You know Lynn wouldn't have given up his control voluntarily—he basically was forced out and has been trying to get back in power ever since. Consider the board of directors Lynn installed. They're very wealthy but don't seem to relate to the NFL world. It is a board and an ownership group brought together for the wrong reasons.
