  I'm guessing KC have new owners
So, yesterday the KC Star revealed that there's a third group looking at buying the Wiz. Today, the paper is reporting that potential owner Andrew Murstein is no longer interested in buying the team. It seems Murstein wants to own a sports team and that MLS really weren't interested in his money.

I can really only think the reason he was brushed aside was because he wanted to move the team. But why is he now interested in an Arena Football team in KC? It's not like he doesn't have the money to be able to afford the losses he'll probably see at first.

My only guess is that one of the other offers has been accepted and we'll be hearing something in the not too distant future.

Nice parting shot from Murstein though...
“Like in the ‘Wizard of Oz:’ ‘I’m melting, I’m melting and then I’m about to disappear.’ ”
There's got to be more to this story but I guess we'll never know what really happened.
