Forbes magazine has released this years list of the “The 50 Most Valuable Teams In Sports”, and the Dallas Cowboys were ranked No. 2 in the world behind the English soccer club Manchester United. The New York Yankees followed the Cowboys at No. 3.
Dallas is the highest ranked of the 32 NFL teams. The Washington Redskins ranked second in the NFL behind Dallas in overall worth, but are considered to be the most profitable franchise in the NFL.
The Cowboys team value is estimated to be at $1.81 billion dollars and of course that includes Cowboys Stadium, one of the most expensive stadiums in the world. The state of the art stadium has 15,000 club seats that sell for $340 each and they are sold out for every home game.
Now that’s all fine and dandy, and I congratulate Mr. Jerry Jones on such a great honor, but I’d rather see us ranked as the No. 1 team in the NFL Standings rather than topping some list that’s gawked over by the Billionaires Boys Club.
How about we spend some of those mega-dollars on putting a better product on the field and not wasting so much money on over-the-hill and unproductive players. It’s time to start spending those millions wisely and put an end to spending foolishly on players who are unworthy of wearing the proud uniform of the Dallas Cowboys.
