The former Dodgers owner is one of the shadiest figures to ever own a US franchise. According to the LA Times, he was the most hated man in Los Angeles. He pulled over $100 million in team assets to fund his lavish lifestyle. That definitely won’t help you win the love of the fans.
He managed to run up massive debts, even owing money to legendary Dodgers announcer Vin Scully. Then there was his messy divorce with his former wife Jamie. After the MLB raised concerns over the franchise’s finances, he finally reached a deal to put them up for sale.
One of the worst owners in the world, Snyder has made a total mess out of the Redskins. Fans totally despise him and want him gone. You can’t blame them either. In 2008, many season ticket holders couldn’t afford to pay because of the recession. Snyder’s response was to sue them.
The team has also been dramatically unsuccessful on the field. You can get away with being a terrible person as long as the franchise is winning. You could call them consistent, but consistently awful. From ineptitude on the field to the dysfunction in the board room, his reign of terror is crippling the franchise.
The Raiders are one of the most distinctive franchises in the US. With their black and silver colors, their fanbase is famously fanatical. They’re part of Oakland’s fabric or were until Mark Davis lost patience with the city. From 2020 forward, they’ll be playing their home games in Las Vegas.
After struggling to get support for a new stadium, Davis gave up trying. Against the will of the fans, he decided to move the franchise to Sin City. After their final game in Oakland, a defeat to the Jaguars, he showed no remorse or sympathy to the plight of those left behind. He’s heartless and has a terrible haircut.
