    "Melbourne Storm is likely to be sold to a consortium for just $1 in a paperwork transaction that allows News Ltd to leave the game;

    David Gallop will remain as CEO for three to five years;"

    I'll give $5 for Melbourne and then take them to the Alice Springs comp.
    Galloping Goose for another 5 years? - just too depressing.

    Who would buy a team that can win two comps and three minor premierships but still lose over 5 million per year with no prospects of ever making a profit in a city that doesn't care about them?

    Maybe someone who wants a team on the central coast will put their hand up to buy them

    So who gets our share?  The business or the football club?  If it is the football club then it would be also a way for the people to eventually get their team back as well but a lot quicker.

    Just putting "news" in front doesn't put it through the system correctly

    Why retain Gallop?  This is a great chance to give him his marching orders.

    And a $18m "severance" payment is semantics.  It's still providing the Storm with an uneven playing field.  I presume the new entity will have to go into debt to cover the $18m which reduces profit share to the rest for years.
