Wow. If a million of us get together with $450 each, we could compete with the five other would-be owners.

Peter King (FMIA) wrote:
A couple of weeks ago, I saw reports that the Broncos could sell for at least $4 billion, with four prospective owners understanding the pricetag and yet staying in contention to buy the team. On Friday, I was told it will be closer to $4.5 billion, with a fifth owner candidate in the picture. And I looked up the recent history of team sales. Six teams have changed hands this century: Miami ($1.1 billion, 2008), the Rams ($750 million, 2010), Jacksonville ($770 million, 2012), Cleveland ($1 billion, 2012), Buffalo ($1.4 billion, 2014), Carolina ($2.275 billion, 2018).

Amazing, especially considering that when Forbes did its annual valuation of franchises this year, the Broncos were 10th. So if the Broncos are 10th and worth $4.5 billion, what are the rolling-in-dough Cowboys worth? Forbes says $6.5 billion. The smartest business consultant in NFL circles, Marc Ganis, told me he thinks Jones would get $8 billion or $8.5 billion if he tried to sell. Jones, when I asked him, said:

“Ten up.”

Asked to clarify, he said, “more than $10 billion.”

“But let me make this very clear,” Jones said. “I’ll say it definitively. I will never do it. I will never sell the Cowboys. Ever.”

Excuse me. The $4.5 billion prediction was off by $150 million. Chump change in the NFL.

NBC Sports Edge wrote:
The Broncos have reached a $4.65 billion sale agreement with Walmart heir Rob Walton and his son-in-law Greg Penner.

The Broncos had been in ownership limbo since Pat Bowlen, who purchased the team in 1984, stepped down for health reasons in 2014. Bowlen died in 2019, and the Broncos had been lurching toward a sale ever since. The son of Walmart founder Sam Walton, Rob is 77 years old. The purchase price blows away — blows away — the previous record for a North American sports franchise and surely has other owners thinking about a sale during this period of runaway professional sports team evaluations. The transaction still needs to be approved by the NFL, but that is a formality at this point.

Possibly less than Watson’s player salary.

The only used footballs of value we have are from 40+ years ago

:haha

Maybe the Miami Miracle ball too but NE won the championship that year regardless so I don’t put a lot of stock in that game because of that

I think you mean the Jets.

:haha

Actually, they were worth $3.2 billion in August 2021 according to Forbes. But the Broncos, which just sole for $4.6+ billion, were worth $3.75 last summer. I wonder how much Ross could get if he sold the team. That won't happen as he has plans in place for the next successor of the Dolphins.
