Washington Commanders owner Dan Snyder (left) and Phoenix Suns owner Rovert Sarver (right) have been in the news for all of the wrong reasons.

Former Los Angeles Clippers owner Donald Sterling was accused of similar actions between both Snyder and Sarver. Both LA football team owners Dean Spanos and Stan Kronke have made controversial decisions, with the Rams being sued by the city of STL.
