SI.com has compiled its list of the best and worst owners in sports: five each from Major League Baseball, the NFL, NBA and NHL.

Our list was determined by a number of factors, including the willingness to spend money to improve the team; the stability and capabilities of the front office and management; the amenities at the team's venue; and the club's culture and interactivity with fans. Of course, weighing heavily in the decision was the team's success or failure on the field.

So who's No. 1? We picked the owners of the Boston Red Sox, Pittsburgh Steelers, Los Angeles Lakers and Detroit Red Wings. Bottom? We went with the owners of the Baltimore Orioles, Oakland Raiders, Los Angeles Clippers and Toronto Maple Leafs.

Agree or disagree? Let us know your thoughts.

I just saw recently that Detroit Lions owner William Clay Ford is still on the worst owners list, hopefully this upcoming Super Bowl win will change that!
