NFL  > General NFL  > Owners make me sick, how about you?
September 14, 2011, 02:58 PM
Can you stand:
to see an owner in their luxury box eating a 5 star dinner during a game?
seeing owner dressed in a suit that cost more than you make in a month?
laughing?
bet you have more to add to this, please do.

Did you know that buffoon that owns the Dodgers spends $20K a month on a hair stylist?

Seriously how stupid are we as fans?

Don't know about you but I am paying a $25K car loan over 4 years and those payments hurt.

it's different when it's some rich dude that got his money handed to him w/out ever having to work a day in his life. most like this can't possibly appreciate what they have and are usually quite spoiled individuals. can't speak for all owners, but most did not have their money handed to them - most are intelligent men that worked for their success.... and this does not bother me at all - they earned it.... spend as you wish, i say. we fans don't have to support them by paying inflated prices for tickets, beer and hot dogs, but do it every day so they must get some enjoyment out of it or they'd likely not do it...... just saying.

Like Dan Snyder?.....lol..............he gives me the impression of the "poor" little rich boy who had everything handed to him.

I don't know his history, other than he's deadly rich. But, that's just what I'm reminded of when I see his face..........

Now, Jerry Jones, you have to respect him as a business owner. He can swing and deal now. But, his passion (and subsequent ego) is football, namely the Cowboys. He refuses to admit he's failed, and still failing........since the Jimmy Johnson teams................His son, Stephen will eventually take over......:-)....after Stephen had his dad delete Owens, I have a feeling that when Stephen does take over, he'll be running the club from behind the scenes......like it should be.

My luck is JJ will outlive me.............lol

That's just from observing things being said and done over the years.

Dan Snyder is rich and doesn't have a clue on what it takes to field a successful team. He may have gotten lucky when he hired Mike Shanahan.

i bet most of the ''children'' of the original/current owners were born into some kind of priviledge....lol,....definately more than yu/mee.

I don't begrudge a person that is born into privilege because it isn't their fault. I know many kids from rich homes that are responsible citizens and give back to their communities. People should stop engaging in class warfare.

I agree, it isn't the baby's fault that he or she was born into a wealthy family.

That pretty 'rich' coming from Donald trump.

In some ways we are all better off than some others, there is always someone worse off than you think you might be or are. I don't begrudge someone because of their amount of money or social status because it's what's inside a person that counts and how I personally judge a person but that's just my philosophy.

Glad to see some people in this world think a $580 monthly payment is no big deal.
Maybe you could lend me some money that I could forget to pay back? YOU are rich right? What's that harm?

Beer is anything but cheap at an NFL game.

What made you buy a car that you obviously can't afford and is making your life miserable? You could have bought a used car for much less. Last month I watched as people from all over the world brought their beautiful old cars to Monterey/ Pebble Beach to sell them at auction. I don't begrudge people that spend lavishly on these historic works of art. That's just not how I would spend my excess money.
