June 30, 2004 - A federal judge said Canadian businessman Edgar Kaiser should have the same $15 million buying opportunity that former quarterback John Elway had in 1998 to become a minority owner of the Denver Broncos. More than four months after a jury determined Kaiser was cheated out of his right to become a team owner, U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch offered a "workable remedy" Tuesday to determine how Kaiser should be compensated.
