Dave Boling of the Tacoma News Tribune writes that new Seattle Seahawks owner Peter McLoughlin is now working for a man that has lost a ton of money recently. He also writes that McLoughlin has earned the trust of his new boss: Microsoft co-founder and Seattle Seahawks owner Paul Allen.
Yes, Paul Allen is wealthy. But the Forbes magazine article that listed him as the world’s 17th richest man also showed that his wealth has gone from $28.2 billion in 2001 to a mere $12.7 billion in 2010. I don’t care who you are, you drop more than $15 billion in nine years and you’re going to notice it.
McLoughlin met more than once with Allen, and they reportedly had a "shared vision" of the future of the Seahawks and Sounders. His meeting with Schneider and Carroll also revealed a shared vision. And he received their stamp of approval. Again, time will reveal whether the franchise benefits from this widespread, mutual perspective.
