I remember when the top NFL teams were worth $500 - $600 million or so 20-25 years ago, the values have increased dramatically. The rich get richer, and billionaires net worth increases.

Commanders have arguably the worst ownership in sports and still crack the top 15.

IMO the Coyotes should be an AHL team to the Golden Knights with such a small seating capacity; at least Vegas is a much more transient and tourist-friendly metro that can draw a lot more visitors attending games. I'd even think an NHL team in Salt Lake would probably draw more than 5K.

Speaking of the NHL, I'm surprised the top spot (The Toronto Maple Leafs) only came in at #61, even though hockey has really grown over the decades, a far cry from the six teams and later not being broadcast stateside on a major network in the 1980s. Even the Raptors are more valuable than the Leafs, and this is despite NHL ticket prices that are very comparable with the NBA and had a headstart on on-rink advertising. MLS still doesn't have a team in the top 100, which shows how many still don't consider it one of the major North American sports.

And despite their recent troubles as of 2021, the Orioles are still a respectable for a small market #18 of #30 among all MLB clubs, in fact better than the more popular Ravens at #21 of #32.

The Giants have been nearly as bad, but I see Giants gear all over the place and bars have lines out the door on football Sundays (75% Giants, at least here in Hoboken).

Whenever I look at these rankings, I wonder if owning your own stadium/arena is a factor. Real estate values could be a big factor. I'm not sure though.

I think the Coyotes thing is a bit misleading. They are in-between stadiums as a new one is getting built, but they usually average between 12-15,000/game. Still one of the lowest in the league, but not sub-10,000 like Ottawa and Buffalo this past season.

Amazing isn't it? The worst owner in the league, worst performance under this fat boy, wrecks the culture and team and its still a money making machine. What a dog of a franchise. I wouldn't spend a single dime on this mess. Why the league has not forced this crook to sell the team is absolutely crazy. The league can go to hell.

Detroit Lions have the worst ownership in sports hands down. The Detroit market still has more than enough upper middle class disposable income to compete with its peers, not to mention a giant corporate presence. There is no excuse for that team to be worth less than the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team that has a primary and secondary market presence 1/5th the size of Detroit. That doesn’t even include the fact that the Jags have 60+ years less history behind them as a brand. The Ford family needs to sell that team out of mercy to the state of Michigan.

Shame is, they only a decade or so ago were #2 to Dallas in the NFL in value seeing them outside the top 5 to me bites.

New stadium will probably bump them up a tad.

Redskins/Commanders are a blue blooded franchise of the NFL along with the Green Bay Packers, Chicago Bears, NY Giants and Pittsburgh Steelers, there will always be a contingent who are fans of the team regardless of one owner.
