This is a historical list filled with many worthy candidates, but I would have to think that Wilpons need to be at least an dishonorable mention here. The Bernie Madoff situation, the shady stadium deal brokered by Madoff money, and that is before we get into their lies and general incompetence. The Wilpons may have survived inclusion from this list, but we all know the time and score.

No, you never defend ownership. But you seem to get tremendous satisfaction from anything you can use to put them in a positive light.

You must be making some physic interpretation there because I didn't read anything that even remotely resembles a positive light in that statement.

As one of the biggest shills for management on this board you have a nice, solid reputation. No you didn't say anything about ownership, you just get a kick out of anything you can use to bash people who actually care about the future of the team.

The OP has a long, established tendency to defend Wilpon/Katz at every opportunity. Taking great pleasure in "annoying" people who recognize the current ownership as the biggest problem with the team is par for the course.

Why don't you go start another thread about how ownership is increasing payroll. Were you lobotomized?

I am the OP and I challenge you to find a post where I am defending Wilpon/Katz.

You are? Because the post you responded about was made to a different poster and had nothing to do with you.

Make a top 10 worst "living" owners list and see what happens.Either way it's all based on opinion.
