Trial Begins in Suit Over Broncos: The trial pitting former Denver Broncos owner Edgar Kaiser against current owner Patrick Bowlen began jury selection today in Colorado. Kaiser, who sold the team to Bowlen in 1984, claims that Bowlen "cheated him out of the chance to buy back stakes in the team years later." In addition, the suit claims that Bowlen misrepresented himself as the sole buyer of the team and then repeatedly violated Kaiser's right of first refusal by secretly transferring shares of the team among members of his family.
