Jets Ranked Ninth Most Valuable Sports Franchise

Forbes.Com recently  comprised a list of the most valuable sports franchises and athletes.The SportsMoney 50-50, the name it was given, ranked the world's top 50 teams and top 50 athletes.

The Jets weighed in at #9, with a net worth of $1.17 billion and extremely loyal fan base.

The criterion that went into establishing the SportsMoney 50-50 lists is as follows:

The SportsMoney 50-50 includes teams from five sports: baseball (with 5 teams rich enough to make the cut), basketball (2 teams), football (all 32 NFL teams--credit national TV deals worth $4 billion annually), motorsports (2 teams) and soccer (9 teams). For the athletes we factored in salaries, bonuses, prize money, endorsements, appearance fees and licensing income earned over the past 12 months. Athletes from nine sports made the cut, with NBA players making up 30% of the list. Americans dominate, but there are 16 different nationalities represented.

  1. Manchester United
