"You know, life doesn't always move just as you'd like it...Of course, if I had my druthers, this would have been over a long time ago. But there are a lot of things that have happened, and I wouldn't do anything differently.
I know I've heard some criticism of us, particularly in Washington, which I think is unfair but everybody's entitled to their opinion. But look, if you were buying a team the first question you'd ask is, `What's the stadium situation and what's my lease?'
When I know we are getting close, I'll make a decision."
