Is that the definition of a miser?
That's right. He's only put up a privately funded stadium, been to 4 SBs, and won three of them. Yeah, a real miser with only himself in mind. The NFL would get down on their knees and beg if it would bring them another owner like Kraft, and a franchise like the Patriots.
