    Texas Rangers Go Voluntarily Bankrupt
    by Eric Griffey
    Today, the Texas Rangers Baseball Partners announced a plan to facilitate the sale of the Texas Rangers to a group led by Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan. The club and the land around the ballpark will be sold to the group for about $575 million. The sale is getting done through a voluntary pre-packaged bankruptcy process that will apparently satisfy the Hicks’ Sports Group massive debt to creditors — though the creditors were not made aware of this process before hand, and it is unclear whether or not they have legal grounds to block the process.

    Hicks owes $525 million to 40 different creditors.

    Liverpool co-owner Tom Hicks has vociferously defended his record at Anfield, claiming that the club have improved under the stewardship of himself and George Gillett and revealing that Rafael Benitez will be given a "substantial" transfer budget this summer.

    Hicks and Gillett decided last month to sell the club after more than three tempestuous years of infighting and fan protests, with Hicks confirming that the duo hope to complete the sale by the end of the year.

    But despite mounting criticism over the way the pair have conducted their affairs since taking over in March 2007, Hicks claimed Liverpool had actually improved under their leadership.

    Having posted their worst Premier League finish for 11 years - seventh - speculation has grown about the futures of Benitez, striker Fernando Torres and captain Steven Gerrard.

    However, Hicks said although they were in the process of finding new buyers, he and Gillett did not want to cash in on their prize assets - despite the debt of parent company Kop Holdings rising to £351 million last summer - and were prepared to invest heavily in the squad.

    "We have no intention of selling any of our top players and we have a substantial transfer budget in place,'' Hicks told Sky Sports News. There's so much misinformation about transfer spending.

    "It's more than doubled under the ownership of George and myself from the previous three years and we will make a significant investment this summer. It's really about getting the right players.

    "There's been so much misinformation put out by people who have their own agendas and it's unfortunate. But the truth is the club is much better off than it was three years ago.

    "We've done our best. I'm disappointed on a personal level that are efforts have not been received as well as I wish they had have been.''

    Benitez has suggested he needs at least £50 million to get the club back on track in terms of challenging for the Champions League places never mind the Premier League as they did in the 2008/09 season. Torres has also called for "four or five'' quality signings this summer.

    Hicks said he was prepared to make allowances for one season, after watching the club struggle badly over the recent campaign.

    "We're all disappointed with where we finished this year," Hicks said. "People forget that we almost won the Premier League last year (finishing a close second to Manchester United with a record 86 points). We had injuries and players performing below their level of expectation.''

    Former chairman David Moores admitted on Wednesday that he "hugely regrets'' selling to the Americans. In 2007 they paid £470 million for Liverpool, but having incurred so much debt in the purchase and subsequent running of the club, many potential investors baulked at the asking price of almost double that set by Hicks last month.

    However, the Texan believes that could be a fair price for a club which has reached two Champions League finals, winning one, since 2005.

    "I think I have said £600-800million is not an unrealistic value range, but the market's the market. We'll see,'' he said. "We will sell the club. We're not going to sell it to the wrong group, we're not going to sell it for the wrong price, we're going to do it in a very thoughtful way.

    "I don't anticipate it will be done necessarily before the beginning of the next season. We hope it gets done by the end of the calendar year.

    "We're more concerned about finding the right next owner, somebody that can make the investment in the club to get the stadium built, and to let Liverpool be the best possible football club in the world.

    "The new stadium is fully designed now and the global financing markets are back so I think with the change of ownership coming we'll be able to have the new stadium built for Liverpool.''

    I feel that they are repeating the same words/sentence every season. End up no buyer. And more debt. And then keep saying it is improving.

    Rangers, Stars owner Hicks eager to exit pro sports
    06:37 AM CDT on Wednesday, May 26, 2010

    By GARY JACOBSON and BRENDAN CASE / The Dallas Morning News

    Tom Hicks said he stands to lose "a couple hundred million" dollars on the Texas Rangers and Dallas Stars, but he expects to make it up when he sells his stake in a leading English soccer team.

    He also said he will be glad to exit the professional sports business.

    "It's never been my primary business," he said in an interview Tuesday with The Dallas Morning News. "And it's a business I no longer want to pay the price to be in."

    One thing he won't miss is the publicity that comes with owning pro sports teams, he said.

    "It's a brutal invasion of privacy," he said.

    Hicks is embroiled in a controversial sale of the Texas Rangers, and the outcome is far from certain.

    The team filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection Monday, saying it aimed to expedite a sale to an investor group headed by Pittsburgh attorney Chuck Greenberg and Rangers president Nolan Ryan.

    The team also sought a speedy or "prepackaged" bankruptcy in which the sale could be done in July. That way, new owners could take control before the July 31 player trading deadline, a key on-field consideration as the first-place Rangers prepare to make a run for the playoffs.

    Unpredictable outcome
    But the outcome of the bankruptcy case is hard to predict.

    In a Tuesday court filing, U.S. Trustee William Neary said the case should be treated as a traditional bankruptcy, not a prepackaged one. He said he would hold a meeting June 3 to form a creditors committee.

    Traditional bankruptcies typically take months to resolve. Meanwhile, some creditors argue that Hicks' proposal doesn't give them enough money.

    "What they did is going to cause a nuclear war here," said a person close to the creditor group. "Chuck Greenberg and Nolan Ryan will have control of the team by the trade deadline. But it will be the trade deadline of 2020."

    Last year, Hicks Sports Group, owner of the Rangers and Stars, defaulted on $525 million in loans. The bankruptcy proceedings that began Monday include only the Rangers, not HSG or the Stars.

    The Rangers transaction could end up giving the lenders up to about $280 million, although estimates vary. Later, they also would stand to get money from a sale of the Stars.

    In a statement Monday, Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig said he was prepared to submit the Greenberg-Ryan group to other baseball owners for their approval.

    That's important because three-quarters of the owners must approve a sale, Hicks said.

    "The creditors seriously misjudge how professional sports work," Hicks said. "It's a club. It's a club that 75 percent of the people have to decide they want to admit somebody into. It can't be forced to be sold to the highest bidder."

    Creditors' objections
    At a four-hour hearing Tuesday in Fort Worth before Judge Michael Lynn, creditors objected to the prepackaged plan and suggested they could force two Hicks Sports Group entities into separate involuntary bankruptcies. Lynn said both sides will present arguments on the team's reorganization plan June 15, and he set July 9 as a possible date by which the Rangers could emerge from bankruptcy.

    The Greenberg-Ryan deal is valued at $575 million, the Rangers said, including the team, assumed liabilities and an accompanying land deal.

    Under the bankruptcy plan, Hicks would receive some cash from the sale of the team – $5 million for funds he lent the Rangers a year ago.

    The land deal is valued at about $75 million. That includes $5 million cash, a $53.1 million note, assumption of a $12.8 million obligation related to the Centerfield Office Building and a 1 percent equity stake in the new ownership group.

    In addition, Hicks would receive game tickets, parking passes, the title of chairman emeritus for three years and "other rights customary to former owners in the sale of professional sports teams," according to court filings.

    Liverpool FC sale
    Hicks said Tuesday that his efforts to sell his other teams continue.

    He said he expects to sell soccer team Liverpool FC in 12 to 18 months. He continued to say that the English Premier League team – one of the world's most valuable sports brands – could fetch "600 to 800" million pounds – or about $860 million to $1.15 billion at current exchange rates. Others place the value at significantly less.

    Hicks and Colorado businessman George Gillett acquired the team in 2007 in a deal valued at nearly 220 million pounds, which at the time was worth about $430 million because the pound was stronger in relation to the dollar at the time.

    The effort to sell the Stars is "quietly" progressing, Hicks said. Still, he added, "hockey has some issues," especially outside the Northeast and Canada. He said he could be a small minority partner with a group buying the Stars.

    The Stars gave Hicks what he has described as his fondest moment as a team owner: the team's Stanley Cup victory in 1999.

    Under his ownership, the Rangers won two division titles, the last in 1999. But they never won a league championship or World Series, despite high payrolls.

    "I lost a lot of money," he said. "That was only because I wanted to win."

    LIVERPOOL AND SPURS IN KEEPER HUNT

    Posted 27/05/10 11:56


    Liverpool and Tottenham are believed to be leading the race to sign Croatian goalkeeper Marijan Antolovic.

    The 6ft 5in keeper is only 21 and has attracted a host of admirers this season with domestic side HNK Cibalia.

    Antolovic set a domestic record of going 551 minutes without conceding a goal to help Cibalia claim their best-ever finish of third in Croatia's top flight.

    The youngster was also named the league's best keeper and Cibalia's sporting director Drazen Pernar has confirmed that several top sides have approached them regarding his status.

    "Some of the biggest clubs are after Antolovic, like Spurs and Liverpool," Pernar told The Sun.

    "Every day we get more enquiries about him."

    Antolovic has made three appearances for Croatia's Under-21s and is yet to be handed his senior debut.

    MOURINHO A FAN OF ENGLISH DUO



    Posted 27/05/10 12:54




    Prospective Real Madrid boss Jose Mourinho admits England midfielders Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard are the type of players he will look to bring to the Bernabeu.

    Mourinho is expected to be formally announced as Real's new coach in the next few days and speculation has already begun over which players he will look to bring in to shape the team in his own image.

    Gerrard - who Mourinho tried to sign from Liverpool while he was Chelsea manager - and Lampard, who played under the Portuguese coach at Stamford Bridge, are two that Mourinho admires.

    Mourinho told Spanish sports daily AS: "I like players in the final part of their careers.

    "I love to have some players who are 33 or 34 years old...they are players that you buy and you won't recover this money, but if they give you good performances for two or three years you've got your money's worth.

    "Both (Gerrard and Lampard) are great players who always give everything."

    Another England international, Ashley Cole, has also been linked with a move to Real.
