don't correlate winning with value, winning is temporary, value is based on much longer time spans. If indy goes in the tank in 5 years, they'd be hard pressed to turn a profit in there. We earned 28M extra WITHOUT the benefit of 12 playoff games and with a large portion of the revenues being equal across the league (TV and related).
toronto should be much higher, but I think forbes has a bit of winning bias in their numbers. I bet if the Raptors
go 2 rounds in the playoffs, next year we'd jump to top 10. I would imagine the Raptors
are a top 6 franchise money wise.
As shown here, they were middle of the pack in profits while paying close to the tax and having a terrible record. TOR's in good shape financially, for sure.
