    not bad considering most of the NFL views the Jets as a joke

    I was surprised to see the Texans that high.

    You would think the Knicks and Lakers would be worth more but it goes to show how their is a premium on the NFL now which is driven by television.

    Can we all just take this opportunity to laugh at Dan Snyder?

    Also, so crazy that all 32 NFL teams made the top 50 cut... yes, even the Jaguars.

    In other news, Kraft is now officially the biggest sports owner in the world to make an ass of himself.

    One could probably buy the NY Mets for half of what they say. If you can get 45,000 fans to dish out $8,000 each, they can probably buy the Mets for $360 million. I wonder if that could happen? Cash only. They would have to go for it.

    Same with the Jets. It`ll take 77,000 fans to dish out about $16,000 each. Woody just might bite. So much for those fans who dished out the $30,000 PSL`s. They got totally jipped.

    Keep in mind that this is from January 1st to now... and the NFL hasn't had a game since early February.

    The LA Dodgers actually SOLD for $2+ billion. So the numbers here can't be too accurate.

    Also, it's great that the Carolina Panthers are above the Red Sox.

    I think the Yankees at #3 worldwide is pretty impressive for a NY team that's actually in NY.

    Manchester United valuation is Godly. They are about to go public in the US stock market (to avoid regulation not because America loves them) . That will go well....

    That team is a disgrace to the term "franchise".

    Move it to a part of the country where they actually care about pro sports and maybe you got something.

    Yes.

    The StubHub carpetbaggers haven't helped us one iota, buying tickets below face. The old time fans on the lower level that stayed with us for two years have left us now, pretty funny how back-to-back AFC Championship seasons had them feeling good about the upper deck and the 8-8 collapse has them running for the exits saying they're the worst seats on Earth. Nice fans they are.

    It's the loyal, diehard PSL owner that's the lifesblood of the franchise. I'm very proud of what we've helped Woody Johnson achieve.
