"The way that he could sell the Caps was to make this agreement that upon his death, Ted would have certain rights," Robert Pollin said. "Our side, in my opinion, is certainly honoring Ted's rights in spirit and to the letter. I don't think of it as the team is for sale. We are certainly fulfilling everything that my father and Ted and his partners agreed to. And where it ends up, you never know in a negotiation until a negotiation is over."

Robert Pollin on the impending sale to Ted Leonsis. I'm having trouble figuring out if this means anything - he might just be saying it's not a classic sale because Abe and Ted agreed on the parameters of the negotiations already - but it's definitely the kind of quote that takes you a few minutes to figure out.
