Still interested in owning United

No not the metrostars, but former Duke basketball player Brian Davis looks to still be part of United's new ownership group, according to Thomas Heath's article in the Washington Post. The first half of the article deals with an attempt to purchase the NBA Grizzlies, the info that's of interest to DC fans comes towards the end. Particularly, the nugget that Kevin Payne heads the group trying to buy the team, reportedly for $33 million.

We'll get news about the purchase when it happens, and although we'd all like it to happen sooner rather than later, undoubtedly there are a ton of other factors we'll never know about. The lack of an ownership group hasn't affected the front office's ability to resign Gomez and Moreno or put a hold on looking for new players to sign.
