Lately for some reason when I poke fun of Alzheimiers Davis I strangely feel like the Autistic kid needling the Mongoloid.

Unreal that the Steelers were purchased for $2,500. Now they're worth over $1 billion. Nice investment.

Pats take 2nd with $175 million in 1994 and $1.3 billion just 15 years later.

I wish my 401(k) performed like that.

a year ago Bowlen would have been on that list, the fiasco this offseason has really hurt his image league-wide

Clark Hunt is going to be on this list within five years.

He could have come up with 100 excuses to keep Carl and Herm this offseason. He slashed their throats swiftly and quietly and brought in the hottest GM candidate in years. Then he got the **** out of the way.

And he's only 43.

Did I mention he's poured in a ****load of his family's money on the new stadium?

I still think Parcells doesn't get enough credit for putting together that nucleus in New England

Wow, who would want this face as an owner when you're 0-16?

Either Kaiser's lawyers really suck or the judge was bought. There's no way around it.

Seriously? What is one reasonable excuse to keep either of those failures on in any capacity?

Rebuilding or injuries.

Or, he could have gone half-assed and kept Herm while firing Carl.

Ok. So based on this you're willing to crown him a top 5 owner? Of course, because you prove to be an idiot every time you post anything.

Bowlen is not the majority owner. He owns roughly 30% of the team and his family already owns the rest through a series of corporations. His mother appears to own the majority of the stock while the other siblings own lesser shares, including his sister, but Pat is definitely only a minority equity partner.

Kaiser lost in court because PB had smarter lawyers. The link I posted goes into it.

I read the entire legal brief. It's long and convoluted, makes use of half a dozen confusing points of intersection between law and contractural obligation...and even after reading and understanding the legal postiion...I came away with nearly the same viewpoint. Bowlen's legal team even hired a linguist to explain why the clear language of the agreement wasn't really saying what it says.

Brushing up on Pat's history has made me more, not less reluctant to trust anything he says.

I agree.

But he won't beat out Al Davis for #1, no way ... the best you can hope is #2

Kind of ... IIRC, about 10 years ago Eddie DeBartolo was convicted of some serious gambling and organized crime type crimes. So rather than be kicked out by the league, he gave the team to his wife (sister?).

He might still be calling some shots there, I dunno.

Want to see ROI? Look at the Giants purchase price.
