I will re-write a few of them for you guys.

2. Anton Johnson - Southend United

Johnson was arrested when £70k of Southend's Christmas Club fund went AWOL in 1989. Against league rules, he was also chairmen of Rotherham at the time. Controversially returned at scarborough in 1998 and said they would become a premier league side- by the end of the season they were relegated from the Football League! Also owned Crocs nightclub in Eseex, a venue noted for having live crocodiles kept in glass tanks in the foyer.

Did anyone go to this Crocs?


8. Marge Schott - Cincinnati Reds

The first women ever to buy a baseball team. She achieved infamy by insulting every minority group possible. Asked, 'why is this happening to me?' when a game was postponed after the on-field death of an umpire [she apologized by sending flowers to the family that had just been sent to her by a TV company]. Refused to hire scouts -["all they want to do is watch Baseball"] and insisted her dog a St Bernard appear in al official photos.
