If that list isn't a bunch of hooey I don't know what is. BUCS??? WTF. Redskins... he's a horrible owner, who hasn't done anything since taking over.

Come on people... we ALL know Benson belongs where he is. The rest can be up for debate, but not that.

i cant think of another owner who wouldn't go to his own team's games (the tiger stadium ones) because he feared for his life.

I believe he was apartment shopping in SA. The "fear factor" story sounded better.

No I am over this whole Benson is the devil thing. I think its time we but that behind us and move on...

Give Benson a little credit, I mean he has had his teams in the playoffs and someone of the others have not. Some teams have a lot a talent and nothing happens. The guy who wrote this is bias!!! Bucs owner at 4 and Snyder at 5 because he's trying??? GIVE ME A BREAK. 7 McNair, I got 2 words for you, Reggie Bush. When did that team done anything? Ok here's another I love, Dolphins lets see there was Ricky williams nightmare, Marino GM flop, and Saban. Steelers at 10??? how many SB's have they racked up and HC's have they had, move them up thank you very much.

Now those of you who wish Benson so late in the ranks... look at 11. Didn't the family move the team to INDY undercover of darkness??? At least Benson bought the team to prevent the Saints from being moved, if many of you may not recall. I am not saying Benson should be ranked up there but he doesn't deserve to be one of the worse either.

There is just way, way, WAY to much wrong with the decision making of ranking the owners that this can't be taken seriously. The writter brings no credability to his OPINION what-so-ever.

Benson was last last year, and he moved up one. Sounds about right. Taking a team under the cover of night is one thing, actively trying to move your team after the worst natural disaster in US history is downright scummy, and something that should never be forgottem.

Kraft must be really bad compared to Benson....sheesh

Euph has a point, and I know there is a lot of emotion in this debate. But Benson did stay, regardless of the reasons. He did sign an extension to 2010 with the city. He did tell loomis to get Bush signed. It's not like he's intentionally tanking the team so he can move it. They signed Brees and gave Grant the big contract. The Saints are just about average in terms of cap space and there are some big signings on the horizon (Smith, Meachum).

Before you tear me a new one, I realize that Benson threatening to move post-katrina was reprehensible, but at least he committed to winning once he decided to stay...that's all I'm sayin'.
