A bleg on professional sports teams

For a paper I'm finishing up I need an example of a professional sports team that is owned by its players. In the conclusion to the paper I make an argument, based on the reference point approach to the theory of the firm, as to why no professional team will be owned by its players. While I have come across many different forms of ownership for sports teams I have yet to come across one which is owned by it players.

Anyone know of such an example?

I can only think of a few English football clubs who are owned by fans, wouldn't a team owned by players be inherently unstable due to the nature of selection? I mean, you can't exactly drop the goalkeeper who has just invested in new kit for all the outfielders.
