I found this article to be extremely interesting. Not only to see the raw numbers of franchise purchase price vs. current value, but how that translates to wins & losses.
Moreover, I think it's even more interesting to look at the NFL teams. Those owners are making money hand over fist.
Anyway I thought this would lead to some good discussion amongst the BCB community. Hope you enjoy.
