Flyers owner could be taking over RoughRiders
The new owners of the Cedar Rapids RoughRiders are ... the Philadelphia
Flyers. OK, not really the Flyers, but the group that owns the NHL franchise.
A couple of sources have confirmed the likely new owner of the Cedar Rapids
RoughRiders is Comcast Spectacor, a Philadelphiabased sports and entertainment
firm that owns the Flyers, the NBA’s Philadelphia 76ers and Philadelphia
Phantoms of the American Hockey League.
The sources said the deal is not finalized but could be as soon as this
Spectacor owns the Wachovia Center in Philly, home to the Flyers and Sixers,
as well as the soonto-be-torn-down Wachovia Spectrum.
