#32 Oakland Raiders
The skinny
The Raiders dominated the AFL for much of the 1960s and the NFL during the 1970s. But based on just about every yardstick of competence the franchise has been terrible this decade. The Raiders are in the bottom third of the league in player costs-per-win, winning percentage and brand value. Much of the decline in the franchise has been due to bad draft picks and expensive free-agent signings that have not panned out. Team owner Al Davis, who is 80 and in poor health, has failed to get the new stadium he so badly needs and has angered many fans and politicians with lawsuits and transporting his team from Oakland to Los Angeles and then back to Oakland. Whoever succeeds Davis as managing partner has a lot of rebuilding to do. article ends

I guess having a top 8 pick or better for 6 seasons has broke the bank.
Anyone who reads my posts know I am not a fan of Al Davis, even I am starting to feel bad for the old fart. Ranked dead last in value and income. OUCH!
