What They're Saying: Shahid Khan

"Our role would be to provide a world-class venue. [The FA] will have a pool of money of about 600 million pounds [$840 million] that can be invested into the core mission of the FA, which is English football and their ultimate goal of winning a World Cup. Wembley is a great stadium and you want to get it configured to hold Super Bowl and World Cup finals."

-- Shahid Khan, owner of the NFL's Jacksonville Jaguars and English club Fulham on his offer to buy Wembley Stadium, which he would use as a second home for the Jaguars. His offer to the English FA for the iconic stadium -- the FA would also keep the 400 million pounds ($560 million) it generates from cup and national team matches -- has met with stiff resistance from English fans.
