I Have GOT to Buy an NFL Team


scroogeForbes Magazine released their annual valuations of the NFL franchises and despite a downturn in the economy the numbers are staggering.

The average NFL franchise is worth $1.042 BILLION and makes $237 million in annual revenue. That seems like a lot.

Leading the way are the Dallas Cowboys who are worth $1.65 billion, making them the most valuable sports franchise in North America and second worldwide only to Manchester United. Never mind that they haven’t won a playoff game since 1996 or a Super Bowl since 1994, somehow the Cowboys still are the name brand of NFL teams.

The Washington Redskins are second at $1.55 billion but lead the league in revenue at $345 million a year. New England is third in value at $1.361 billion but second in revenue at $302 million.

At the bottom of the barrel are the Oakland Raiders, worth a mere pittance of $745 million. In total, 18 teams are worth over a billion dollars. Not too shabby.
