Default Sixers for sale?

Boston Globe - Comcast Spectacor, owner of the Philadelphia 76ers , are attempting to sell the club, according to a well-informed source.

Many employees believe that a sale is on is imminent.

That would be awesome. I hope the Sixers get someone who's not a cheapskate like Snider and the Comcast corporation. Imagine if Croce comes back, he's got a great relationship with AI and was really interested in making the team better during his tenure as Team President.

The Sixers being for sale isn't a good thing. Comcast, for whatever reason, is being really cheap with the Sixers and overspent with the Flyers last year. So you know Snyder has his preference.

But when a team gets sold, the new owners usually cut payroll and winning isn't an immediate priority as is figuring out the best way to make more money.

I admit though, get a billionare to team with Croce and we got something here.

That's the point though. Snider has more interest in his Flyers than he does with the Sixers. Getting someone who is really involved and bring the franchise back to its brighter days is something im just hoping for.

The chances are slim, but he did not rule it out. He just said he wasn't a part of any of those groups.
