    Looking at a broader spectrum than just this year, who do you think is the worst NFL owner?

    Say what you will about Al Davis and Dan Snyder, at least they want to win. (And Al has won before)

    Mike Brown doesn't even seem to care about trying to win.

    Come on guys this is too easy. William Clay Ford is THE worst owner by miles. Just take the Matt Millen era into consideraation and you have your answer. Matt Millen didin't even live in the Detroit area while he decimated the Lions as the GM. He communted from PA part time during the week.

    I didn't think about Ford. He and Brown are neck and neck.

    W. Clay Ford but Dan Snyder's like a misguided bureaucrat, plugging in this guy here and that guy there and making the team worse by ruining the level of consistency needed. Al Davis used to do that, but I don't think he's in charge anymore. And if he is "officially" in charge, no way he's actually able to function...

    I live in cincinnati....Trust me it's Mike Brown.

    There isn't even a close 2nd.

    Snyder wants to win just doesn't know **** about running their team.
    Davis/Cable have Oaktown in a much better position
    And Ford as well has Detroit on the upside not downside.

    Spanos has got to be in the Top 10. But the Lions owner has got to be #1. Team's been horrible for more then a decade.

    Bengals have had 15 miserable years and even on the good ones, Brown keeps screwing up and not doing what he needs to do to give us a winning season

    Ding ding. We have a winner! He's the combination of Jerry Jones, Al Davis, and Bill Bidwell combined into one. Cheap... pig-headed... and thinks he actually knows what he's doing as a "GM" for his franchise when he's really running them into the ground.

    Being from Detroit I have to second this one. W.C. Ford and the Lions haven't won a Championship since 1957... he11, I wasn't even born yet. This guy has made one boneheaded move after another... with the worst being matt" numbnutz" millen. In my mind there is no one as inept and disconnected with his team than Ford is with the Lions... I heard he still thinks Joey Harrington is still the QB...LOL... just kidding.

    I would have to go with M Brown. Many years of horrible managment and when the team finally started to show signs of life, he took the legs out from under his coach by welcoming back the non-team players that the coach wanted gone.

    Agreed! IMO Snyder.. He's been trying to buy a championship for a long while now and isn't retaining the coaching staff. Also, he seems to be more of a fan than an owner. Being buddy buddy with the players wont get you anywhere. They will love you as an owner, but when you develop relationships that you cannot (or have a hard time) part with, your team just becomes stagnant.

    How does Snyder trying to buy a championship and being a fan make him a worse owner than a guy like Mike Brown who cares more about saving money than winning football games?

    Snyder is horrible because he doesn't know what the hell he's doing but at least his intentions are in the right place.

    my feeling about him has developed from my feelings about the yanks, sox, and cubs. They are whats wrong with pro sports. but then again, pro sports is kinda fixed with its rich get richer theme.

    This except that Spanos is bottom 5 by default of having the Lions, Browns, and Bengals owners being worser.

    Just because somebody disagrees with you regarding what it takes to win doesn't mean they don't want to win.

    Very true. BUt he clearly doesn't if he was trying to hawlk our team to la this year! I just doubt he really wants to win if he won't shake things up after this. I mean marty got fired after a 14-2 season. IF we can't get rid of norv the eunuch after 2 very embarrassing years in a row we might as well hire ryan leaf as our qb coach.

    Maybe he just doesn't think Norv is the problem. :icon_shrug:

    You can call him stupid for that but that doesn't mean he doesn't care about winning.

    Marty only got canned because he was trying to break Dean's anti-nepotism policy. If he didn't try to hire Kurt he wouldn't have been canned.
