All the talk about Sean Combs or other celebrities completely misses this one important thing. Having millions is not going to do it. It's going to take a billion to even get into the real bidding. 

And with Belk, he already owns a minority share, adding in JR's percentage would make him a very strong majority holder.

That is true but celebrities/athletes could easily go the Jeter route.

They would probably increase his share to 49% and bring in a new minority owner to make up the difference.

That would make sense, Belk has been a big part of the team over the years.  Sponsoring Cam, signs around the stadium at one point, etc.

Jeter has no real say on what goes on with the Marlins.  They just got his face out there.  The real owners are behind the scenes.

My pick for the Carolina Panthers recently opened majority ownership position:

 

Current Carolina Panthers minority share holder Tim Belk

Relatively young (60) local guy. Would never move the team. Family has strong ties to the Carolinas. 

Already has the Belk Bowl at Bank of America Stadium. Obviously loves football. 

Recently retired from Belk. Plenty of free time. 

Family is worth billions. 

 

So Tim Belk would have to buy Jerrys full 47 percent or does just needs to own a larger percentage than everyone else?

Yeah, they got a good deal there.  They have Jeter as the face and he gets blamed for everything.

...and the fans are going in on him right now heehee!!!  Trading away all their good hitters.  If they are not now, they will be the Cleveland Browns of Baseball next year.

He would need to increase his share to become a majority owner.  I'm assuming Richardson's kids and wife aren't going to sell their minority shares and that no other owner will sell their share either.
