Stephen Ross

Philadelphia StarsStephen Ross bought a controlling interest in the Baltimore Stars from original Stars owner Myles Tanenbaum in 1986, only to never see the team take the field following the antitrust trial with the NFL.

Ross founded a real estate management company, Related Cos., in 1972, which grew to a behemoth in the field.

After a failed attempt to buy the New York Jets, in 2008 Ross purchased a controlling interest in the Miami Dolphins, becoming the only former USFL team owner to buy a National Football League team.
