogers-owned) by the higher-ups, it's always Keith Pelley and Phil Lind who are weighing in. This might be meaningless given that baseball teams can be owned by corporate entities while a single person needs to be majority buyer / owner for an NFL franchise.
