Even if you agree that hinting or tempting to move the team in the wakes of Katrina you can't blame the business side of trying to negociate a long term deal. You can't place him last on the list for just that. There has been more worse things other owners have done to top that and not run the team effectively. This is what you should be ranking the owners on how they manage/run the teams overall, not "well I am bitter because my p**** hurts". We have had winning teams and lots of excitment with the organization since he bought the team.

The real discussion is how the owners are running the teams, and what they have accomplished since there ownership has begun. If you want a legit rankings you need to take more into account and not just randomly put names on a list... BUCS at 4 WTF? Do you seriously think they should even be in the top 10?

Okay, let's see. Tom Benson. Owned the team 22 years. 2 playoff wins. 1 NFC champ game appearance. No Superbowl appearances. Gets 20 million dollars in welfare from the state every year whether the teams wins or loses(only team that does so). Overall record of the team since he has taken ownership, 169-182. And no less than 3 threats to relocate. 4 negotiations of deals that has not expired. And trying to use the worst natural disaster in US history to move the team. Maybe he should be unranked.

I totally agree with you I for one am sick to death from hearing how he wants to move the team seems like every damn year we are threatned with it.

IMO both Benson and Loomis stepped it up, they have the Saints heading in the right direction, improved the team and both of them are responsible for the success that the Saints are starting to have.
I'm just enjoying the moments.
I too give Benson a lot of credit for a job well done, there are worst owners in the NFL compared to Benson.
