Only one team has ever been bought for $2 billion, and it’s not the Dallas Cowboys. But, only one team is worth $2 billion, and it is the Dallas Cowboys.
Forbes, on Wednesday, unveiled its ranking of NFL teams, and Jerry Jones’s propaganda machine is the league’s first-ever double-barreled franchise. (Let’s just say ‘double-barreled’ means ‘double-billioned’.)
Actually, they’re worth $2.1 billion, says Forbes.
That’s apparently a conservative estimate. Hey, spurs pay.
Rounding out the top three is New England at $1.63 billion and Washington at $1.6 billion.
So, you know when everyone was saying, “Hey, why did Magic Johnson buy the Dodgers for $2 billion? They’re not worth $2 billion, are they?” They were right. (Forbes, last year, has the Dodge at $1.4 billion.)
But, hey, everyone loves Jerry Jones, right?
