Just how good do Bob McNair, Jim Irsay, Bud Adams and Shad Khan have it?

Forbes magazine’s NFL team value list is out.

The numbers are sky-high, with 20 teams rated as worth a billion or more.
  • 5th – Texans, $1.305 billion
  • 12th – Colts, $1.154 billion
  • 19th – Titans, $1.011 billion
  • 32nd – Jaguars , $770 million

How good is it?

Writes Mike Ozanian of Forbes: “[E]ven low-revenue and badly run teams have delivered big returns for their owners. Wayne Weaver paid $208 million for the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars in 1993. The small-market Jaguars have never been to the Super Bowl and have made it to the postseason only twice since 1999. In January billionaire Shahid Khan paid $770 million for the team.”

Quite a growth industry we follow here. Let’s all get together and decide what we can invest in that will provide similar returns down the road.
