Website names Brown in top 10 of "most despised owners"

Mike Brown Mike Brown

A sports website has named Bengals owner Mike Brown as one of the top 10 "most despised owners" of all-time.

Real Clear Sports put Brown at Number Five on their list, saying the biggest complaint from fans is that Brown refuses to hire a general manager.

"Brown takes on the responsibilities of both owner and GM and many don't feel he has the acumen to make those football decisions," the article states. "This is one of the main reasons multiple fan organizations have sprung up to protest against Brown's ownership and push for his resignation at least as GM."

Donald Sterling of the Los Angeles Clippers tops the list, followed by Frank McCourt from the Dodgers, Al Davis from the Raiders and Tom Hicks of the Liverpool FC.
