Hmmm...

I watched it again and thought it is strange that people forget the detail about the transaction to Bennett.

It turns out (based on Wally Walker) that it was a guy named Ed Evans that led the group to buy the team. Since Evans had ties with Seattle and mutual acquaintances vouched for Evans' intentions to keep the team in Seattle.

bennett didn't shake anyone's hand until the press conference (or really late in the transaction).

Could we really entirely blame Shultz? Dude and the rest of the owners didn't know of Bennett being part of the group.

Ultimately Ed Evans pulled out or was forced out. And Bennett took over at the head owner.
