The Glazers

The Glazers won the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their team won a Super Bowl in 2020. This was a phenomenal achievement for the franchise but fans don’t universally love them. They also own Manchester United but made mistakes that they can’t hide. United fans loathe the family because they’re running the team into the ground.

They try to throw millions of dollars at problems but they don’t have a clear plan about anything. This means that the club has many overpaid and unmotivated players. Furthermore, the stadium is deteriorating because they haven’t invested in it. This makes many fans hate them a lot (via The Athletic).

Jimmy Haslam

Haslam is the king of truck stops across the United States. He also owns the Cleveland Browns as well as the Columbus Crew. This makes him the most significant and influential sports franchise owner in Ohio. But he makes mistakes like they’re going out of fashion. Haslam believed that Johnny Manziel was the future star of the tortured franchise.

Then he alienated many fans when he handed a massive contract to DeShaun Watson. This was massively polarizing because of Watson’s ongoing legal case. Many fans didn’t want to follow a team whose star player sexually harassed women. Haslam thought that his billions would make them forget but he was wrong (via New York Post).
