[u]Dallas Cowboys most valuable NFL franchise at $3.2 billion[/u]
[b]- The Dallas Cowboys lead the Forbes NFL Team Values list for the eighth consecutive season, rising in value by 39 percent to $3.2 billion.
The Cowboys were valued at $2.3 billion last year, so owner Jerry Jones is now $900 million richer -- on paper, at least -- in the financial magazine's annual rankings released Wednesday.
The Cowboys are second in value only to Real Madrid ($3.4 billion) among all global sports franchises, according to Forbes.
The New England Patriots ($2.6 billion), the Washington Redskins ($2.4 billion), the New York Giants ($2.1 billion) and the Houston Texans ($1.85 billion) round out the top five.[/b][url=http://www.torontosun.com/2014/08/20/dallas-cowboys-most-valuable-sports-franchise-at-32-billion]http://www.torontosun.com/2014/08/20/da ... 32-billion[/url]
Jerry Jones and the Cowboys can thank Steve Ballmer, Shelly Sterling and the Los Angeles Clippers for that!
