When John Doerr bought the New England Patriots in January 2018, he knew he wanted to change the culture of the team and, more specifically, its owner.
But the new owner, Thomas Peterffy, had been reluctant to do so, and Doerr wasn’t keen on his desire to get involved in a football-playing franchise in the middle of an economic recession.
Doerr didn’t want to be seen as being a part of the problem.
He didn’t think it would make a difference if he bought the team outright.
In his interview with me, Doerr said, “It’s not like I’m buying a team to get the team back on track.”
Instead, he wanted it to be the one he could get to control the team, and that he could sell at a profit.
He also wanted to get rid of the culture that had come to define the Patriots for more than two decades, and he wanted them to move into a new stadium.
“I don’t want them to be a team that plays in the same building,” Doerr told me.
“And so we’re really looking for a new facility that could be used for two purposes, one is to build a football stadium, and the other is to be able to develop the area around the stadium.”
The Patriots were a sports franchise in New England.
They had been around for more or less two decades.
And in some ways, the Patriots’ past was their present.
In many ways, New England had a rich history that had been largely forgotten by the sports world.
But Doerr and the new owners wanted to be sure that the history of the franchise wasn’t lost.
The Patriots have played in four Super Bowls, won four Super Bibles, and been one of the NFL’s most successful franchises.
It was the only team in the NFL to win a championship in the era of the new television deal in 1996.
The franchise has won four of its last six Super Bowl championships.
The New England team’s history and legacy is something that the team’s owners have been reluctant or unable to change.
For the past 25 years, the team has been a symbol of New England, a city that celebrates its Patriots roots and its Patriots fans.
But it has also been a place of pain, poverty, and discrimination.
The team’s fortunes have declined, its fortunes have been made even worse, and it has been more than a decade since the team won a championship.
It wasn’t until Doerr was asked to take over ownership of the Patriots that he decided to change things.
In January 2018 the Patriots announced that Doerr would step down as CEO of the company.
He became chairman and president of the board, but he had no control over the day-to-day operations of the organization.
He did have the ability to hire and fire his employees.
He had the power to set team policy and appoint his own team executives.
And he had the ability, under certain circumstances, to sell the team at a loss.
“If I don’t have control over things, it would be like taking over the company and taking it over and not letting me control anything,” Doherty told me, as he left the team office.
But, Doherty continued, he couldn’t let the Patriots go the way it had been before, and so he wanted his share of control.
“As CEO, I want to control everything that goes on,” he told me over the phone.
“The team, the stadium, the equipment, the everything.
I don?t want to take control over it.
I want a team with a future.”
The New York Jets did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Doerr’s hiring.
But former Jets owner Woody Johnson told the New Jersey Times that he was “very excited” about the hiring of Doerr.
“We had an ownership group that included a lot of great people,” Johnson said.
“John is a great businessman, he has been through a lot and he knows the market, the value of the players, and I think he knows that the players are looking for him to make a change in the Jets organization.”
The Jets were in the midst of a major restructuring at the time.
Johnson said that Doherty was one of his biggest assets.
“When he was in the room, I don?” he said.
He added that the company was a “good fit.”
Doherty is a former president of New York City’s Taxi Workers’ Union, and in addition to the Jets, he was the CEO of a number of other companies.
He left the city government to work as a consultant, and before joining the Jets in 2010 he was part of a group that had a deal with the city of New Orleans to redevelop the Superdome, a historic building that has been used as a venue for concerts and other events.
It has also played host to Super Bowl games, including the 2009 Super Bowl XLVII, which the Jets won. Doherty
