The NFL is the richest sports league in the world, with the average team worth some $957 million. And the Dallas Cowboys, the most valuable team in the NFL, are now the single most valuable sports franchise on the planet, worth $1.5 billion

Let me give you a number.

40-90

That is the record of the Cleveland Browns (1 Post season game, 1 2007 game) Since returning to the league...

We somehow are top 10 in value...

Cleveland loves their football.

The Owners that bought teams 10+ years ago have made a ton of money. Rooney family buying it for 2500 back in the depression. Intersting stuff.

First in revenue, by 57m :)

Didn't Dallas' value mainly shoot up because of the new stadium finally being put together? Thought I heard that somewhere.

i heard it too, because before that we werent at the top...but someone might know better then i would, but im pretty sure it has to do with the recent projections of the new stadium


but wow talk about a business, its crazy the price alot of people buy their teams for and what their worth now, especially the rooneys, the steelers are going to be in their family for a long time

It has virtually nothing to do with their location. If you look at their debt to value ratio they are the least leveraged team in the league. Their balance sheet is very strong which increases their value accordingly.

The Green Bay packers are 14th in gross revenue with 196 million in gross revenue but with only approximately 38 million in debt. Thus, even though they don't have a new stadium their balance sheet makes them more valuable.

The Colts on the other hand are also in a small market, but due to their revenue and debt load are less valuable despite the new stadium deal.

I'm pleasantly surprised to see the Bucs sitting quite comfortably at #12.

Actually Man U since being taken over by the Glazers aren't even the richest in England, that would be Chelsea FC who are owned by a Russian billionaire and spent 200m in 2 or 3 seasons...

impressive to see them beat the long-time #1 Redskins.

Chargers' position is pretty sad though.

Once the Giants build their new stadium, theyll be #1.

Having a new stadium always leads to an increase in revenue.

Yeah but Jones also has less debt tied to his stadium because of $325 million in taxpayer subsidies. The Giants and Jets got nothing from taxpayers for their stadium. But it is unlikely they will get as much money splitting revenue from an open-roof stadium in New Jersey that Jones will get from a retractable-roof building in Texas. The Cowboys will remain #1.

If you look at the percent change over the past year, you'll see that the Cowboys went up in value 28% (because of there new stadium) where as the league average is an increase of 6.63%.

200 billion? your stadium costs more than the GDP of 147 countries. that's right, 147 COUNTRIES could not afford to build your stadium.

Haha! Take that! Hungry people!

That would be worth $1,027.50 now a days, so it is still not that great of a bargain...

I find it funny that Ralph Wilson and Mike Brown were complaining how small market teams were hurt by the new CBA, yet the Bills and Bengals both netted around 190 million in revenue last year and both teams were in the black, the Bills being the 7th in the league.

What does that have to do with anything? Houston is 4th on the list and they're practically an arena football team.
