Sports Executive
    Many detractors refer to him as 'Reinsdork.'
    Prior to the 1990's, he was widely viewed as being a cheapskate owner.
    He is widely considered one of baseball's most hard-ass owners.
    He contradicted his own statement about inflated player salaries when he signed Albert Belle to a lucrative contract.
    Many Chicago area sports fans use him as the primary scapegoat for allowing the Bulls to have a fire sale following their sixth NBA championship.
    While he is known to spend money on the White Sox, he heavily micromanages the Bulls.
    He was instrumental in Major League Baseball's decision to oust commissioner Fay Vincent and replace him with Bud Selig.
    He was a successful real estate agent prior to landing in the sports scene.
    His teams have won seven championships combined under his regime.
    He returned the White Sox back to relevance after purchasing the club from original owner Charles Comiskey.
    He helped finance the construction of both Comiskey Park II (since re-named U.S. Cellular Field) and the United Center with his own money.
    Under his ownership, he watched the Bulls record 11 consecutive years of home sellouts.
    He is the third owner in North American pro sports to preside over championship teams in two different sports.
    He is considered one of pro sports most influential voices as he succeeded in convincing the NBA and baseball to implement both increased revenue sharing and a salary cap, along with charging big budget teams a luxury tax.
