The San Diego Chargers have one of the league's best owners, according to a survey released this week.
Forbes magazine listed Alex Spanos at No. 7 on its list of top owners, which was based on a franchise's recent winning percentage and financial growth.
In the past five years, the average NFL franchise has grown 8 percent in value. Under the Spanos family, the Chargers have seen an 11-percent increase with a 69-percent winning percentage, according to Forbes.
Spanos is no longer involved in the day-to-day operations of the team, as the responsibility has been passed down the family tree.
Son Dean is team president and chairman of the board; son Michael is executive president. Of Spanos' grandsons, A.G. is executive vice president and chief executive officer, and John is director of college scouting.
