    Do you think Red McComb was a successful NFL Owner?

    Okay this is a fair question was Red McComb a successful NFL owner?

    Now put aside your hatered for the man. (Try to keep it clean)

    Mesure his success or failure from a pure business standpoint, and NFL performance standpoint was Red McComb a success at the NFL level?

    No.
    No Superbowl wins or appearances and the team declined after his first year.

    On a buisiness level he made a lot of money so yes.

    On a football level, yes and no.

    Money wise, YES!

    But I sure wouldn't buy a used car from him!

    Good point...There is a football level of success vs a business level.

    I'm going to revise the question.

    Being a successfull NFL owner includes leading a solid, strong organization both on and off the field, not just making money, in my opinion. So, no, Red wasnt a successful NFL owner. Maybe he was a good businessman in a sense that he made a big profit with Vikings, but thats another story.

    I was just curious on what people thought. I don't think I tried to postion it as the "Best question ever" sorry for the confusion.

    It's NOT the best question ever. I'm not sure I know what is the best question. But I would be curious on what defines a GOOD question? If you don't mind sharing you seem to have some great insight thanks!

    I knew this would be a hard question for Viking Fans. Thats why I asked people to set aside their hatered for Red. I wanted to avoid ANOTHER Red bashing thread.

    But I will entertain you and ask again was he successful?

    Remeber this is a forum and people on occasion do discuss topics.

    Not just Red Sucks...Fire Tice....Pep is a loser.... We need Moss....
