They have 8 super bowl wins between them. Both franchises have storied histories. Washington is in the middle of a rebuilding process that looks like it will yield incredible results. Cowboys are contenders in a stacked division. Its not hard to see why they're so valuable.

This is a load of crap. We all know that sports franchises lose millions if not billions a year because evil greedy players demand such frivolous salaries. All franchises are just barely held together by benevolent owners who freely lose their own money because their passion is to entertain us.

Rabid fan bases also.

Redskins fan all my life because of Sonny Jurgensen and the fact that the George Allen Redskins had more Texans on their team than the Irving Whizbangs. High school was fun in the 70's.

I read that Pittsburgh is 12th in the NFL, 21st in the world in franchise value. Compared to Washington and Dallas as of late, it seems more valuable than those two based on performance. Bang for the buck.

They are. I had to wake up a few years ago and it amazed me. the last god knows how many years have been "rebuilding" years. It seems like all Snyder wants is the newest shiney player so he can sell more jerseys for a year or 2 before getting another big name. God help RG3.

Some maybe, but over the years reality has kicked in for most regarding that "this is the year" thing.

There's nothing wrong with loyalty though. I've been a Redskins fan my whole life. When I was 10, that was really great. For the 20 years since, it's been really not. But that doesn't change based on who owns the thing or how much he's a royal fark-up who pisses me off. Dan Snyder will die someday, and I will still be a Redskins fan. For me, it's not a choice.

This is just willfully ignorant. This was a team that was in most games till the very end, usually losing to a Rex Grossman turnover/brain fart (vs dallas, vs new england etc.) . This was their biggest weakness and they addressed it by drafting a franchise QB. Their running game was good, producing three different players with 100 yard games. Their O-line provided great protection until injuries started mounting up, which is why they drafted some depth. Even if you don't like Pierre Garcon or Josh Morgan, they are waaaaaaaaaaaaay better than Jabar Gaffney and Donte Stallworth. The secondary needs a little help but other than that the defense was stellar. Orakpo and Kerrigan are studs and Fletcher remains a tackling machine.

i didn't say the rebuild would produce immediate results (which it won't given the division and this year's schedule against the AFC north), but it will produce.

So can someone explain to me why the Redskins always rank so high on these lists? I understand that they have a passionate fanbase and a storied history. A lot of teams have passionate fanbases and storied histories, and they don't suck. And although the DC area is a relatively large (not huge) market, it also has a lot of transients who likely continue to follow their hometown teams. For the life of me I can't see why they rank ahead of the Giants, the most natural head-to-head comparison in my view.

Also, I thought nothing was a better indicator of value than a recent sale; the Dodgers' $2 billion price would put them second on this list instead of sixth. Appraisers tend not to assume irrationality by buyers.

2 years. Snyder hasn't allowed a rebuilding year until recently, believing that he could just buy a championship through free agency and thus perpetuating losing season after losing season by trading away draft picks and mangling the cap space. Now that he isn't playing fantasy football with the team they might get out of the cellar... in the next few years.

As a Redskins fan, I have to say the O-Line was just average. This is "great protection" compared to what the Redskins have had for a few years, but it was still pretty mediocre. I am hopeful the rebuild is on the right track, but I won't hold my breath

As a Bears fan, I just had to laugh at that. When Rex is your starting QB, you KNOW your team will find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!

Peter principle. He's a fantastic offensive coordinator, but not really cut out to be a head coach. Yeah, the 92-94 Niners had a hell of a lot of talent, but he had it running like a well oiled machine. Just tremendous, tremendous playcalling. Contrast that to Marc Trestman, the guy who replaced him in '95, who was only capable of calling short passes to the flat, and the '95-96 Niners looked absolutely nothing like the unit that had just steamrolled their way to the Super Bowl.

Losing Ricky Watters and William Floyd didn't help, but his "solution" was to throw 10 passes a game to Adam freaking Walker, and hope that he might break one and run for 5 yards instead of his usual 2.

They're not. Note how every NFL team is listed and are within a billion of each other. Not every team owns their stadium. I fact, if stadiums were included, the Dodgers would be over 2B and the Yankees would be over 3B (7B if you included YES).

I don't think I'm quite as cynical as you (no offense intended, seriously). I used to be, but it wasn't fun. Now I'm more of an "Always hopeful, never naive." I hope this season is great, but I don't think it will be just based on history. I'll watch every game I can, but if I have something better going on that day, I'll do that instead. I fully accept the possibility that RGIII could be the next great quarterback, but I'll reserve judgement until he actually plays a down.

Ironically, my approach to the Redskins these days is "Stay Medium" (HT to Jim Zorn).

I think the birth of my son had a lot to do with it. I just don't see the point in getting too wrapped up either way. When I see people flipping out in a positive matter, it doesn't really bug me anymore...It's just kind of silly to me now...

For the life of me I can't see why they rank ahead of the Giants, the most natural head-to-head comparison in my view.

Also, I thought nothing was a better indicator of value than a recent sale; the Dodgers' $2 billion price would put them second on this list instead of sixth. Appraisers tend not to assume irrationality by buyers.


Simple answer: Fed Ex Field. Holds 80,000 people who think Joe Thiesmann is still throwing to the likes of Art Monk and John Riggins is beating the opposition into the ground. Take stadiums out of the valuation and I doubt they'd be up there with the 'Boys.

Nana's Vibrator: The Redskins fans that I know have to be among the most loyal (delusional?) fans in sports. They've been in Snyder-mode for what seems like 20 years now and still buy tickets and excess gear and talk people into believing that this is the year.


Don't forget their "sellout streak". Now at 368 games!

facisto: i didn't say the rebuild would produce immediate results (which it won't given the division and this year's schedule against the AFC north), but it will produce.


when you are in a decades long "rebuild" yes... at some point it will produce results, even just through sheer random statistical variation.

I like RG3, but Skins are still the runts of a division with three other good to great teams.

Mike Brown and the Bengals figured out 25 years ago that winning isn't as profitable as consistently going 6-10 and taking the TV money

In the interest of being Real Real here, Cowboys fans aren't much less delusional, if at all...

We're talking about two teams who, in the last 15 years, have combined for a grand total of 3 Playoff Wins.

The Muthaship: AddictedToFoobies: Meanwhile, Steelers fans smile and nod.

/mostly because they're drunk and incoherent

Football has given them the ability to count to 6!


Hic, I resemble that remark. BTW, we can count to 7 and when we take the stairway to seven, we'll be able to count to 8.

Suck it haters.

facisto: and they addressed it by drafting a franchise QB.


A little premature, don't ya think? Let's at least get to training camp before labeling RG3 a "franchise QB"
