Owner of the Palace of Wisdom
you can criticize Ross for star chasing (Manning, Harbaugh, and Fisher) and making some outlandish comments (Henne would be the best Miami QB since Marino) but I never understood other criticisms. The Fins were losing attendance when Ross became owner and he did a bunch of things to try and get local interest back in the club. Never understood people calling him a joke though. He never really, or at least not yet, played hardball with money and he doesn't get involved with football operations or make himself the face of the franchise. He goes to the locker room to be with the team after the game, and he's been sitting in the war room during the draft to learn how things work.
To me his first few years mirror Arthur Blank's first few years as owner of the Falcons in a lot of ways. Good guy, does a lot of things to get more local interest in the team, star chased (Bobby Patrino, and tried for Bill Parcells) but when that didn't work out he went for lesser known guys (Dimitroff and Smith) and things started working out.
