It got me thinking... the only owner(s) that comes that close to treating their players that way would be Mark Cuban with his Mavs (although easier to give 13-15 guys whatever they want compared to 53). Can anyone think of an owner in sports that comes close to eddie d? Not only caring about the game but being down on the field with them, greeting them in the locker room, caring about them and their families like they were his own, giving them whatever they wanted and needed, etc. Bob Kraft, the Rooney family, Mara family were great owners but not sure they were that dedicated to their players as Eddie was.
