Glazers mum on Man U

By Associated Press
Published May 26, 2005

During the news conference in Washington, D.C., to announce Tampa as the site of the 2009 Super Bowl, Bucs owner Malcolm Glazer declined to answer questions about his controversial takeover of the world's richest soccer club, Manchester United.

Glazer didn't respond to a reporter's query, and his son Bryan said: "We're here today to celebrate the Super Bowl in Tampa in 2009. It's a very important day and I would hope you'd respect that."

Another question about United was asked, and NFL commissioner Paul Tagliabue glanced over at Glazer, who smiled but didn't say anything.

After the news conference, Glazer walked away without responding to further questioning.

Many Manchester United fans have vocally opposed and publicly demonstrated against Glazer's $1.47-billion takeover of the club.
