Question of the Day
HE SAID WHAT?
“I say to my fans that I am not stupid. I know the difference between good and bad and there are things that are going to be known. …” — Detroit’s Neifi Perez, who became the first player penalized for testing positive for a stimulant under MLB’s drug program

Tito Ortiz, the “Huntington Beach Bad Boy,” faces Rashard Evans, a product of the show “Ultimate Fighter,” at UFC 73 (PPV).
His teams have gone through three full-time head coaches and one interim head coach. His teams have employed myriad offensive and defensive philosophies. His teams have started nine quarterbacks and drafted two passers in the first round. And his teams have two playoff wins under his watch.
No, really, they did.
If the bottom line in the NFL is winning, ranking Snyder fifth is mind boggling. Since 2000, the Redskins have had records of 8-8, 8-8, 7-9, 5-11, 6-10, 10-6 and 5-11. In 1999, Snyder was the owner but took over so late in the offseason, his camp didn’t play a big hand in building that playoff team.
According to a press release by SI, Michael Silver ranked the owners “taking into account many factors: business savvy, devotion to league growth, aggressive pursuit of winning with one overriding consideration: If you’re a fan of the team in question, do you want this person making the big decisions?”
SI’s top five: Robert Kraft (New England), Jerry Jones (Dallas), Jerry Richardson (Carolina), the Glazer Family (Tampa Bay) and Snyder. I agree with Kraft and his family as No. 1. The Patriots are the model franchise in the league. I’m not as sure about Richardson, Glazer and Snyder. I would have put Indianapolis’ Jim Irsay — because of the Colts’ success — and Pittsburgh’s Dan Rooney — because of the Steelers’ consistency — in the top five.
