Hal Steinbrenner: Yankees Not for Sale

Mike Stobe/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- The New York Yankees were reportedly up for sale for potentially as much as $3 billion, according to the New York Daily News Thursday.

Still, Yankees part-owner Hal Steinbrenner denied those rumors.

"I just learned of the Daily News story," Steinbrenner said in a statement Thursday.  "It is pure fiction.  The Yankees are not for sale.  I expect that the Yankees will be in my family for many years to come."

Hal's father, the late George Steinbrenner purchased the club for $8.8 million in 1973 and the Steinbrenner family has brought seven World Series titles to New York since.

Last year, according to Forbes, the New York Yankees were the third-most valuable sports franchise.

Lions' Suh Ranked Fourth on 'Forbes' Disliked List

Gregory Shamus/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- According to a poll with Forbes Magazine, Detroit Lions defensive end Ndamukong Suh ranked fourth on its list of most-disliked NFL players.

Just four months ago, Suh led the poll of most-liked players but his actions during the Thanksgiving game against the Green Bay Packers -- when he stomped on offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith on national television -- may have had something to do with this recent poll performance.

Suh had an appeal score of 71 percent in the most-liked category but now sits at 51 percent disliked, according to the magazine.

"He went from being so popular to being a pariah in one season," said Stephen Master, Nielsen's vice president of sports, according to Forbes.
