Fueled by ever-increasing television contracts and by a wave of new, revenue-producing stadiums, today's NFL is collectively worth $33.3 billion, up from $11.6 billion a decade ago, while adding just two teams.

Major League Baseball's 30 clubs are worth a collective $14.1 billion, up from $6.6 billion in 1999. Growth rates are similar in the NBA, to $11.4 billion from $5.3 billion, and in the television-challenged NHL, to $6.6 billion from $3.6 billion.

Won't be long before the Heat are up there with the Lakers and Knicks, too.

ya, because they only had 8 home games.....we had 41....makes sense...

I'm surprised the Redskins are in the top 5. And a relatively new expansion team is #10.

I'm surprised that some soccer teams generate so much revenue, are so high on this list, yet supposedly are in up to their necks in debt.

DVS 07-22-2010 10:42 AM

I hear ya fancy. Man U is #1 but thats all Monopoly money. Its a fictitious value Man U is only by a bazillion banks

thought 07-22-2010 11:23 AM

i don't want to believe the lakers are only one spot ahead of the knicks, that's crazy.

Why is that funny? Raptors play in a 19,800 seat arena (and average 17-18k), they play in a 90,000+ seat stadium.

i see they have a new sponsor on the jerseys (AON)
too bad cause AIG and Man U were a match made in heaven

What's funny to me is the Raptors are almost worth as much as the leafs and more then the Canadians. These were the numbers a few years ago. How is this possible?

Quote:

The Toronto Maple Leafs held down top spot in Forbesí list of the most valuable NHL franchises released Wednesday.

The business magazine judges the Leafs to be worth $448 million US, based on a formula which values the team at about 2.4 times annual revenue. The New York Rangers are second at $411 million and the Montreal Canadiens are third at $334 million.

Stop being a United hater. It's ugly, son, Ugly! :dancing:

They're also being sponsored by Saudi telecom (I love the new kits). I'm just waiting for one of these oil tycoon dudes to step up and save United. Damn Glazers!

Dude, then I REALLY can't take you seriously! :dancing:

You have a good side. Probably should win the EPL again next year provided no one else makes any significant moves.
