LOL at Jeter's British Virgin Island Marlins

Marlins claim British Virgin Islands citizenship to avoid going to court in Miami


According to the Miami Herald, the Marlins are trying to avoid going to court in Miami by claiming that their team should be considered a corporate citizen of the British Virgin Islands. The basis for this is a little convoluted. Marlins Teamco is a corporation that was formed by Jeter and Marlins majority owner Bruce Sherman specifically to buy the Marlins. One of the corporations that owns a minority stake in Marlins Teamco is based in the British Virgin Islands.

Oh, and LOL at Loria.


As part of a 2009 agreement, the Jeffrey Loria-owned Marlins agreed that if the team was sold within 10 years, the county would get 5 percent of the profits from that sale. The team, which was bought by Loria for $152 million, was sold in 2017 to the Jeter/Sherman majority group for $1.2 billion. Loria, however, claimed that he somehow lost $140 million from the sale, so neither he nor the Marlins owed the county any profits.

So, uh, if they're foreign citizens, in this "political climate," any chance the team can get deported? 

In soccer I believe they call it religation. Either way. 

Oakland can't even support one team and you want to send another team there?

I honestly believe that both Florida teams should go away.

Think that was Chicago.... but Tampa doesnt draw much bigger than that....
