Sign Manny, 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's kind of like FC Yonkers being the No. 1 team in the world.

The next three are the Cowboys, Redskins & Patriots.  I'm surprised the PSL Sellers aren't higher on this list.  The blue ones (No. 8) not the green ones (No. 9).  Oh by the way Forbes lists a 25 year season ticket waiting list, so the PSLers win in the end.  

Then some more soccer teams (again this would be like Corona United and Suffolk being in the top 10).   Finally, the Texans of all teams come in at No. 10.

No mention of the Mets in the article I read.  Who was No. 5?  It's a baseball team.  You can guess which one - a hint, 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 wolrd with 450,000.   Maybe the Mets good sell some Manny merch and move up the list of franchise worth, although to be fair no baseball jerseys made the Top 10.
