This part of Sports Management has gotten huge because gone are the days of an "Owner" and we currently live in the time were their are a collective group of owners that gather together and collectively run a franchise. This brings the question of does this type of ownership detert from the overall sense of customer service for the fan base ? or does this become more about profits?
