    Two responses:

    #1 He might be number 8 on the list but he is number 1 in our hearts. :texflag:

    I hope the Titans never win a superbowl during Bud Adams' lifetime.

    Yeah, I hate the guy who paid millions upon millions of his own money to bring us NFL football back to Houston. Without him, we would at THIS MOMENT only be dreaming and waiting for another franchise to move here.

    Drop the tounge-in-cheek self loathing - If you haven't checked lately, #8 for the Houston Texans should now be a source of pride!

    Its funny to me how everyone gets pissed at the anti-mcnair members for posting, yet the only people making witty remarks are the pro-mcnair people.

    Drop the sensitive routine or take some Midol. I can't help if you are sarcasm challenged. :fingergun:

    Just in case you want to continue the whine, I've had nothing but respect for Mr. McNair and his entertainment acquisition for the city of Houston. My record on the subject represents my thoughts well.

    i'd put him at middle of the road at #16 but that isn't that big of a gap.

    Paul Allen at #28 and Jerry Jones at #27 shows that the author really doesn't have a clue.

    Also to have the 49er ownership at #13 is so ridiculous its not even funny. Since Eddie died, that whole franchise has been in utter shambles.

    And I don't have a problem with Rooney at #1, he parlayed it into becoming Ambassador to Republic of Ireland, but to have Ralph Wilson at #2 is a joke. Why? Because he is old? well he definitely has that covered. Just a total joke. Wilson is one of the cheapest owners and I will give him credit for staying in Buffalo amidst lots of problems but he has already sold out partially to Toronto. He doesn't get that sympathy anymore....plus with revenue sharing he is one of the owners saying they are poor. screw wilson.

    OT - I hate the freaking Bills. Detest them. Too many bad memories...

    I think you need to take some of your own advice (The Midol part). I fully acknowledged the tongue-in cheek nature of your comment - consider that my response to your sarcasm remark (and lucky me, I was able to respond to a comment you hadn't even made yet.)

    Fair enough. :fingergun: <--- was just to show I was having fun, and I knew that you were joking around. Some folks do get upset about these things, so no instigation on my part, just us poking at each other. I've taken my Midol and still got the cramps. Just my luck!

    I found lowbrow humor in the #8 connection, nothing to do with our current #8, but rather the history of McNair's connection to the former #8, all things considered. Silly stuff indeed, but I personally think ranking owners is silly in and of itself. JMO

    Consider a Midol taken as a gesture of good faith by me too (Wonder how long them suckers are supposed to last?).
