Are the Dallas Cowboys The Best in the NFL? They’re Definitely the Most Expensive!

Let’s face it: When it comes to football, everybody has their favorite team, but it’s hard to knock the Dallas Cowboys as a franchise. Love them or hate them, they win and they’re also worth a lot of money! In 1989, Jerry Jones purchased the Dallas Cowboys for $140 million. The sale marked the first time anybody had ever paid more than $100 million for a sports team and it came just five years after the previous owner, H. R. (Bum) Bright, had purchased the Cowboys for $60 million.

In the 2000s, the value of the Cowboys franchise hovered around 50% more than that of the average NFL franchise. However, over the last decade, the Cowboys valuation has grown from $1.50 billion to $4.80 billion, according to the latest valuations by Forbes, while the average franchise has increased 161% from $960 million to $2.50 billion.

What’s so special about the Cowboys? There stats certainly do grant them a great deal of bragging rights:
