Sign Manny Ramirez, Become More Valuable!

Mets PoliceSenior Analyst IJanuary 19, 2009

Forbes has the list of the most valuable franchises in sports.

It amazes me that Manchester United is No. 1, because when you look at the Premier League being just within the geographic size of Britain, it is like FC Yonkers being the No. 1 team in the world.

The next three are the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, and the New England Patriots.  I'm surprised the PSL Sellers aren't higher on this list.  The blue ones (No. 8), not the green ones (No. 9).  By the way, Forbes lists a 25-year season ticket waiting list, so the PSL wins in the end.  Finally, the Texans come in at No. 10.

No mention of the Mets—who was No. 5?  It's a baseball team.  You can guess which one—they own their own network and have a new stadium, but never dress in black softball uniforms during the regular season.

Now in a related article from December, Forbes listed Brett Favre jerseys as the second most-sold in the world with 450,000.   Maybe the Mets should sell some Manny merchandise, and move up the list of franchise worth.  To be fair, no baseball jerseys made the Top 10.
