I am not sure there has been a more famous / infamous owner in sports history. The guy was a legend, no doubt about that.

RIP to a great owner.

as a Yankees fan i would like to thank Mr. Steinbrenner for all that he did for the organization. He was a great man and the ruler of the "Evil Empire"

R.I.P "The Boss"

he did bring the Yankees out of a pitiful era of mediocrity when he bought the team in the early 70's. He was the first owner to take full advantage of free agency, though it got to the point that even this Yankee fan realizes that a salary cap is needed to restore an equal playing field in Major League Baseball.

Just keep in mind that the Yankees are not alone in their opposition to a salary cap. If enough teams got on board, the players and owners would have to get it done.

It's interesting that Steinbrenner is getting a lot more love now than he did when he was alive. not uncommon but still

I respect him for the good things he has done for his team, but he's been the main catalyst for what is wrong with the sport and in my mind I will always remember him for that. I don't blame him for the things he did and believed though. He did what was best for his team. It just sucks as a fan of the sport that what is best for his team wasn't in the best interest of the sport as a whole.

I understand why people didn't care for the way he spent money. i'm not particularly invested either way. he was sorta the butt of a lot of joke and now he's being revered in a sense. it's just interesting to me. makes me wonder how Bud will be viewed when he passes on.

Probably much the same but without the championshiops.

It's a sad day for me as a Yankees fan but it's great knowing he went out a champion one more time and knowing his team was in first place this season. :)
