1985-1994 Philadelphia Eagles

Norman Braman was an American football team owner. He was the owner of the Philadelphia Eagles. Norman and his brother-in-law, Ed Leibowitz, officially became the owners of the Eagles on April 29, 1985. Norman owned 65 percent of the team while Ed owned 35 percent until July 16, 1986 Norman bought the rest of the team from Ed. Braman sold the team to movie executive Jeffrey Lurie in 1994.

Braman has a track record of waging battles against the use of public money.

In 1982, he led a successful campaign against a city sales tax that would have renovated the Miami Orange Bowl for Dolphins owner Joe Robbie. In 1999, he helped defeat then-County Mayor Alex Penelas' campaign for a one-cent sales tax that would have cost taxpayers billions of dollars to improve mass transit[1] Currently he operates various car dealerships in both Miami-Dade County and Palm Beach County, Florida.

He recently filed a lawsuit against the Florida Marlins and others over their plans to build a new ballpark. Though the lawsuit was filed many agree that Miami-Dade County will win in its attempts to finally construct a stadium for the Marlins. Braman however says that he is ready to fight his case as far as the Supreme Court.

He owns a 175 ft Feadship, named Kisses, and resides on the ultra-exclusive/private Indian Creek Island.
