51. Sergio Marchionne
54. Wade Phillips
> Highest-paid team was considered a Super Bowl front-runner at the start of the year. Phillips was fired after a 1-7 start to the season. Recently hired by Houston Texans to be Defensive Coordinator, taking over a defense that ranked in the bottom 4 in the NFL.
55. Fred Wilpon
> The Mets lost nearly $50 million in 2010, the worst decline among all baseball teams in recent years. Apparently, Wilpon used Madoff’s fund as part of the ball club’s investment strategy and is now being sued for $1 billion by the trustee for the victims of the Ponzi scheme. This year, the team is on pace to lose another $50 million.
56. John Galliano
> The creative director for the House of Dior has a flair for the absurd. His drunken, anti-Semitic rant was simply tasteless. He is now unemployed.
57. Jason Kilar
> CEO of Hulu sees promising online video site fall apart under withering competition from NetFlix, Comcast, YouTube, and AppleTV. So much for IPO plans.
58. Brian Moynihan
> Bank has done so poorly under his leadership that the government recently rejected his plea to reinstate dividends after granting it to all of B of A’s peers.
59. Dmitry Medvedev
> Medvedev remains Prime Minister Putin’s puppet. Approval ratings for both are all at all-time lows, and the two were recently seen fighting in public.
