OT: Forbes 2017 top 51 most valuable sports teams

Quote:
Below is the full list of the most valuable teams across all sports (51 this year thanks to a tie at $1.75 billion between the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim). Values are based on Forbes valuations done over the past year for NFL, NHL, NBA, MLB, F1, soccer and Nascar (no NHL, F1 or Nascar teams made the top 50).
Not surprising no NHL team made the list.

It always surprises me that the Dallas Cowboys are often 1-3 on the list. Sure they are "America's Team" and one of the flagship NFL franchises, but the NFL is so much more regional compared to the European soccer powers, or even the New York Yankees since the Yankees had has become so embedded in urban culture globally.

Another surprise is I didn't expect Manchester City to be more valuable than Arsenal and Chelsea.

Texas in itself is bigger than most countries. Plus, the Cowboys has been a worldwide powerhouse my whole lifetime. Cowboys fans are literally everywhere. For example, you would think Lebron is a Browns fan but he is a diehard Cowboys fan. Bryce Harper during the MLB all star game was talking about the Cowboys.

Chris Christie is a noted and unapologetic Cowboys fan from New Jersey(and a New York Rangers diehard, if I remember correctly).
