Not sure what that's all about

First it was Jimmy Buffet.  Then the Estafans (Gloria and Emilio) bought a minority stake in the team.  Now Marc Anthony buys in as well.
They're all moves to make the team more representative of the local community.  But what the heck does that mean, anyway?  In Anthony's case, they had a big press conference in NY, and the commish was there.  It was also announced that he (Anthony, not Goodell, though that would be funny) was going to sing the national anthem at a MNF game this season as a part of Spanish Heritage month.
It all just seems so....I dunno...forced?
I was amused that Anthony also brought his wife (one J Lo) to the event, since "she owns half of everything, anyway."
Now as for J Lo, you may recall a movie called "Out of Sight" where she played a federal agent tracking George Clooney's character.  It was set in Miami, and in one scene she was wearing a Marino jersey.
So here's life imitating art....

My take on the part ownerships: correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't more part owners = more available revenue at Ross' disposable should next season be uncapped?
