I hope you weren't talking to me since I clearly said that owners try to make the numbers look as bad as it's possible and I most certainly don't believe it's the truth (well, if there's such thing as truth here).

But I really don't understand people who trust Forbes' numbers when they haven't even seen the books and with Forbes having a very poor track record when it comes to estimating the value of a franchise!!
