    I was reading a post on Bill Davidson and it occurred to me that he is a very old man. Overall, he has been a terrific owner. Then I suddenly had a terrible thought. If he dies soon and the franchise goes up for sale...what if...what if...

    Please Ford family...PLEASE DON'T...No...I won't think of it...

    Good point and no ones really talking about it. Only thing I have heard is from someone else who heard that its going to stay in the family. So I would assume Mrs Davidson is going to take over.

    Davidson has a daughter. Not sure if she is really business savy though. The last time I saw her was when they were honoring Mr D. last season and they put his name along the baseline. She looked like a hippie. In any event I am quite sure she can hire people to help her and Tom Wilson is like the son Mr. D never had.

    there was an interview early in the season about it... davidson will be the owner till he dies, but its already been set up for the team to pass down and stay in family...

    now what happens once that person takes over is anybody's guess.

    He was married a couple of years ago unless they got divorced.

    I am no Davidson expert or anything. For those of you that don't know his wife is much younger than him. I would guess by at least 20 years but I am not sure. He has a Son and Daughter.

    They had the whole fam at the Palace a couple of years ago when they retired a jersey for him. His Son looked kind of like a shmuck but appearances can be deceiving so you never know.
