Wow, that's ridiculous. You could buy 5 or 6 NHL teams with that much.

The way the NFL pulls in cash, give me 1 NFL team over 5 NHL teams, and I'll still pull in more revenue than the 5 combined.

No question. NFL will probably always be the most popular and profitable.

Over a billion for the Browns?

That would be like someone offering 750M for the Cleveland Indians

Insane

No, not really. Last year Forbes had them ranked #20 for most valuable franchises, at 980 million.

Bears were 8th, by the way, at 1.09 billion.

Bears fans, as you know, I am a Packers fan. I respect all your opinions as far as football goes. I don't often post in this particular thread since it is hard to join a discussion about a rival team, however, I am very interested in your thoughts on something. Below, I posted a bunch of statistics I would like you all to glance over. I am very interested to see where you guys think Aaron Rodgers ranks among current quarterbacks and all-time at this juncture and what you think his future holds. Does he make the Hall of Fame? How many Super Bowls? Top-five quarterback of all-time? Best in the business at the moment? I don't care what you say, but I want to know what the perspective is under the blue and orange sunglasses. I am just curious if Rodgers has earned even rival fans' respect.



























Last Packers post on here until Week 2 discussion, boys.

Rodgers is the best QB in the NFL now but he has a history of concussions. He's one big shot away from being done so I'd hesitate to proclaim him as a future HOF QB

This is true.

On the other hand, all players in this league are one bad shot/injury away from being done, but there is an elevated risk for Rodgers. He just needs to slide.

I would call Rodgers the best in the NFL at the moment. He needs to have 3-4 more high level years to make the HOF. And to be top 5 of all time he probably needs another 6-7 years at a high level at least.

I would agree and would say at least one more ring would not hurt his case.

If Tom gets another ring, he'll probably supplant Montana as the best ever. I wouldn't doubt it being this year.

This. As a diehard Bears fan who can't stand the Packers, I think Rogers is a phenomenal quarterback. But nobody beats Brady if the Pats can win it all this season, no question.

Who?

And why can't guys like Rodgers, who are young in their career, be given the amount of time as a starting quarterback as Brady has had to be given time to cement their own legacy before proclaiming Brady or someone else can never be topped even though we do not know what the future holds for Rodgers, a guy who's sky is the limit?

Or are you saying nobody is better than Brady currently if he wins again?

Dude still had Troy Brown. Whether or not he was a slot receiver, he was a very talented and reliable target. Let's not pretend like David Givens was the most talented wide receiver on that 2001 team.

He was out there every down and was NOT a good blocker. Obviously, Brown was the most talented WR there, but he did take plays off from special teams, defense and just being a slot WR.

That said, when he's your most talented WR, that's still bad.

Great tradition.

Passionate fans do exist in Cleveland. Whenever a Cleveland team finds success, the crowds usually do show. I mean, the Indians drew some big crowds in 2007, the Browns did when they were 10-6 and during the 1960s-1980s, and the Cavs did when LeBron was running the show.

NFL teams generate the most revenue out of the four biggest professional sports. The Browns have great tradition/passionate fans (even though they are the "new" Browns). Getting even more fans to come and being in the NFL makes it not a bad investment at all.
